Climate (Thailand)

We recommend you check weather conditions before you depart. The region generally has a tropical climate with monsoon rains for part of the year. However, the word ‘monsoon’ should not deter you – travelling during the monsoon can be the most rewarding, with lower tourist numbers and lush growth of the landscape. Usually the monsoon involves a downpour late in the day, which is heavy but short lived. Freak weather conditions could result in delays, changes or in rare cases, cancellations to sections of your itinerary.

Thailand’s climate is tropical and humid for the majority of the country during most of the year. The southern region of Thailand really has only two seasons – the wet and the dry. These seasons do not run at the same time on both the east and west side of the peninsular. In northern Thailand the seasons are clearly defined.
