Bookmark and Share

The Thailand climate is controlled by tropical monsoons. The majority of the country can be described as hot and humid during most of the year with annual temperature of 28°C. The weather in central, northern, and northeastern Thailand is determined by three seasons. Meanwhile, the southern, coastal regions of Thailand feature only two - rainy season and dry season.

The hot season occurs from March to May when the temperatures can be up to 40 C (105 F) on the hottest days, and at night the humidity rises. Sometime between late June to late July, evening downpours start to come.

The cool season lasts from November to February. Daytime high temperatures are between 30 -35 C (85-95 F) and humidity between 50% - 60%. Every day is a sunny day. This is the season to travel around Thailand.

The rainy season starts from June until October during which time rainfall in most of Thailand is at its heaviest.

On the Andaman or west coast, where Phuket, Krabi, and the Phi Phi Islands lie, the southwest monsoon brings heavy storms from April to October, while on the Gulf of Thailand or east coast, where Koh Samui, Koh Phangan, and Koh Tao lie, the most rain falls between September and December

Overall the southern parts of Thailand get the most rain with around 2,400 millimeters every year while the central and northern regions of Thailand get around 1,400 millimeters.
