Central Myanmar

The peak summer months of April and May are a good time to visit, though keep in mind temperatures can reach up to 40 degrees Celsius on the low plains of Bagan, Yangon, and Mandalay. In the highlands, including Kalaw, Pyin Oo Lwin and Lake Inle (which are at an elevation of around 1000m), average temperatures are lower, so you’ll be able to cool off here.

During the rest of the year, temperatures are in a pleasant 25 to 30-degree range throughout Central Myanmar, but keep in mind the rainy season from June to August.

Southern Myanmar

Yangon is a year-round destination, though it does get hottest in the south during March and April. November to April is perfect for a beach escape at Ngapali Beach, though keep in mind that during the wet season of May to September, Ngapali closes down.
