and Climate in Thailand
Thailand's climate is tropical, high both in temperature and humidity,
and dominated by monsoons. April and May are the hottest months of the
year, when even the locals are moved to complain about the heat. June
sees the beginning of the South West Monsoon, and brings with it the rainy
season, which continues intermittently until the end of October.
From November to the end of February the climate is much less trying with
a cooling North East breeze and a reduction in the humidity level. This
is also the main tourist season, and the best time to visit Thailand.
The north and north-east
are generally cooler than Bangkok in winter, and hotter in summer. In
the far north, around Mae Hong Son temperatures can occasionally drop
as low as 2 degree Celcius.
For the Western visitor there is no such thing as "cool". Just
cooler than "hot" and "drier than humid", so light
cotton clothing is the order of the day. Don't worry about bringing too
much clothing with you, as almost everything can be purchased locally,
at a fraction of the price you will pay at home. Do remember that the
tropical sun can be quite fierce so a hat is useful, and don't forget
to use a good sun screen.
