When To Come
Should you visit Thailand during the rainy season?
The answer is, maybe surprisingly, a qualified ‘yes’. There are large benefits in visiting during the rainy season:
- Hotel prices will be less than half the high season prices.
- Beaches and other tourist attractions that are over-crowded in high season will be pleasantly deserted.
Two or three times each year a huge storm will blow in and it will rain solidly for days at a time. For the rest of the rainy season the periods of rain are short, generally lasting not more than an hour, and are swiftly followed by blue skies and blazing sunshine. If you have been unlucky enough to have booked a short holiday and one of these storms blows in, your holiday will be washed out.
So, if you are coming in the rainy season, don’t come for just a week, as if you do your holiday may be ruined by rainfall. Coming for more than a week, however, is a thoroughly good idea if you avoid the wettest month of May, as you will have the pick of the best resorts, and the run of the best beach and other attractions.
