The best time of year to visit this amazing country

The best time to visit Thailand is between November and April if you wish to avoid the monsoon seasons! However, there are some parts of the country which have great weather all year round!

How Long to visit Thailand?

Obviously, this depends on how long you have and how much you want to see! I would recommend 1 Month minimum but you could easily stay a lot longer and travel for months! There is so much to see in so many different parts of the country!

Bangkok and Chiang Mai are north of the Island and visitors usually spend a week at each then head down to the Islands in the south Koh Samui, Koh Tao and Koh Phangan spending a few days between the few. Bare in mind that travel takes between 4 hours to full day if traveling by boat or bus, however if you fly you can cut down on travel times!
