This is the best time of the year to visit Thailand
Posted on March 04 2023,
Thailand is probably one of my favorite destinations in the entire world.
This country has a lot to offer and each time we go there we make a great effort to visit different places and fill ourselves with its exquisite culture. Thai people will always make you feel welcome and share with you everything about their heritage.
Whether you're looking to spend some nights soaking up the nightlife in Bangkok or relaxing at the beach in Koh Samui, Thailand has a perfect plan for anyone.
The best time to visit Thailand is usually between November and April when the weather is warm and the skies are clear. During other months, the weather can be hot and humid, and the landscape can be quite dry.
However, there are other times of the year that are just as good. If you want to avoid the tourist rush, summer may not be the best time to visit Thailand, but autumn and winter are both excellent times to visit.
The past July we had the chance to go there and here are a few activities we made:
On our first day in Bangkok, we had lunch at Kay’s on 49 in the Thong Lor neighborhood at a beautiful little café restaurant with a friend Mana an Indian Shiek whose family has lived in Thailand for 40 years. After an excellent lunch, we went on a long walk to see all the retail options in various shopping malls throughout the city.
Next, we went to Chang Mai for 2 days. We stayed at Anantara Resort Hotel, a little outside the old city on the river. We took Thai Compression massages and for 60 baht a cab can drive you to the old city. It was time to go to Wat Phra Singh Woramahawihan, the Golden Temple, and then we walked to Kalm Village-Chang Mai where you can do some shopping, find home goods, and a very beautiful cafe with wonderful handmade items.
After this, we had a 5-day stay at the Absolute Sanctuary in Koh Samui, the only wellness resort in Asia. Since it was the summer low season, we received a 40% discount on our hotel stay.
The Absolute Sanctuary resort was a reset for us, and we spent the 5 days really focusing on our health and well-being. We had the unlimited yoga and Pilates package. We booked an assortment of massages and wellness treatments.
It’s never too early to start planning your summer vacation. Whether you are looking for a relaxing holiday or an adventure-packed journey, Thailand is the perfect country to visit.
With its beautiful scenery and friendly people, it will be an unforgettable experience.
