When To Visit

The best time to visit Thailand depends entirely on what you’d like to do when you get there, where in the Kingdom you plan to visit and the type of holiday you enjoy. Weather is most comfortable from November to February but with distinct patterns noticed throughout the year:

  • Warm and dry Season = November to February. Warm temperatures, sunshine, and infrequent showers.
  • Hot and dry season = March to May. High temperatures and uncomfortable levels of humidity but a low chance of rainfall.
  • Hot and wet season = June to August. Heavy downpours and high humidity.
  • Cool and wet season = September to October. Comfortable temperatures but rainfall is at its highest.

As Thailand is quite a large country there are geographical variations to consider too.

The northern part of Thailand (Chiang Mai) is a mountainous region which experiences the most variation in its weather patterns. It is less humid than the southern part of Thailand and can be quite chilly during the dry season however, March to May sees temperatures higher than the rest of the country.

The southern part of Thailand has a more tropical climate with temperatures remaining relatively consistent throughout the year but rainfall fluctuating considerably.

TLE Top Tip: Fly Qatar Airways Q Suite

If you are travelling from the UK to Thailand you will arrive at Bangkok’s main airport Suvarnabhumi or Phuket International. We recommend travelling to Bangkok with Qatar Airways, which offers exceptional business-class cabins across its fleet globally. They also offer Q Suite Business Class cabins on their Doha to Bangkok route, which is the best way to travel in our opinion!


The Healing Art of a thai massage

At the heart of Thailand’s spa culture is the world-renowned Thai massage. Rooted in ancient healing traditions, Thai massage is a holistic practice that blends acupressure, assisted yoga postures, and Ayurvedic principles to align the body’s energy, known as “sen.” The combination of gentle stretching, rhythmic pressure, and mindful breathing helps release tension and promotes the flow of vital energy throughout the body.

These therapeutic sessions are conducted in tranquil settings, often adorned with soothing aromas, calming music, and warm lighting, creating an atmosphere that encourages complete relaxation. The knowledgeable therapists, or “healers,” employ their intuition and years of training to tailor the massage to your specific needs, ensuring a unique and deeply restorative experience.
