Best time to visit in Thailand

Being the most popular tourist destination in all of Southeast Asia, visitors can find almost anything they seek inland. The tourism industry is in fact the largest economic contributor of the kingdom of Thailand.

The tropical weather pattern prevalent throughout the island is one of the biggest contributing factors for such a gathering. But according to many tourist gurus and websites, the best time of year to visit Thailand is actually from November to February. The cooler weather is very favorable. But this season is also the busiest throughout the whole year.

While you may have to plan your vacation well ahead of time, and may have to incur the hundreds of other visitors, you will not regret celebrating the various festivals of the season. This includes Loi Krathong and Lopburi Monkey banquet.

The March to May season has the lowest rates throughout the year.  But one might have to pay a harsher price in terms of warmer weather and higher humidity levels. But if you are the fun seeking type, the mid-April festival of Songkran is for you.
