What is the best time of year to visit Thailand?
Due to the tropical monsoon, Thailand is clearly divided into three seasons throughout the year: March to May, when the temperature is the highest, averaging 89 - 100℉(32 - 38°C), is called the "hot season" and the air is dry. During the rainy season, the average monthly temperature is maintained at around 80 - 82℉(27-28℃). After the rainy season, Thailand has the best season of the year, the "cool season", which is from November to February, with an average temperature of 66 - 79℉(19 - 26℃). Although it is called "cool season", the temperature is not low.
For seniors, the cool season is undoubtedly the best season to travel. If you need to travel to Thailand during the hot season, summer dress is recommended. You will need a spare jacket and long pants because many of the attractions in Thailand are Buddhist-related and you must wear long pants to enter, and there is a big temperature difference between indoor and outdoor. Also a special reminder, don't forget to bring sunscreen hats and sunglasses to protect yourself from the sun during this period.
