You know where you want to go, but do you know when? Check out our guide below, and remember: Seasons come and go, but you can always #ChaiyoWithLEO ?
Quick note: It may vary every year, but the following is a pretty good rule of thumb. Choose wisely. Have fun.
THE HOT SEASON (March–May)
Sunnies on, fruits out ? It’s the summer of your dreams, topped off with the famous Songkran spirit throughout April. It’s all fun and games… Until the heat intensifies by the day. ?
Fair warning: Thailand can get seriously hot around this time.
? Koh Phangan
? Koh Tao
⛈ THE MONSOON SEASON (June–October) ⛈
Ah, heavy rain and rough seas... Sounds like a plan if all you wanna do is get non-stop Thai massage and pig out on Thai food. ?
The country is usually less crowded, but the catch is you always have to carry a sturdy umbrella and a rain coat. So much for that tropical look you planned.?
? THE COOL SEASON (November–February) ?
Enjoy a sunny day out minus the drippin’ sweat. It can get pretty chilly (based on tropical standards at least). There might even be a week or two when you have to cover up due to a cold snap.
This season seems to draw in a lot of—if not the most—visitors. While we won’t blame you for choosing to go during this time, a trip to Thailand is not quite the same without battling against the heat while exploring. Just sayin’ ?
