Peak ( Nov - Feb )

The weather is cool and dry after the monsoon, the beaches are sunny and packed, and the cities are booming with shopping. Over Christmas, things go into overdrive, so plan in advance. The great weather continues all over the country until February, including the hilly north (where it can get a little chilly at night).

Shoulder ( Mar - Jun , Oct )

The heat begins to build up after March, so crowds lessen and hotel availability increases. April is the month of Songkran (Thai New Year) when things get busy briefly. By May the heat is on, but tourism is still alive, availing of attractive shoulder rates. June is when things start to taper off; thundershowers can be expected all over the country. Only Koh Samui continues to enjoy sunshine. October is a good shoulder month right after the rains, and just before peak season.

Low ( Jul - Sep )

Rains hit every part of the country, from the beaches to the mountains and all over the interior. Koh Samui still sees some tourist traffic in July, which also disappears by August. September is the wettest month of the year. Tourism resumes mid-October onwards.
