Myanmar Geography, Climate, and Weather

The diamond-shaped Myanmar is situated in Southeast Asia, with an area of 676,577 square kilometres. It is bordered by China, Laos and Thailand in the east, and by Bangladesh, India and the Indian Ocean in the south and west.
A land of hills and valleys which are covered by subtropical forests, it is protected by a horseshoe of mountains in the north, east and west, creating profound climatic effects.
Enclosed within the mountain barrier are the flat lands and valleys where most of the country's agricultural activities and population are centred.

Myanmar has a monsoon climate with three main seasons, which varies from region to region due to the country's diverse geography.
Summer is from February through May with the hottest period in April and May when temperatures can reach about 43C in central Myanmar, 36.1C in Northern Myanmar and between 29.4C and 35C on the Shan Plateau.
Rainy season starts from May and lasts until October. The best time to visit Myanmar is in the winter season (November to February) as it is cool and dry.
The coolest month is January where the temperature falls to 16C - in the highlands of over 3,000 feet, temperature can drop below OC. Extremes of temperature are rare.
