Thailand Travel Guide

There’s something special about Thailand, and the magic of this Southeast Asian nation can only be experienced first hand – the inviting, friendly atmosphere will have you mesmerized within moments. Your first pad thai (not from your local takeaway shop) will please your taste buds, and your first tuk-tuk ride may frighten you – but it’s all part of the grand adventure that is Thailand.

  1. Peak Season

    November to March

    Most of the country enjoys a dry season from December through March, making it an ideal time to travel. Due to the timing of Western Christmas and New Year’s Eve, Thailand will be incredibly busy over this period, meaning accommodation will be more expensive and likely to be booked out in advance. Temperatures will reach an average high of 35°C in Bangkok and surrounding areas. Notable festivals include the Chiang Mai Flower Festival in February along with monthly Full Moon parties.

  2. Low Season

    July to October

    While Thailand boasts consistently warm temperatures year round, it does suffer from monsoons that occur, in short, intense bursts and may cause some islands to shut down. Visitors travelling to Thailand during this time will enjoy fewer crowds and might benefit from lower flight or hotel prices. During the low season, you can enjoy the Ubon Ratchathani Khao Phansa celebrations in addition to smaller festivals across the country.
