Yangon, or formerly known as Rangoon, is the former capital city of Myanmar of Burma. It is the largest city in the country, counting 5.2 million people its inhabitants. Yangon may not be as busy as other capital cities in Southeast Asia. However, its distinct old colonial charm, dazzling Buddhist temples, and fascinating day to day street life still make this city a destination worth visiting. Pagodas are the main tourist attractions in Yangon, but Myanmar is also well-known for good food, such as Mohinga (rice noodle in fish soup), coconut noodle, and Laphat Thote (tea leaf salad)
The dry season is the best time to visit Myanmar, with the best conditions overall. Temperatures are comfortable with average highs of about 30°C. Although temperatures can be quite high during the day, the nights during the dry season are chilly, normally around 15°C, so warmer clothes are required. During this season, beach lovers will enjoy the fact that the beach at Ngapali provides an excellent tranquil atmosphere for relaxing, and river levels are high enough for boat-trips. However, the dry season is also considered as the peak tourist season in Myanmar. Therefore flight tickets and accommodation are higher than at other times. Travellers must also expect large crowds at all the tourist attractions in Myanmar.

Due to its tropical climate, travellers can visit Myanmar all year round. However, travellers are advised to try and avoid visiting Myanmar from June to September as this is when the country is experiencing the wet season. Certain tourist attractions like Ngapali Beach will be closed during the wet season due to inaccessible roads. Travellers still intending on visiting the country during the rainy season (May through early October) must make sure to pack an umbrella and some waterproof shoes, because of the city's streets often flood. Travellers are also advised to be careful when walking around town this time of year, as a layer of slime forms, making the sidewalks dangerously slick.
