The Best Places to Visit in Thailand in July

In July, despite the rainy season in many parts of Thailand, there are still several captivating places to visit. Here are some top destinations:

  • Chiang Mai: Explore the cultural richness of northern Thailand. While it's the rainy season, the lush landscapes and cultural festivals, such as Buddhist celebrations, can offer a unique experience.
  • Kanchanaburi: Known for the Erawan National Park and the Death Railway, Kanchanaburi's greenery is at its peak during July. The rain enhances the beauty of waterfalls and the overall natural scenery.
  • Pai: A laid-back town in the mountains of northern Thailand, Pai offers a tranquil atmosphere amidst stunning landscapes. The rain can add a refreshing touch to the surroundings.
  • Ayutthaya: Explore the historical ruins of the ancient capital. The rain can bring a unique charm to the historical monuments, and the crowds are usually thinner during this period.
  • Koh Samui: While the islands generally experience more rain in July, Koh Samui on the east coast tends to have a drier climate compared to other popular islands. Enjoy the beautiful beaches and cultural sites.
  • Bangkok: The bustling capital city offers a vibrant urban experience, even during the rainy season. Explore the city's temples, museums, and shopping districts, and indulge in the diverse culinary scene. While outdoor activities may be affected by occasional rain, Bangkok's indoor attractions provide ample opportunities for cultural exploration.

Crowding and Costs in July

Few people choose July to travel to Thailand because of its heat and rain. Discounted rates can often be seen in many branded hotels and restaurants. The tourist sites and beaches are generally quiet and empty, which makes it a good time to go to relax, though you may need to retreat inside when afternoon/evening downpours come.

Clothes to Wear in July

Light shirts and cool clothes are good attire for Thailand in July. Shorts, skirts, T-shirts, light trousers, and caps are recommended to pack for your trip to Thailand in July.

In most places, there are more than 20 days with some rain in July. So, umbrellas, light raincoats, and rubber boots or sandals are probably going to be needed during your trip in July.
