When to Visit Thailand

The peak season for Tourism in Thailand is between November and April; the prices are higher at this time. Between November and February are the coolest months and the most appealing time to travel. However, if you can tolerate a downpour or two during the afternoons and 85-degree temperatures, the months of April to October will be great for visiting, since beaches are less crowded and prices for hotels and attractions are drastically reduced during these months.
