Thailand: Weather & when to go: June

June Overview

June is known to be one of the more wet months in Thailand. Rains are a common occurrence throughout the country and temperatures still hover in the low 30s. While the rains are almost a guarantee, they still only come in short-lived bursts, which leaves plenty of time for sightseeing and exploring.

In the north, the rains bring back the lush, verdant landscapes which dried up with the hotter parts of the year. While this can make for some great trekking experiences, conditions are guaranteed to be a bit muddy (particularly in the Golden Triangle area), which can prove messy for some travellers. Further south (Bangkok and surrounding), conditions are quite similar with more steady rainfall throughout the region.

In the southern parts of the country, weather patterns are warm and wet from Khao Sok all the way to Phuket and Krabi. Rain is a common theme and beach weather can be a bit iffy during this time. On the same note, the farther Gulf islands of Koh Chang and Koh Kood experience similar rains. Luckily, the inner Gulf escapes of Koh Samui, Koh Phangan, Hua Hin and Cha Am offer plenty of beautiful, rain-free days which prove ideal for travellers still seeking a bit of sun and sand. For clear diving experiences, the waters around Koh Tao are ideal during this time.
