The climate varies throughout the country and it is possible to travel all year round. The optimum time to travel is during the cool and dry season between November and late March. During this season, the north experiences the greatest range of temperatures: at night it can drop to zero in the mountains while from March to May it can reach 35 degrees.

In the south the climate differs between the east and west coastlines. The monsoon hits the Andaman coast from May to October meaning Krabi, Phuket and Khao Lak can receive heavy raining during these months. November through to April is better time to visit this region when you will experience hot dry days.

The east coast including the island of Koh Samui is sheltered from the worst of the monsoon rains and can also be enjoyed during the summer months.


Walking and Trekking

The terrain around Chiangmai and the Golden Triangle is ideal for trekking enthusiasts: the climiate is cooler the trip is incorporated with tribal communities life. During the high season, the villages closest to Chiangmai can be busy with large groups. We could travel a little further to the Huay Nam Dang National Park for treks to Karen and Lahu villages where you can stay with families. Award-winning ecolodges in the area aprovide suitable base for day treks. In the northwest, the picturesque slopes of Doi Angkhang provide easy trekking ground to visit the Black Lahu and Palaung tribes. Further west is the dramatic, densely-forested scenery around Mae Hong Son and Pai with caves, hot springs and stunning rice paddies amongst the attractions visited on foot. The remote areas of Mae Sariang and Umphang can also be explored in the trip. All these provide some of the best trekking itinerary in the country.

River Journeys and Cruises

From the mighty Mekong to the rich waters of the Andaman Sea, Thailand's waters have traditionally played an important part in the country and still widely used for transportation. An excellent way to reach the anicent capital of Ayuthaya is to take a two night cruise on board the Manohra Song, a beautiful coverted rice barge from Bangkok along the Chao Phraya River to bring these ancient temples.

The River Kwai can also be explored onboard the R/V River Kwai which was built according to the colonial plans of the Irrawaddy Flotilla Company. Shore visits include the exploration of temples, historic sites, Khmer ruins and World War II monuments.

In southern Thailands, thereis June Bahtra which is a traditional junk-rigged schooner which takes you through the dramatic limestone karst scenery of Phang Nga Bay. Suwan Macha, a tradtional junk offers a three night cruise in Phang Nga Bay.

Beaches and Diving

Not to be missed is the pure white sands and beaches in turquoise oceans in Thailand.

Thailand is one of the least expensive places to learn how to dive and the school are of very good standard. Most resorts offer PADI diving course and the island of Koh Tao on the east coast is a good destination fo the beginners.

Similian National Marine Park with easy access from Khao Lak, and the dive sites of Hin Daeng and Hin Muang south of Koh Lanta offer spectacular diving in Thailand.
