When is the best time to fly to Thailand?
Thailand is one of those countries that’s beautiful to see every month of the year. But you may want to know about its three seasons; hot, cool and monsoon. Between November to April are the months where hot weather is likely. From April and May monsoon season begins, so do be aware that you may experience more rainy days than beach days on your travels.
Thailand’s events calendar is also pretty great, so if you’re wondering when to visit, this may be an easy way to decide. April marks the New Year in Thailand, so for Songkran you’ll see locals and tourists donning buckets and water pistols for a country wise water fight. Or head to Chiang Mai in November for Loi Krathong (lantern festival).
