When is the best time to visit Thailand

25/02/2015

Visiting Thailand? Remember to take the weather into account

Let's cut to the chase and let you know that the very best time to visit Thailand is between November and February. This is the cool season, although, cool doesn't mean cool in any western sense! The days may still reach in excess of 30 degrees and will be very humid.

Thai Seasons

There are three seasons in Thailand. The monsoon season runs roughly from May to October and the hot season March through to May. However, the monsoon season doesn't mean that it rains continually. There will, typically, be rain every day for a few hours in the afternoon or evening. The hot season is hot with daily temperature rising to in excess of 35 degrees. Best to hit the beach if you are going then! The weather in Thailand can be described as hot, hotter, and extremely hot!

Thai Seasonal Festivals

Seasonal festivals may also influence your decision about when to travel. The Thai-Chinese community celebrate Chinese New Year, which occurs around the end of February each year although the date does vary. Also the traditional Thai New Year is celebrated on 12th April. This is a water festival and much water is sprayed and thrown about all over the country! It is known as Songkran.

Backpacking Thailand

If you are taking in Thailand as part of a backpacking holiday remember to make sure you are fully covered by a comprehensive backpacking travel insurance policy. We also recommend a pacsafe. This is a stainless steel mesh cover for your backpack which can be locked to a nearby post to make sure it isn't stolen. It will add a little weight but might be worth it for the peace of mind!
