Thailand

Weather to go

Cool season in Thailand ranges from November to February, making it the best time to visit, as the dry climate is preferable to the humidity and heat common to the mid-year months. Times to avoid include April, the hottest month of the year, and from July to October, which is monsoon season. Humidity during this time averages 90% and flooding is common.
