Winter Vacation Ideas for Travelers to Myanmar

In 1992, the government has encouraged tourism in Myanmar and since then the number of foreign travelers has increased more and more.

For the time being, Myanmar is at the top of most foreign travelers’ interest list.

It is one of the must-visit countries because of its magnificent and magical travel spots, culture and tradition.

If you are wondering the best time to visit Myanmar, pack your suitcase now! Winter’s already come to Myanmar and it’s the perfect period for traveling. Most of the tourists visit Myanmar during winter, usually from November to February, as they cannot resist the intense heat of Myanmar.

The below list shows some popular winter destinations of Myanmar.

Kyaiktiyo Pagoda

One of Myanmar’s most visited pilgrimages in Mon State, Kyaiktiyo Pagoda is a place you should consider for your winter trip.

It is a difficult-to-believe situation to see a small pagoda and a giant boulder on the edge of the hill.

In the early morning hours, a thin layer of cool air and mist-wrapped Mt. Kyaiktiyo.

Recently, a cable car line was launched officially for the convenience of the pilgrims.

Take this great opportunity to enjoy the breathtaking surrounding of Mt. Kyaiktiyo from bird’s eye view.

And if you visit there, pay a visit to the market where you will find a wide variety of strange traditional medicines produced from animals, decorative items and foods.

Ngapali Beach

Get immersed in the unspoiled nature of Myanmar at Ngapali Beach.

Located about 7 kilometers from Thandwe, Ngapali Beach is a wonderful destination in Myanmar.

The clear water of Bay of Bengal, white sand, blue sky, and green palm trees altogether comprise a painting-like scenery of Ngapali Beach.

Enjoy the nature, take a deep breath of cool fresh air and all of your exhaustion and stresses will be relieved!

Including snorkeling, scuba diving and kayaking, a variety of sea sports are waiting for you to make your trip more enjoyable.


Kalaw, a hill station of Western Shan State, is also a wise choice for winter holidays.

The trekking route from Kalaw to Inle Lake (and vise versa) is very popular among locals and foreigners.

This overnight or two-night trip will offer not only the taste of authentic nature but also a great opportunity to learn about lifestyle, culture, and tradition of the locals in a close-up version. Beautiful sceneries will accompany you on your way.
