Thailand offers a tropical and humid climate for the majority of the year, however, some parts of the country experience three seasons (inland provinces), while other parts only experience two (southern peninsula region).
The inland provinces enjoy three seasons: a cool season, a hot season, and a rainy season. The cool season generally runs from November to May, however, despite the name, the only truly “cool” temperatures occur in the northern mountain regions. Since these months are dry, they are the most popular ones for tourists. The hot season is from March to May and is characterized by intense heat and humidity as well as occasional rain. The rainy season is from May to November and is dominated by the Southwest Monsoon.
The southern peninsula region experiences two seasons, rainy and dry but they occur at different times depending on the coast. The Andaman or West Coast sees the Southwest Monsoon from April to October while the Gulf of Thailand or East Coast feels the most rain between September and December.
