CLIMATE

Thailand is generally very hot and humid with distinct dry and rainy seasons. The best time to visit most resorts is between November and March when there is less rain, it is not as humid and temperatures are cooler. Koh Samui is best visited from December to August.

With miles of sun drenched tropical beach paradises, tantalising cuisine and the exhilarating metropolis of Bangkok, Thailand holidays have something to offer everyone. Renowned for the hospitality of its people, the ‘Land of Smiles’ is a country to which you will want to return to.
