Several Bagan websites I've visited say that Bagan does not suffer the extremely wet seasons common in SE Asia. Is that true? I haven't yet found a meteorological chart that lists average rain per month. It looks like the only time I could get to Bagan this year would be in the late August-early September time frame. This would be the monsoon season in many parts of SE Asia and a horrible time to visit, if you want to enjoy outdoor activities. I'm wondering if Bagan would be relatively dry in that time frame. I don't mind a little rain, but the days long rainstorms you see in Thailand, for example, would ruin the trip for me (I'm an avid amateur photographer).
Thanks for any advice.
