Thailand - land of smiles

Climate in Thailand is dominated by tropical monsoons and the weather in Thailand is largely hot and humid across most of the country during the whole year. While Thailand’s seasons are completely divided into the hot season, cool season, and rainy season, in existence it’s approximately hot most of the year. The weather in central, northern, and northeastern Thailand is also known by three seasons, although the southern, coastal regions of Thailand feature only two, making the weather in Thailand easy to understand.

The seasons In Thailand’s domestic provinces are clearly described: Between November and May the weather is mostly dry and the cool season and hot season occur from November to February and March to May.

The other domestic season, the rainy season, beginning from May to November and is influence by the southwest monsoon, during which time rainfall in most of Thailand is at its heaviest.

The coastal region of Thailand in the southern really has only two seasons – rainy season and dry season. Luckily, for those planning a beach holiday, Thailand’s two coasts have a little different rainy seasons, allowing visitors to find sunny beaches nearly year round.

On the west coast the Andaman, where Phuket, Krabi, and the Phi Phi Islands lie, the southwest monsoon brings massive storms from April to October, while on the Gulf of Thailand or east coast, where Koh Samui, Koh Phangan, and Koh Tao lie, the heavy rain falls between September and December.
