Compass over a map of Thailand


The climate in Thailand is tropical and is largely influenced by the monsoon, which separates the rainy and dry seasons. A good tip is that the further south you go, the longer the rainy season lasts. In the north it rains from June to September, and in the south from May to October. When it rains, it rarely lasts all day and during the rainy season, nature in Thailand is in full bloom.

Time Difference

The timezone in Thailand is GMT+7 all year around.
