Where to go during the rainy season

Recommended Posts

Looking for suggestions to go in places in Thailand, or South East Asia  during the rainy season. Have about a month and half before I go back to work. In Koh Chang now, where it has been rainy everyday 95 percent of the time. Looking for somewhere there is maybe 1 to 2 hours of dry weather, or even sun per day, or ever other day.

The rainy season (about May-October) is the best time to see Northern Thailand. Rains are very short and often just one a day so not a bother. And each rain cools and freshens the air and makes the scenery lush green with fog.

 

Do you mean "lush green with fog"  or "lush green with frogs" ? , 😂

There is no single rainy season throughout SE Asia.  Even in Thailand it differs between south and north.

Some "official" ones for popular destinations are:

Bali: December - February

Malaysia: October - December (Peninsular), October - February (East Malaysia)

Singapore: November - December, but will often get some rain all year around

Bangkok: June - October

Chiang Mai: May - October

Koh Samui: October - December

Phuket: May - October

South Vietnam: May - September

Central Vietnam: June - July and September - November (Da Nang), October - December (Hoi An, Nha Trang, Hue)

North Vietnam: May - November

 

Of course, some wet seasons may be dry at times, and some dry seasons wet, but the periods given above have the most likelihood of there being heavy, frequent rain.

Pattaya is one of the driest places in Thailand. Rain here rarely lasts more than an hour.

yes, but you have to put up with the dirty hovel.  Not a good plan.

As I used to say to my kids when we lived in Scotland, "to enjoy this place you have to consider the weather is irrelevant to any plans you wish to make".  Even in Thailand, it rarely rains all day ( not so in Scotland of course), so any one place is a good as another.

Ditto for Pukhet,Samui

 

Weatherbase.com should offer a good guidance to the OP

Stayed in Pranburi at a beachside resort a couple of weeks ago.  Had a little rain each day but not bad.  And I did not see a single piece of trash on the beach, amazing!  (It must all blow over to the Chonburi/Rayong side.)

Come to Isan. No rain in our parts for the last 4 weeks. Thunderstorms in other parts may last an hour or so.
