what is the weather like in November compared to November?
Your question needs to be restated. You are asking what the weather is like in November, but you don't have another month listed!
If we want to compare the two months you listed, I would have to say....they are the same.
Well, that was about the dumbest question I have yet to ask anyone! Sorry! I meant to ask what is the November weather like compared to January in Burma, especially Yangon and Mandalay?
The internet has made everybody, including myself, less apt at proofreading! It seems like its all about speed speed speed. Again, I've been as guilty as anybody. I have never traveled to that part of the world so I can't help you out with this one, but I'm sure you will get an answer soon.
According to this link the hours of sunshine, precipitation, high temp are all more or less the same. The only difference is that it will be 6 degrees cooler in the night in January, but in my opinion it may be quite different in the hilly areas.
January will be slightly cooler than November in both Yangon and Mandalay.
In my opinion, January is much better to travel in than November. It is positively cool in Yangon (18 to 25 Celsius) Everywhere else in Myanmar is it about the same I'd say. January is my favourite month here and always will be...
I always thought there were less tourists in November but an acquaintance of me told me the other day that November was his busiest month (he has a travel agency). Not sure whether this is of any help but I thought i'd let you know all the same.
October, November and December is peak season in Myanmar. Long holidays in Oct, November and December. There are big festivals in both October (Thadingyut) and November (Tazaungdaing).
So if you are not coming for those festivals try to avoid as local love to travel around Myanmar as well.
