Best Time in Thailand: When to Visit

Due to the influence of the monsoon, Thailand's weather is divided into three periods: cool, hot, and rainy. The dry season starts from November to December. March to May is during the hot season. The rainy season in Thailand is from June to October. However, it won't rain all day during the rainy season.

The cool and dry season from November to March is the best time to visit Thailand. It is the best time to visit Northern Thailand like Chiang Mai and Chiang Rai, and central Thailand like Bangkok and Ayutthaya. For the southeast coast, it is best to visit Koh Samui, Koh Phan Ngan, and Koh Tao from December to April. 


Must-Do's in Thailand

  • Go Shopping in Bangkok

    Built along the Mekong River, Bangkok is Thailand's largest and most prosperous city, filled with skyscrapers, shopping malls, and commercial centers. Walk into a mall like Siam Paragon or Central World, and they can satisfy most of your shopping, especially precious gold and jewelry. You can also find various unexpected small items for gifts or souvenirs at the street markets, such as Chatuchak Weekend Market.

  • Visit Chiang Mai

    Chiang Mai is a modern city that is second only to Bangkok in Thailand but also a city with a more profound historical and cultural heritage. Many evocative temples were left in the basin after the government of the Lanna Kingdom, such as Wat Chedi Luang Varavihara, a vast temple used to offer the body's ashes. Benefiting from its high altitude, this inland city has a cool climate favorable to rose growth. This is why the parade of floats in February is always exciting - an ancient city with vivid roses, just like this land and its people.

  • Lie Down on Phuket's White-Sand Beach

    As a coastal country, Thailand has a very long coastline of more than 3200 kilometers with an abundance of sandy beaches. The beaches of Phuket are the most famous. Unlike most common beaches, the gravel on Phuket's beaches is much finer and whiter in color, which makes the water look clearer and brighter. In addition, Phuket is also rich in fruits such as coconuts and pineapples. Lying on the beach and enjoying the fruit, the best activity is no activity.
