When is the Best Time to Visit Thailand?

Visiting Thailand will dramatically depend on the seasons. Thailand is near the equator and located in the tropics. It experiences only three weather types: extremely sunny, drastically rainy, and the perfect weather to visit.

There are three parts of Thailand, and these three parts, as the months go by, experience different weathers. We have Central Thailand, Northern Thailand, and Southern Thailand.

Central Thailand

There are four common tourist destinations in Central Thailand: Bangkok, Lopburi, Kanchanaburi, and Ayutthaya. The best time to visit with perfect warm-weather runs from around February to June. 

If you want to visit during the cooler seasons, you should go from October to February. You should avoid going in the rainy season from June to October.

Northern Thailand

Northern Thailand is home to Chiang Mai, Chiang Rai, and Pai, a wide range of tourist destinations. The best time to visit is from February to April where the weather is warm and comfortable.

From November to January, the cold season settles in and allows you to enjoy your vacation without worrying about humid weather. It would be best to avoid visiting Thailand from May to September, which can have heavy rains.

Southern Thailand

In Southern Thailand, the seasons vary depending on the coasts. There are two coasts: the Gulf coast and the Andaman coast. 

These coasts in Southern Thailand only have two seasons: wet and dry seasons. The Gulf coast has a dry season from January and August and has its wet season from September to December.

Avoid the Andaman coast during its wet season from April to October. You can try going there during its dry season from November to March.

Thailand’s Perfect Weather

The best time to visit Thailand for the perfect, warm weather should be from late January to early April. It will be sunny and warm, allowing you to see a wide range of tourist spots without having to worry about the rain.

If you want to visit Thailand’s beaches for some diving and surfing, it would be best to go from November to April (West Coast) or May to August (East Coast). You can also try going to the beach at Phuket Coast from November to April and the Koh Samui Coast from late December to early May.

If you want to save money and don’t mind the rainy season, you can go from May to September. Plenty of people avoid these months because of the rain, and businesses will have deals, allowing the opportune time to save money.

If you specifically want to go to Bangkok, you should go from November to March. Bangkok offers excellent deals and splendid weather during these months, so don’t miss it!
