Best Time to Visit Thailand for Honeymoon

Bangkok The Grand Palace, Bangkok

November to February is the best time to visit Thailand for a honeymoon, because of the sunny, warm, and dry weather in most areas of Thailand (Bangkok, Chiang Mai, Phuket, Krabi, Khao Lak...). All kinds of activities are at their best time.

Thailand’s rainy season usually starts in June and ends in October. While Koh Samui is an exception. It's rainiest and windiest between October and December. So, July to September and January to March are the best times to visit Koh Samui for a honeymoon.

Many travelers may be concerned that the rainy season will affect their travel experience, but, unfortunately, their vacation time falls right in that period. Don’t worry about that. The rain is usually just short afternoon/dusk downpours. So, you can still enjoy most of a day without much inconvenience. Our travel expert will also help create a suitable itinerary to minimize the impact of weather on your travel experience. >>>Best Times to Visit Thailand
