Countries in the Rainy Season: Thailand, Vietnam, Laos, Myanmar, Cambodia, and the Philippines

June brings heavy tropical downpours to Thailand, Vietnam, Laos, Myanmar, Cambodia, and the Philippines. Early June tends to see less rainfall compared to later in the month and temperatures cool on average by the end of June (though the sunny periods in between the downpours are in fact hotter).

Due to the rain, this season offers a quieter travel experience and more potential for budget-friendly prices.

5. Thailand

As the driest month of the summer wet season (May to October), there is only moderate rain in June on about 1 in 2 days. Phuket experiences the highest precipitation, while Bangkok and Chiang Mai have the least. Therefore, traveling in June, you're advised to focus on the central and northern regions.

Bangkok, Chiang Mai, and Chiang Rai are highly recommended. Beyond their splendid temples, you could indulge in a foodie adventure and floating markets in Bangkok, take part in a friendly elephant sanctuary in Chiang Mai, and trek through a Karen Long Neck hill tribe's village.

If you're looking for a picture-perfect beach vacation, Bali in Indonesia is the best alternative to Phuket in Southeast Asia. Also quieter, more-exclusive Koh Samui on the opposite coast in Thailand has similarly moderate rainfall and temperatures.

Costs and Crowding in June

June is in the low season for most Southeast Asian countries (the northern ones). While heavy afternoon showers are likely be encountered, the budget-friendly and less crowded vacation experience is worth considering.

However, in June, Indonesia, Malaysia, and Singapore experience different weather patterns and slightly drier or much drier days. June is one of the best times to bask in Bali's dry season. With favorable weather, it's advisable to make reservations in advance and prepare for crowds in such destinations.

What to Pack in June

Breathable and quick-drying fabrics are essential to stay comfortable during your June trip, including shorts, T-shirts, and sundresses. Don't forget sunscreen, a hat, and sunglasses to shield yourself during sunny intervals.

Particularly if you travel to the wetter Southeast Asian countries, pack a waterproof jacket and footwear. Opt for light layers and take a compact umbrella for unexpected rain.

For outdoor adventures, insect repellent is helpful to protect yourself from the mosquitoes.
