Myanmar in December

October to February is cool and dry and best time to visit, when temperatures in Yangon are pleasantly warm, though with fairly high humidity. It is warm and dry by day, with average highs hovering around 30 ° C (86 °F) across the country. Temperatures have not yet reached stifling, providing ideal weather to visit the many unusual temples. At night the temperatures may drop to 15 ° C (59 °F), so prepare some warmer clothes. October is undoubtedly festival season in Myanmar, which makes it a wondrous time to visit. Thadingyut (Lightning) Festival is the most lively, when the streets come alive with celebrations for three days, and the locals make their way to the nearest pagodas to pay their respects to the nation’s many monks.
