Thailand is officially the Kingdom of Thailand and formerly known as Siam. Travelers can spend their trip to Thailand lying on a beach on Koh Samui, rooftop bar hopping in Bangkok, and even move around with elephants in Chiang Mai. Thailand is one of the most in-demand destinations for travelers right now. With fortunate exchange rates, an understated tourist visa policy, idyllic beaches, and world-renowned cuisine, the number of foreign visitors to the country has doubled over the past decade.
Weather in Thailand:
We could see a gloomy day in the Land of Smiles, and the time of year you visit can make or break your beach vacation. While Thailand’s rainy season typically begins after July and runs through October, it isn’t unlikely for major storms to arrive as early as May.
Best Time To Travel:
Add in the light evening breeze, and you won’t want for anything during your Thailand vacation. For beach and island goers, this is the best time to plan your trip, as the air will be less humid and the sun won’t be blistering (meaning you can actually lay out in the sun without getting drenched in sweat after just five minutes).
Not to Travel to Thailand:
If you are traveling to the country in hopes of returning home with any sort of suntan, however, avoid planning your trip between July and the end of October. That’s when monsoon season is in full.
Traveling Fare is Cheaper:
According to the airfare prediction app Hopper, the cheapest flights to Bangkok are in September and April, when travelers can find savings of up to $500. Generally, flight prices and accommodations will be cheaper during low season (between March and October), through June and early July see another spike because of summer break.
Reasons to visit Thailand:
- Street Food: The hot and sour dish can be creamed up in a second by street vendors using fresh lemongrass. Other street food treats to try to include rice with spicy stir-fried crabmeat and fresh yellow chilies.
- Pink Lakes: Pink water lilies in bloom are a sight to behold on lakes around the country. The wide lake – 15km long and up to 5km is little-known by non-Thais but is a beautiful sight. Guides lead small boat tours around it.
- Luxury Beaches: Thailand’s beach bars can be what makes a holiday, offering a multitude of options, from driftwood shacks playing Bob Marley where bar staff becomes lifelong friends to remote hippy hideaways selling psychedelic mushroom shakes and swanky places to sip cocktails and dress up for.
