Best Time for Cruise in Irrawaddy River

If you want to experience along the Irrawaddy River, a cruise will be the best choice for you. It's very important to consider weather and seasons when deciding to visit Myanmar.

The ideal time to take a cruise in Irrawaddy River should be during the cool dry season between November and February. On those days, the temperature stays at a comfortable level during daytime, and gets cooler at night. This creates great chances to join outdoor activities with no fear of the weather, and to feel the chill of breezes at night.

When the dry season ends in the early of March, the temperature rises dramatically with the high levels of humidity. If you don't mind them, the dry season is still the good time to take a cruise in Irrawaddy River. In this time, the popular destinations will be less crowded and you don't have to hustle in the midst of a press. Even, if you are lucky, you can find better deals on hotels and airfare.

The rain season starts in the late May and lasts to October. So, cruises in Irrawaddy River from Mandalay to Bagan are frequently operated from September to April. Similarly, the season of cruising between the south of Yangon and Bagan and the north of Mandalay also falls in this time. When the rain falls continuously from May to October as mentioned above, the level of Irrawaddy River and its tributaries is raised consequently. It's the time for cruising in the Chindwin River.
