Thailand's hot, dry season occurs between November and April, meaning the best time to visit is around tthen. April and May are the hottest months, whereas May to October is most of Southeast Asia's rainy season. Don't be put off by the sweeping monsoons during this period; it means the beaches are quieter and hotel rates are often cheaper, making it still a great time to travel.
What should be on my Thailand packing list?
It's easy to get carried away with your packing list when you're taking a trip to such an exotic country, but if you're planning on travelling to multiple locations, pack light! Don't forget a 220-240 AC voltage, or a universal plug adaptor, mosquito repellent, earplugs, a waterproof and waterproof bag if you're visting during rainy season, and comfortable shoes for all the exploring you'll be doing. Don't, under any circumstances, forget to organise travel insurance before you go!
Which vaccinations do I need before I travel to Thailand?
Check with your doctor to see which of the following vaccinations you've already had in school, and which ones you might still need, out of Tetanus, Diptheria, Typhoid, and Hepatits B. If you're off to a remote area that's far off of the beaten path, you might need malaria pills.
