The Weather Forecast When Planning Chiang Mai Tours

The Weather Forecast When Planning Chiang Mai Tours


Andrew Mulvaney

Chaing Mai tours have risen in popularity greatly over the past couple of decades. It s not hard to see why: the north of Thailand offers a tropical paradise at a very reasonable rate. Travellers from both Europe and Australia are particularly fond of the area and this has led to large ex-pat communities. For good or bad, this atmosphere means that many people who might shy-away from foreign holidays are drawn to this area in particular. If you are travelling to northern Thailand then you should bear in mind that the weather during your trip will vary enormously depending on the season. Here is a brief overview:

When to travel?

The northwestern part of Thailand is subject to three very distinct seasons, and those travelling to the area should be very mindful of this. You ll want to pack quite different items depending on what the weather is likely to treat you to.

The Cool Season:

runs from November to March and offers lovely warm days and evenings that are just cool enough to need a light coat or a long-sleeved top. If you find yourself occupying the higher altitudes in the region, then you ll want to have something a little warmer in your bag. The average temperature around this time of the year is 21 , although visitors on Chiang Mai tours should be aware that this temperature drops dramatically at night. Locals suggest that the coolest months, by some distance, are usually December and January.

The Hot Season:

next in line is the hottest part of the year, where April and May, especially, can be uncomfortably hot for people who aren t used to the climate that is found in this part of the world. The afternoons will be the most extreme part of the day in temperature terms, with most tourists on Chiang Mai tours preferring to stay indoors to seek shelter from the worst excesses of the day s heat. The nights are still reasonably cool, however, and the afternoons are an ideal time to embark upon some sightseeing.

The Rainy Season:

If you like rain, you ll love taking Chiang Mai tours in the period from June to the middle of October. It has to be admitted, however, that the days during this season aren t actually marked by constant deluge; in fact, many people enjoy the blend of tropical rain and bright sunshine. This swing between wet and dry weather helps to turn the countryside into a seas of verdant green and brings about the arrival of a carpet of beautiful tropical flowers.
