June to October are the best months for visiting Georgia. It can get fairly hot in Yerevan (especially in July and August when temperatures can pass 30 degrees Celsius), although the mountain areas will be relatively cooler, with Spring-like conditions for most of the time (although temperatures can drop below zero at the altitudes of more than 3,000 metres even during this period).
The summer in Bhutan, which more or less coincides with the rainy season, lasts from June to August. By early September, the rains have usually ended so this a good time to visit the country. The Thimphu Festival, or tshechu, is held in the early autumn and in 2013 the dates are 14 to 16 September.
September and October can be compared to Spring in the Northern Hemisphere, a delightful time of year to visit Botswana. October, however, can be very hot, particularly towards the end of the month. Temperatures average 15- 31 degrees Celsius and you may experience the occasional rain shower towards the end of October. Any discomfort from the heat is offset by the excellent game viewing at this time of year due to the lack of thick vegetation and the water holes are drying up.
We do not recommend visiting Burma from April to September, when the temperatures are very high (reaching up towards 40 degrees Celsius in April); the rainy season begins in May and lasts throughout the summer months.
A tropical country, Cambodia is warm all year round. June to September is the rainy season, although the rain usually falls in short heavy showers in the afternoon rather than all day.
