When it rains in Thailand it usually does not rain all day long! Normally it rains for an hour or two, sometimes it is at nighttime, you'll probably still get around 8 hours of sunshine.

Sometimes there is some local flooding when the street drains cannot handle the downpour.

There might be a little more influence by "El Nino, El Nina" this year, same thing occurred around 8 years ago too!

What is your specific worry? After November "high season" pricing comes into effect in more places. Usually if it is cold in North America it is "high season" (pricing) in Thailand!

Thailand is warm year round, you can get a tan using an outside swimming pool in Chiangmai same-same as Phuket!

During this September - November time period there will be thousands and thousands and thousands of tourists happily passing through Thai immigratioin without much of a worry at all!

ok

The info from Karazyal is very true. The rains never last too long and will rarely disrupt touring plans. If you're thinking about laying on the beach in Phuket or thereabouts, then maybe the frequent rain will put a definite damper on your sunbath, but only for a little while. Really, it's a nice time to tour Cambodia or Thailand; much less tourists and prices will be a bit cheaper. And in Cambodia the rainy season gives the beautiful countryside an even more magnicent green glow. Forget the beaches: Hop on a motorbike and check out the rural scenery and friendly people.
