January Weather in Ngapali

January Weather in Ngapali

By Wendy Updated Oct. 26, 2022

Weather:January is the coolest month in Ngapali Beach, but the maximum temperature in the daytime can still reach 37°C (99°F). So whether you are doing outdoor activities or having a rest on the beach, ensure that you use sunblock. Temperatures vary greatly between day and night, so swimming at night is not recommended.

Clothing: T-shirts, vests, and shorts are appropriate during this month. You will also need a swimming suit for beach activities, and a pair of comfortable sports shoes or flat shoes.

Things to Do

With the cool weather in January, there are also other outdoor activities you can enjoy apart from beach activities. You can ride a bicycle or a motorcycle to explore the countryside or even take a hot air balloon to appreciate Ngapali Beach from a different perspective.

Discovery Bike Tour

January is probably the best time to plan a bike tour in Ngapali Beach since it is relatively windy and cool. If you are a curious person seeking to know the place in a more personal way, riding a bike with a knowledgeable local guide is the best way. You will be picked up early in the morning and be equipped with a sturdy mountain bike.

The whole tour will last for 3 to 4 hours, and half of the way is dirt road or hiking path. Parts of the trip might be a little challenging, and you might have to push the bike for a short distance. There will be good amount of exercise, but it won’t be too strenuous. Your guide will adjust the pace and schedule breaks to suit your needs.

During the ride, you can enjoy beautiful landscape. Once turning off the main road you will go through a scenic rural landscape, passing by a few villages and farm lands on the way.

A knowledgeable tour guide with good understanding of local culture and customs of the area will be your opportunity to get to know the places more intimately.

Hot Air Balloon Adventure

You will be picked up on time from your hotel early in the morning before 5am and then make your way to the launching field. A table with croissants, pastries, tea, and coffee have been thoughtfully set up for you. Champagne and fruits are also served after landing and there will be certificates of completion as well.

The company only operate a small balloon, but it is as professional as in Bagan. So if going on a hot air baloon doesn't work out in Bagan, you can do it in Ngapali. The flight is safe, and take-off is smooth. The flight will depart from one of the Chin Villages.

The whole trip will last about 55 minutes. In this brief period of time you will see the beautiful scenery as well as rural life of Ngapali.

As you ascend on the balloon, you will begin to see little glittering pagodas at hilltops slowly revealing themselves as the mist around them disappear with the rising sun. You will fly over rivers, valleys, villages and fields where the villagers are preparing to start their day. Some are already hard at work grinding crops with their cattle.
