Hi, im thinking of going to Thailand in august, probably concentrating on phuket and the islands. Is this the monsoon season?? has anyone travelled there and had problems at that time?

Hiya!!!
I was there in August and to be honest it wasnt a problem at all!I only saw rain twice in the whole time I was there, once of which was pretty extreme but it wasnt a problem at all, had a fantastic time and the weather was nice!!!

Yes, I agree.. Some showers, nothing serious, great weather most of the time. If you are thinking going on trekking (Chang Mai area) it may be even better to go in july or august, coz its not so cold.
If u are planning to stay on the islands, I think wearher differs on which island you stay on. Am I right?!
