Weather and Climate

Q: What is the best time to visit Thailand?
A:

The best time to travel to Thailand is when the weather is cooler during mid-October to early March. It's OK to visit Thailand during the off-season too as the temperature is generally moderate throughout this period and there are always lots of festivals and activities all-year-round.

Q: When is the monsoon season, and what are the other seasons in Thailand?
A:
Roughly divided, there are three seasons: the cool season (November to February), the hot season (April to May), and the rainy season (June to October). Average temperatures are about 29° C, ranging in Bangkok from 35° C in April to 17° C in December.

Q: Do different regions in Thailand have different climates?
A:
Thailand is about 1,000 km (620 miles) to the south of the Tropic of Cancer, within the tropical monsoon zone of Southeast Asia. Thailand's climate is consequently warm and mild throughout the year, though there are slight differences in each particular region. The northern region can be a bit cooler during the cool season, so visitors are advised to pack a sweater or light jacket at this time. Closer to the equator, the southern peninsula of Thailand has little seasonal variation in climate.
