Petit Futé

Official public Holidays in Myanmar (Burma)

Official holidays in Myanmar.
Office may closed for longer period.
If you need visa or information from Myanmar Authorities or company, be careful to check if they are open. Myanmar Governement office will very probably be closed for all these days, even abroad.

During Myanmar Buddhist New Year (12 to 18 of April), many hotels at the beaches are full with Burmese people, so it is a good idea to book in advance (expect also a rise in hotels prices and transportation costs).
You will be able to do any administrative task from the 11th of April to the 20th of April every year. The governement is offering a 10 days break for the new year.
