Travel time & weather Thailand
Between November and May is the best time to travel in Thailand. That is the general opinion. The "best" time to travel because between these months is the "cooler" winter in Thailand.

For Europeans, the weather in Thailand feels very hot as soon as you are not near the sea. Sweating is part of everyday life in cities like Bangkok or Pattaya. Near the beach, for example on Patong beach or on the beach in Koh Samui, it is "pleasantly hot" as long as you are in the shade. In the big cities only air conditioners help, they are quite normal in every shop, kiosk and restaurant. [Note: A hotel room without air conditioning is rare and also not advisable]. You never hear complaints about the weather. The most annoying thing can be many rainy days in a row. Even when it rains, it is still pleasantly warm. You really only need long clothes in Thailand for the north, such as Chiang Mai, especially in the evening, and in the rest of the country mostly only because the air-conditioning in buses and shopping centres is set far too cold.
Rainy season June - October:
Rain is particularly frequent in the south at this time:
Phuket, Khao Lak, Koh Phi Phi, Koh Lanta, Koh Lipe, Krabi,Trang .
October, November, December and January
are more pleasant because it can rain from time to time and it can also be a bit windy. If it rains only briefly, there is no sign of it 1 hour later. But it is pleasantly refreshing. Of course, pensioners in particular prefer the more pleasant air. For active tourists, a little shade from some clouds is also pleasant, be it for sports on the beach or long tours to viewing platforms or even long hikes to tourist attractions. This is the most popular time to travel, it is high season. The weather is perfectly tropical for tourists.

How often and for how long it rains varies a lot and especially in winter it sometimes rains the whole afternoon. Dont worry, its still shorts and swimming trunks weather. But a day at the beach would not be so thrilling then. That could take some of the fun out of a typical beach holiday.

February to May

Temperatures can reach 40 degrees Celsius during the day and almost never drop below 30 degrees Celsius at night.
November to the end of January is also the most expensive time to travel in Thailand. This is the high season in Thailand. Most tourists are in Thailand over Christmas and New Year. A hotel that costs 23€ per night all year increases its prices to about 33€/night in the high season. So this is a plus for travelling from February onwards. The season from February onwards is the hottest in Thailand. Temperatures up to 40 degrees Celsius are not uncommon. Therefore best suited for days by the sea. Less so for strenuous tours and hikes. The weather is great for seaside holidaymakers, but long-term tourists and pensioners look forward to the cooler months from October to January.
Rain
Especially between August and October, it rains most often throughout the country. This is less bad, but it can also rain every day. Which makes going to the beach less fun. If you are in Koh Samui and cant go to the beach, it is a bit annoying.
Bargain
The lowest prices for hotels and flights are available from June to the end of August.
Here, the prices of the "low season" apply. The designations are quite official. Hotel price lists are always based on this. So until October, the cheaper prices of the low season apply.
General climate
The tropical climate in Thailand can be divided into three regions and two climate zones. The average temperatures are aThe tropical climate in Thailand can be divided into three regions and two climate zones. The average temperature is 30 degrees Celsius.
