Cheap Flights to Yangon Airport

 Myanmar is one of the most fascinating Southeast Asian nation for adventurous travelers.  Its largest city, Yangon, is an energetic mosaic of Burmese, Indian, Chinese and British influence, where you can relax in an elegant teahouse, shop in a bustling outdoor market or learn from the monks in a local temple, all within a one-block radius.  For decades it was nearly impossible to visit Myanmar, but now Skyscanner can help Canadian travelers choose from a range of convenient flights from Canada to Yangon Airport. 

Best Time to Book a Flight to Yangon Airport

Like many Southeast Asian countries, Myanmar is hot and dry for most of the year, but the summer months are spiked with frequent torrential rains.  Try to book your flight to Yangon between November and March, when it is usually comfortably warm and dry.  From March until May Yangon stays dry, but temperatures regularly rise to more than forty degrees Celsius. Come June the rainy season begins, and the showers rarely stop until the end of October.  A visit in February or March may align with the city's annual Shwedagon Festival, which is full of food, music, theatre and dancing, while the Burmese New Year usually falls in the middle of April.  Once you decide on your preferred travel dates, set up a Skyscanner price alert to receive an instant notification when airfares to Yangon drop in price.

What to See and Do in Yangon

Yangon's most famous attraction is the Shwedagon Pagoda, a golden temple that stands nearly one hundred metres tall and that is topped with thousands of precious gemstones.  The city's other iconic Buddhist temple, the Sule Pagoda, is situated in the middle of a traffic circle right in the city center.  For easy access to tourist attractions, dining and entertainment, look for a hote that is close to the Sule Pagoda. 

Yangon also has some unusual attractions that appeal to travelers who feel like they've already seen it all.  There is a Drug Elimination Museum full of dated displays about the country's war on opium, and it is possible to see both Aung San and Aung San Suu Kyi's former residences.  From the central train station there also is an slow moving, open-air commuter train that loops around the city; along the ride your wagon will fill with monks and food vendors, and you'll journey past all manner of markets, farms, temples and typical scenes of daily life in Yangon.
