Please select your location:

Although the climate varies throughout Thailand, you can visit all year round. The best time to travel is during the cool and dry season between November and early April. In the south, the climate differs between the eastern and western coasts. The west coast is more favorable during the winter months, when diving and snorkeling will be at its best. The weather on the east coast is good for most of the year, with the lowest rainfall in January and February and the highest in November.

Thailand is another country with a distinct east versus west climate. The pick for us is either November, for the beautiful west coast beaches, or June, for beating the crowds and enjoying some of the country's cultural highlights with great weather.

Visiting Thailand in September

September is usually the wettest month of the year, so it's not ideal for beach goers. However, those seeking a low season bargain and no crowds can still enjoy a worthwhile exploration at this time of year.
