General about climate and weather in Myanmar
According to healthvv, Myanmar is a federal state located in Southeast Asia with neighboring countries such as Thailand, Laos and China. The geographical location makes the climate of Myanmar tropical, which is why animals and nature thrive there. It also means that as a tourist from Denmark you can have some completely exceptional experiences – regardless of when in the year you travel.
The tropical climate is used by the population for the cultivation of rice, tobacco, sugar cane, cotton and many other goods that the country can export with advantage. Rice cultivation in particular is widespread, and Myanmar may eventually take home the title of the world’s largest exporter of rice.
If the trip is to Myanmar, the large beautiful rice fields are definitely worth a visit. Especially in the months of October and November, you will be able to experience the rice fields lying like large green duvets, as these are the months just after the wet rainy season. The rice fields have therefore received plenty of heat and rain and are beautiful and ready to be harvested.
