Weather in Thailand

























When it comes to Thailand weather, this exotic paradise knows how to bring the heat! We're talking temperatures that shimmy between 25-35°C all year round so there’s no need to pack a puffer (extra case space, always a winner). Averages for the beachy southern peninsula are always balmy, so even in the months that have a little more cloud cover, the ocean will always feel like an inviting bath.

But, the weather in Thailand isn't just about sunshine and coconuts! This beauty has a tropical monsoon climate, meaning the rain gets to crash the party from May to October. But don't let that put a damper on your holiday plans. These showers often make a quick appearance and are usually followed by sunny skies. Plus, the lush landscapes after a good shower? Breathtaking!

Then there's the cool season from November to February, when temperatures mellow out to ever so slightly 22-28°C. Imagine meditating in a mountain temple or hiking up to hidden waterfalls in without breaking into (too much of) a sweat. Sounds idyllic, right?
