North Thailand

The north of Thailand, including the region of Chiang Mai, stays mostly dry between November and April and it can get a little chilly in the evenings in December. So if you’re heading there at this time, it’s worth packing a few cosy layers. Most of the rain falls in August and September, and if you’re planning a trek or two, you can expect plenty of mud!

Bangkok and Central Thailand

Thailand’s capital, Bangkok is located in the central region of the country and is usually the starting point for most travellers. This region enjoys beautiful weather between November and February and can get seriously hot in March, April and May. Between August to October, there’s often a lot of rainfall which can lead to heavy flooding.

South Thailand

If you’re heading to the south and islands for a dose of tropical beach time during your trip, there are two seasons to be aware of; the wet season and the dry season. These seasons don’t run at the same time on both the East and West coast of Thailand so it’s worth knowing where to go when.

On the west coast the southwest monsoon brings rain and often heavy storms from April through to October, while on the east coast the most rain falls between September and December.
