To beat the crowds, the best months are November and December as these months are too early in the season for the majority of holiday-makers.

The hottest months are between March and June. However, the monsoon season intersects the hottest months and so this must be considered when you are thinking of travelling. April and May are the hottest months in the warm season, with the height of their temperatures reaching 32 degrees. It might be best to travel in early April when it is still hot but before the monsoon season begins.

How expensive is it to travel to Thailand?

Food and accommodation are extremely cheap when compared to most european countries, and it's possible to find some very attractive deals on hotel rooms. As with any holiday, you should consider taking out appropriate worldwide travel insurance that can cover you in the event of an emergency. For travelling to Thailand, you'll also want to make sure you are up to date with any vaccinations you need before travelling.
