Thailand Climate

Thailand's climate can be described as tropical, therefore it is hot and humid all year round, with average temperature around 28-35°C. There are three seasons in Thailand: hot, rainy and cool.
Hot season starts from March to June, with temperature as high as 40°C. This is the best time of year to visit the beach and relax or enjoy some water sport activities. Book with Wired Destinations. Rainy Season is from early July to Mid October. Tropical monsoons hit most of the country in September and with chances of downpours. Cool Season is during November to late February. There is not much rain and the temperature is at its lowest. There is not much difference in the South, but prepare a sweater if you are hiking in the northern mountains. Temperature can fall as low as 4°C. Visiting Thailand during this time is most popular, especially around December.

Thailand Dress Code

Due to the hot weather and high humidity level in Thailand all year round, casual clothes from natural fibers, like cotton, are recommended. However, in temples or government offices, travelers are required to dress properly. Expect trousers or at least knee length shorts or skirts and T-shirts with sleeves and proper shoes. No sleeveless blouse or flip flops are allowed in these areas. In some temples tourists can borrow appropriate attire before entering. Ask the concierge at your Thailand Hotel for details.

Thailand Communication

Up-to-date technology and international satellite links provide Thailand with a sophisticated communications system. International Direct Dial (IDD) facilities are available at major Thailand hotels and resorts. Internet cafes are everywhere. Card phones can be found in most airports, public buildings, and large shopping centers. Cards are widely available and can be purchased in several denominations. Coin operated phones are available but harder to find.

Thailand Electricity

The electricity in Thailand is 220 volts. If you are from a 110-volt country, it is recommended to purchase 220 volt appliances.

Thailand Language

Thai is the official language and is spoken everywhere. English is commonly used in most Thailand Hotels and urban areas when addressing a foreigner. A Thai phrase book can be very useful to those getting off the beaten track.

Thailand Health Facilities

World-class health facilities are to be found in Bangkok, Chiang Mai, Phuket and Hat Yai as well as a number of other major centers. Efficient and hygienic hospitals and clinics are located in most populated areas. Dental clinics are numerous, provide excellent services and, like health care clinics, are open into the early evening hours.
