It’s Time for Cool Ngapali Beach

March 7, 2013 by | Filed Under: Adventure Travel, Myanmar, News

March, April and May are traditionally the months in which most Burmese holidaymakers are heading for the beach. Why? It’s nice and sunny and the perfect place to cool down and relax. Besides that – it’s the period that school holidays have started and the Burmese New Year is celebrated, which means that many offices are closed for a day or ten.

The low season sees fewer tourists at the white sandy beaches of Myanmar and we like to take you to one of Myanmar’s best kept secrets. Cast off and sail across blue seas from Ngapali’s shores to the beach at St Andrew’s to find a traditional Rakhine fishing village. While overnighting in a tent on the beach, explore authentic village life of this small community.

Isn’t it too hot to travel in March, April and May – is a question we are sometimes asked. A clear-cut answer is ‘No.’ Temperatures are very similar to those measured in February (actually this year February was extremely hot).  The highest temperatures at the beaches of Ngapali are an enjoyable 32 degrees Celsius. Meanwhile the average temperatures in Yangon range from 27 degrees in February up to 31 in April.

No matter which month you travel to Myanmar – the sun can be hot when travelling in the dry period. Therefore we advise to always drink enough water (provided free of charge during the Khiri tours) and bring a hat.

Khiri Travel Myanmar has put some promotional packages together to benefit reduced rates for a luxury trip through Myanmar with short visits to Bagan and Inle Lake and a long stay at the pristine Ngapali beach at the end.
