Medical facilities in Myanmar are very basic. In the event of a medical emergency, it is best to seek treatment in Bangkok, Thailand. Take along all prescription medicine needed for the trip.
Myanmar is a year-round destination; each season has its pros and cons. October to February has mild temperatures in the 70s and 80s and little rainfall. February to May tends to be dry and very hot, though not unbearable. May to October is the rainy season, though the central part of the country tends to be drier than the coast.
