Myanmar

Kipling said it just right. 'This is Burma. It is quite unlike any place you know about.' A century later, Burma is Myanmar and it's as mesmerizing as it was to the creator of Mowgli. And the lifting of a 50-year-old Western sanction on tourism is bringing a renewed synergy to its shores.
A land of faith and archaic traditions, development has not yet taken over the charm of this land and its hospitable people. Myanmar remains a yet-to-be-discovered land of magic where simple pleasures matter, and the traveller steps into a world where the stupas and traditional life has endured for centuries and continues to do so. The to-do list here is pretty packed and is an eclectic mix of architecture, natural splendour and cultural experiences.

Best time to visit November-February

Myanmar's Climate can be described as tropical monsoon climate. However, conditions differ widely from place to place due to the country's different topographical situations. The best time of year to visit Myanmar is between November and February. This can be tricky in the sense that the water levels can be low in rivers, making it impossible to make long distance and travel in night time. Myanmar is hugely dry from October to May, and the wet from May/June to early October. Bagan and Mandalay are the hottest, driest regions, where temperatures can reach astronomical highs.

From February until the beginning of the rainy season in October, much of the country, especially north of the country can be dusty and hazy, sometimes hindering long-distance views. Summer season is the best time to find tasty and healthy Durian-famously known as 'The King of Fruits' throughout South East Asian Countries.
