Climate: Thailand has a tropical climate, divided into three distinct seasons. In the period from March to May, it is very hot. This is followed by the monsoon season which extends from June to September. The period between October and February is cooler.
Best time to travel: The coolest period is between October and February. During this period the rain is infrequent and is therefore generally seen as the best time to travel. Between May and July rain showers can fall, but dry periods prevail. Travelling during this time is pleasant as nature is lush and there are not as many tourists at famous sites.
