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.

Clare Monro (Staff)

Han Thar Gardens offers a wonderfully rural escape, just an hour from the busy city of Yangon. Within easy reach of Bago and southern Myanmar (Burma), it provides an excellent beginning or end to a trip to the country. I really enjoyed the food here and loved the main room where you can eat, have a drink or just relax. It has lovely gardens and a fantastic view of the golf course. Staff are friendly and the style tasteful yet characterful.
