The stunning viewpoints, the pristine beaches, and the mountains are just some of the things Thailand is famous for. But do you know when is the best time to visit Thailand? Here’s a guide on what you can do when you are planning to visit Thailand.

Cool Season

The best time to travel to Thailand is doubtlessly the cool season. Generally running from November through February, our cool season will still feel hot to most visitors. However, the northern hills of Chiang Mai and Chiang Rai can get quite cold especially early in the morning and late at night. 

So, small a light jacket on your next trip to Northern Thailand is a must. Additionally, the atmosphere can be absolutely stunning during this season. With the mist floating over the mountainscape and beautiful tea plantations, It’s definitely a perfect breakfast scenery.

However, the cool season in Thailand overlaps with the high season. As a result, you have to pay more money for traveling in Thailand at its best climate. Nonetheless, it’s also a great time to visit the stunning beaches of Krabi and Phuket down south. 

With the sun being cold in the winter, and the seas remaining calm enough to island-hop without getting seasick, it’s always a good idea to visit the southern sea at this time.

Hot Season

As the name suggests, the hot season is super hot. Running from March through June, hot season in Bangkok can see the average temperature rising into the 30s Celsius and even reaching into the 40s. 

The humidity can reach ridiculously high levels on top of the scorching heat. While you can still explore the fascinating temples of Bangkok, prepare to face yourself against the Southeast Asian sun.

We recommend those visiting in the hot season to head to the beaches. To spend time at one of Thailand’s incredible beaches is the best way to beat the heat. Whether it be in Phuket or Krabi on the Andaman Coasts or Koh Lan or Koh Samui on the Gulf Coast, these places can offer you respite. Enjoy the clear blue water, and go snorkeling to see sea life.

Rainy Season

The rainy season in Thailand starts from early June through October. As its name suggests, It constantly rains during the season. However, the rainy season is considered as the low season so the hotel price is much lower during the rainy season. Let’s take this chance of getting the best hotel discounts to save your money.

We advise you to stay indoors because of the rain. You can go to art galleries, museums, and coffee shops in Bangkok. If you still want to go out, go to the Bua Tong Sticky Waterfalls in Chiangmai. There will be more water for you to enjoy swimming during the rainy season.
