Myanmar (Burma), land of Buddhist pagodas and temples, paddy fields and serene rural landscapes, is a magical, deeply spiritual country with a complex history. A burnished orange glow lights up the scenery and a thousand pagoda spires come into view as you ride in a hot air balloon over the ancient city of Bagan. Paddling a slender long-tail wooden boat on Inle Lake, examine stilt houses and floating kitchen gardens, and men fishing using traditional means—the daily life of locals. Get a bird’s-eye view of Mandalay from atop Mandalay Hill, and then stop off at the nearby Sandamuni Pagoda with its 18,000-kilo iron Buddha.
Each of Myanmar’s thousands of shrines, Buddha statues, and pagodas are different and unique. Hundreds of ancient red, white, and brown pagodas can be seen at Indein village. The shiny gold-plated and diamond-studded stupa of the capital Yangon’s famous Shwedagon Pagoda is surrounded by 64 smaller ones.
Myanmar is truly like a place frozen in time! Cruise along the mighty Ayeyarwaddy River, go hot air ballooning over the ancient plains of Bagan, go in search of the elusive tiger on elephant back, or enjoy mountain trekking and rafting, and when in the mood for some adrenalin rush, indulge in some world class diving in the Mergui Archipelago.
The ideal time for traveling throughout Myanmar is winter, from mid-October to mid-February, with an average temperature of 20-24°C. Some regions in upper Myanmar have a temperature ranging between 5–10°C. The rainy season (monsoon) is from mid-May to mid-October with an average temperature of 25-30° C. Although it rains heavily in Yangon and Inle Lake, traveling in Myanmar during this season is still enjoyable because Mandalay and Bagan lie in rather dry zone where it rarely rains. The hot season (summer) is from mid-February to mid-May, with an average temperature of 30-35°C.
