Travel Guides & Information
For the perfect sand and adventure holiday, it pays to see what each month has to offer and how to pick the perfect time for your trip, Thailand is a land of luxury tropical escapes, a place where sea and land are both stunning and part of every beach lover's bucket list. There's much to see and do in Thailand at any time of the year, as places like Bangkok are always vibrant no matter the weather.
Weather-wise, the best time to visit Thailand is from December to February, during the cool season. There's little rain, the humidity goes down and temperatures are in the upper 20s, rather than the usual mid-30s. You will have to deal with tourists, however, as this is the Europeans' favorite time to visit Thailand.
Best Month to Visit Thailand
December offers the best of everything in Thailand. Temperatures are slightly cooler (in the high 20s Celsius), it doesn't rain much, and the weather on the Phuket Coast is perfect for diving and snorkeling. December is also a great time to visit Chiang Mai in the north, especially if you're looking for cooler weather to hike the mountains and explore the rainforest. This is also a great time for kayaking and island hopping, and the last month where you can catch sight of dolphins feeding off the coast of Bangkok.
December can be expensive around Christmas time, as many Europeans head to the islands to escape the snow. Expect bigger crowds and higher prices between November and February.
If you want to save money but still get good beach weather, try March. April is the hottest month of the year, so temperatures in March are already starting to peak, which means heavy discounts on flights and accommodations, and fewer people to share the beach and hotel pool with.
Krabi's best time to visit extends from November to March, so you'll catch the end of the good weather before the rains arrive in April–perfect for windsurfing and snorkeling.
