Best time to Visit

Good time to visit

Average time to visit

The best time to visit Myanmar is during the dry season from November to April. At this time the warm and sunny days are ideal for sightseeing throughout the country. The temperatures start to rise in March and May to September which is best avoided as this is the rainy season when sightseeing can become difficult.

Insider's View

All the rooms at Areindmar Hotel are the same but I would recommend a room in the old part of the hotel close to the pool and restaurant.

I'd suggest going for a room on the ground floor rather than the first floor for more light

If you want to buy some lacquer-ware, there is a good quality workshop called Moe Moe's not too far from the hotel.

Areindmar Hotel is a charming option in Bagan - a great option for couples. The rooms are situated around a leafy courtyard and are all very tastefully decorated. The interiors are fresh and bright with modern bathrooms. It has a relaxed atmosphere and there is a lovely pool. Enjoy al fresco dining by the pool and make sure you try the beef curry.

Areindmar is a delightful boutique property with plenty of character and style. It has a really nice courtyard and a sweet little restaurant, and a swimming pool. It's divided between two buildings but the older one is the main hotel building so I'd recommend going for this for facilities.
