Festival

Myanmar is popularly known as the Land of Festivals because of countless religious and cultural festivals that take place all year round. Some are nation wide festivities while others are popular solely around Yangon or in district Areas. The dates of most festivals and events in Myanmar are times to coincide with the full moon and often specific to one particular pagoda, temple, district or village. It is therefore not possible to provide exact dates for each festival well in advance. In order not to miss any opportunities., check with your travel agent or the Myanmar Embassy for updates closer to the event.

There is always a festival for every month on Myanmar Calendar, which consists of twelve months. However, the first month of the Myanmar calendar is in April or the month of Tagu. Thingyan or the Water Festival is held throughout the country for three to four days.
