For many people visiting Thailand, the weather is a major consideration in deciding where and when to go. To help you plan your trip to Thailand, you can find a month by month breakdown below which provides details on the weather you can expect in different regions of the country together with details of local events and festivals to look out for.
The monthly guides below give you an idea of the average weather patterns, but the weather for any given day or week can’t be guaranteed. Different weather patterns apply to different parts of the country and unseasonal rain can occur during the summer months just as days with no rain can occur during the rainy season months.
If you are looking for the best time to visit Thailand, it will depend on what is most important to you on your trip. If you simply want to laze on a beach or relax by the pool, the cool season months (November-February) might be perfect. April can be hot and sultry, but is also when you can experience one of the most exuberant festivals to be found anywhere in the world as Thailand celebrates Songkran the Thai New Year Water Festival. And don’t dismiss the idea of visiting during the rainy or green season months (June-October) when you can still see plenty of sunshine and blue skies. If you want to explore the countryside or experience Thailand away from the main tourist areas, the green season months can be a wonderful time to visit. There are also financial advantages to visiting Thailand in the low season months when the price of flights and accommodation can be lower.
