Visiting Thailand in the wrong season can turn your tropical dream vacation in to a
nightmare, and after paying a fortune for the air ticket your accommodation and arranging
a long schedule, between your tours and shopping, you might be surprised by the weather man
that will spoil your vacation and make you stay at your hotel or in closed malls, and
you might be counting your days to go back home.
To avoid disappointing scenarios and make the best of your trip, in this vlog we are
going to give you an idea about the high and low seasons in Thailand, and what to expect
from each season so that you won’t be surprised once you arrive the land of smiles.
June July & August are considered low season which is among the monsoon season in Thailand,
where the weather would be humid & rainy.
In these three months visiting Thailand is not a bad idea due to many facts.
Although its monsoon season and can be rainy but not like September since you can have
many sunny days or sunny breaks even if it rains, so you can stay on schedule visit the
temples, do your street shopping’s, have your street food and enjoy the capital of
Thailand without any bad weather obstacles.
when it rains heavily you have many alternatives to escape the rain like visiting the closed
malls shopping or even watching a movie till the weather gets well again.
Many will ask what about the south like Phuket is it possible to visit the islands, yes absolutely.
You can visit the islands in the Andaman sea but there are some disadvantages and beside
In low season the prices of tours are much cheaper than high season so your saving, but
the waves in the Andaman sea are high so you can experience some rough speed boat rides
till you arrive your destined island.
For backpacker’s low season is more preferable than the high season after all they like to
save money and enjoy a lot and the hotels will give much more affordable rates.
All in all, these three months are good to save money and enjoy Thailand every time or
day the weather gives you a break.
November December and January are considered the high season in Thailand and December till
mid-January are considered the pick season for tourist where many travel to Thailand
for new year and Christmas celebrations.
The weather is dry and cool the atmosphere is great and the beaches are wonderful to
The island tours are perfect every day and the waves are so smooth so that you can barely
feel the speed boat ride.
Your schedule can go very smoothly in these months and you can enjoy almost everything
in Thailand in this season.
I guess after you heard all these you are preparing your trip to Thailand among these
Well don’t rush let me finish the vlog and decide later.
Although all these advantages we have mentioned in November December and January but what
about the prices.
Everything will be in higher rates, the hotels you may pay double rates and most of them
will be booked due to the high season.
The shopping will be so crowded and bargaining will not give you too much result like the
The night life it’s another story high prices crowded bars and walking streets, sometimes
even you cannot find a sit to drink a beer.
All in all, it is the perfect weather to be in Thailand, but beware you are paying much
higher prices for everything and it’s the most crowded time of the year so if you like
private bars or calm beaches than it’s not your season.
March April and may are the hottest season in Thailand where in April the temperature
can reach to 40 degrees.
So all in all if you like hot humid weather, this is the time and if you wanna participate
in Thai new year’s festival that held almost for 3 days which is called Songkran the water
festival, where due to the hot weather people play with watering each other, it’s a fun
time to be in Thailand.
September till Mid-October is the real heavy rainy season most of the day’s thunderstorms
monsoon winds and crazy weather.
That’s why I call these the bad season, where you will barely do a thing in Thailand
it’s the lowest season where a heavy rain can cause a bad traffic that can kill your
day and let you stay in your hotel.
After all its not recommended to experience Thailand in these months unless you like spending
most of your time in your hotel room or closed malls.
As a conclusion you can visit Thailand in high or low season and it’s up to you which
one you like but I assure you will enjoy both.
I hope this vlog was helpful for you and gave you an idea to know when is it best for you
to visit Thailand.
