Thailand: Weather & when to go: November

November Overview

The transitions of October lead into November, which marks the end of the wet season in Thailand. Dry conditions slowly start returning, humidity is at a low and temperatures are all the more bearable.

For those seeking to visit the northern parts of Thailand, November is an ideal time to visit. In Chiang Rai, Chiang Mai and the Golden Triangle area, the rains have left behind lush landscapes which make for some beautiful touring. Temperatures are at an enjoyable low and outdoor activities are back on the menu again. In central Thailand, conditions are quite similar, which make visiting Bangkok and Kanchanaburi exceptionally enjoyable.

November also marks a great change for some beach destinations of Thailand, with the months of rain slowly fading away. Koh Chang, Koh Kood, Hua Hin, Cha Am, Phuket and Krabi all offer some of the region’s best weather, with little rain and temperatures hovering around the high 20s. On the other hand, the Gulf-side destinations of Koh Samui and Koh Phangan are in the middle of their wet season, and are best avoided during this time.
