Not sure is this is a silly question or not? Should I take a coat to Thailand? I plan on being there about 6 months starting at the end of this month

Not a silly question. I was considering the same myself.
So i have been reading a bit about the climate, in Thailand.
I would bring a light rain jacket. It will still be the rainy season, when u get there. Although you will probably feel somewhat hot and sticky, when u wear it, because the temperatures in most of Thailand are hot year round. The only places which get in any way cool, are in the mountains. So, i suppose the rain jacket would keep u warm there if u are temperature sensitive.

Thanks Mel, may bring a light jacket (though I will leave the hat, scarf and gloves at home)

At the very least a long sleeve shirt that you can use as a light jacket.
You can even freeze your butt off on some of the long distance Air-Con bus rides or on boat trips.

If you go to the north in Nov, Dec, Jan, and especially on the mountains, then you need the THICK clothing. Maybe not a coat like in your country but a thick jumper may be more handy and not taking much space in your luggage.

Sept means raining still in Thailand - so a handy "rain" coat is a wise pick.
Enjoy Thailand.
