In the northern part of Myanmar, the rainy season is able to tour because the rainy season has less rainfall compared to the southern part and the coastal part.

Myanmar Climate (Temperature)
You had better take your belongings to Myanmar
Myanmar is located under the equator, but if you go to mountainous areas in the north, such as Mandalay, Inle Lake, Kalaw, it is cool and cold, because these place is high attitude. You need jacket and sometimes down jacket. From in the evening, the temperature is getting cold.. Please be aware that thick coats, down jackets etc.
In addition, I think that tourists will be mainly moved by highway bus. The air conditioning in the bus is very strong and quite cold. Because the temperature is about 20 degrees, please bring thick coat, fleece, bath towel, etc.
※ Myanmar needs long sleeves, tick Jaket, because the inside of highway Bus is so cold and Mountains area is high atittude, The temperature is low.
