Thailand

Fascinating culture and art, gorgeous architecture, glorious beaches, five-star hotels and resorts, scintillating nightlife and some of the finest cuisine in Asia - Thailand has it all. Thailand is often called "The Land of Smiles" because the mostly Buddhist people are extremely affable and hospitable. The Kingdom of Thailand, formerly known as Siam, was one of the few Asian countries that was not colonized by the West. As such, its rich culture is largely free of European influence. Thailand is quite modern, relative to some of its neighbors (particularly in cosmopolitan Bangkok), and is one of Southeast Asia's economic powerhouses, with first-rate hospitals and other international-level facilities.

Weather in Thailand

The best time to visit Thailand is from November to March, when rainy season has ended and before temperatures rise significantly.

  • The weather in Thailand is hot and humid for the most part.
  • There are three seasons: November to February, which is the “cool” season, with temperatures of around 70°F to 80°F (21°C to 27°C), lower humidity, and sunny skies. In the north at this time of year, nights will be chilly, and you will need a sweater. March through May is the hot season in which temperatures can rise above 100°F (38°C), and it can be very hazy.
  • From June to September is the rainy season, with temperatures ranging between 70°F to 80°F (21°C to 27°C), high humidity, and heavier rainfall.
  • The south sees heavier rain than the north, and the Andaman Sea has drier and better conditions in the early part of the winter than the Gulf of Thailand.
