The seasons in Thailand

There are two main seasons in Thailand, a dry season and a rainy season.

But in some areas, there are three seasons, the rainy season, the cold season, and the warm season.

Monsoon or rainy season

It runs from June to October.

But it can also rain downpours for several days, which means that every year, some provinces are flooded.

The dry season and rainy season are less marked in the south (Phuket and below).
