There are plenty of fascinating museums to visit in Yangon, as what you would expect from an ex-capital city. Besides the National Museum, where you see gorgeous Burmese craftsmanship, the city also hosts the final resting place of the last Mughal emperor of India. You will be told all about how he came to be exiled from his homeland by the willing local guides.
For farmers and craftspeople in Myanmar, Yangon is also an ideal marketplace.

The Mergui Islands, which are accessible by a short flight and filled with secluded caves, great diving spots and beautiful beaches – making them one of the most natural gems in Myanmar, is a popular destination among ambitious travelers.

The months from November to February are the dry season as well as a pleasant time to visit Myanmar thanks to the lower temperatures it brings to people. It is oppressive to experience the heat of the wet season from May to August. So, a break in February could be perfect for the best conditions for sightseeing in the city together with the surrounding area. With dry season on the wane, this could be cheaper than December or January as well.
