Myanmar's Festivals
Myanmar offers a bounty of festivals each year. No matter when you choose to visit, you’re likely to come across a colorful celebration, filled with music and dance. If you wish to immerse yourself in Burmese local life and experience some of the country’s most popular festivals, look no further. All Asia Tours offers a wide range of pre- crafted and custom-designed tours that take you directly into the epicenters of Myanmar’s unforgettable celebrations.

Thingyan, Myanmar’s New Year, lasts for a few days in mid-April. Playful festivities include throwing or shooting plenty of water at passers-by (traditionally, monks and elders are exempt). According to tradition, these waters are meant to cleanse the soul by washing away the transgressions of the previous year so everyone can start fresh. To improve karma, Burmese people also spend time making merit by releasing captive animals and offering gifts of food.

The Phaung Daw Oo Pagoda Festival is one of Myanmar’s largest annual Buddhist celebrations and typically takes place for nearly three weeks in September and/or October. Royal barges, which sail across Inle Lake, house four out of five revered Buddha images. Festivities also include thrilling boat races.

Myanmar’s Tazaungdaing or ‘Festival of Lights’ usually takes place in November. These celebrations include scores of hot air balloons in almost every imaginable shape, size, and color that ascend into the sky. This popular festival also offers plenty of music and delicious local food.
