Myanmar Festivals & Gazette Holidays

Myanmar is a Land of Festivals and Myanmar celebrates a festival every month. Most of the festivals are cultural and religious those celebrate nation-wide. And a few are specifically regional. Festivals are long-lasting, enjoyable in Myanmar. Normally festival dates are often not fixed as they take place or culminate on full-moon days. The exact dates of the festivals are calculated according to the Myanmar lunar calendar, so only approximate months are given as they can change from year to year.

We Myanmar are festive people. We have one festival at least every month of the year. Some are religions festivals, others seasonal. Most festivals are pagoda festivals, they are on everyday somewhere in the country at all pagoda festivals one can see beautiful Buddha Statues.

Festivals and Holidays are abundant in Myanmar ! Primarily these festivals are religious in origin and based on the Myanmar lunar calendar but there are several National Holidays as well. This affords visitors a wonderful opportunity to gain firsthand insight into the living culture of Myanmar. We collect as Myanmar Festivals in major.

We welcome to invite you in various kinds of festivals in Myanmar happily.
