When is the best time to visit Thailand?

With two long coastlines and a generous helping of mountains in the north, Thailand is a wonderful destination all year round. If you want to avoid the rain and look for guaranteed sun then avoid the raining season from June to early October. Similarly, if you are looking to avoid the crowds then the best time to visit Thailand is February to March, just after the high season when their is little rain and hot weather of summer is yet to come. 

The best time to visit Bangkok, Phuket, Krabi and the north of Thailand is between late-October and February; Thailand’s winter season. During this season, the temperatures are cooler and there is no rain. Blue cloudless skies and lush green vegetation awaits across the central, northern and Andaman region, and daily temperatures are around 28°c.  Bangkok is hot all year round, with average temperatures between 27- 37°c, and a rainy season from late-May until September. During the rainy season, humidity and temperatures are higher, but it’s still easy to travel through Thailand. Usually, there is rain for only 2-3 hours a day, and the rest of the time you are free to explore without the high season crowds.

Along the coast of the Andaman Sea, Phuket and Krabi have their dry season from November until February, with heavy monsoon rains starting in May and lasting until October. The shoulder season of March and April can get very hot and humid along the Andaman coast. The Gulf of Thailand has an opposite weather pattern, with the best time to visit Koh Samui being between February and May. Koh Samui has two months of heavy rainfall in October and November.
