Thailand Climate

Thailand remains one of the best value year round travel destinations, and much of its appeal comes from its climate. No matter what time of the year, it is always warm in Thailand, making beach vacations an option the entire year round.

 

Thailand may be a fairly small country, yet its weather changes significantly from the North, to the South and also over to the East. Although each area of Thailand does have the same three seasons (cold, hot and wet seasons), each area usually has them at slightly different times, and with quite startling differences in some cases.

 

Cold season runs from around November through to March. Hot season lasts from March to June and wet season runs from June to October. However, these seasons can and do drift by several weeks.

 

The Climate of Northern Thailand

If you are looking for a cheap holiday destination, with plenty to see and do, but do not like extremely hot weather, then the North of Thailand is for you. Northern Thailand is the coolest part. This is mainly due to the fact it is surrounded on three sides by the mountains of Myanmar (Burma) and Laos. Indeed, most of Northern Thailand is mountainous itself. In the cold season it can drop as low as 2c at night (rarely), and stays a perfectly acceptable 15c average in the daytime. In the hot season, whilst the rest of Thailand can hit the high 40s on a bad day, Northern Thailand seldom climbs above 35c. In the rainy season, the fact that Northern Thailand is so hilly means it does not suffer from extreme flooding like the rest of Thailand, temperatures in the wet season average around 30c depending upon cloud cover.

 

The Climate of Central and Eastern Thailand

The area of central Thailand around Bangkok, and to the East through Isan over to the Mekong River which forms the Laos border, is generally far warmer than Northern Thailand. Cold season sees a night time temperature of around 12c, with a daytime temperature of low to mid 20s. Hot season is hot! Bangkok can often hit 40c by mid-morning during the hottest part of the year. Further East the temperature is similar. Rainy season is problematic, due to this part of Thailand being so flat, most years there is extensive flooding. Temperatures in the rainy season are low to mid 30s.

 

The Climate of Southern Thailand

With the Andaman Ocean on one side and the Gulf of Thailand on the other, the key word when discussing Southern Thailand climate is humidity. In cold season, temperatures hang around 20c in the daytime, and humidity is at its lowest. This is the time of year you grab your holiday to Koh Samui or Phuket, this is the best time of year in the South. Hot season is similar to Central Thailand, high 30s to low 40s. Have you ever wondered what an open air sauna would be like? Then visit Southern Thailand in the wet season. 35c temperature combined with a level of humidity that sees you sweating whilst you towel yourself dry after a shower. That’s if you are not currently swimming due to your resort being flooded. Southern Thailand’s floods are infamous during the wet season.Thailand Climate
