Holidays & Festivals

 
 

Myanmar people are known for their desire for fun, which is evident in round-the-year festivities celebrated and enjoyed throughout Myanmar. Festivals can be divided into two types - nation-wide and regional. As Myanmar culture is closely intertwined with Buddhism, most Myanmar festivals centre around religious events, and most are designated according to the Myanmar calendar.

Each of the twelve months coincides with one or more festivals. Apart from Buddhist festivals, there are also Christian, Muslim, Hindu and Chinese festivals and some are designated as public holidays.
