clarife has indicated that this thread is about Thailand

Hi All,

Myself and my boyfriend are heading to SE Asia in roughly June or July(was may but we had to push back). We have 3-4 months and want to see Thailand mostly, vietnam, cambodia and we havent decided on anywere else for definite. We want to spend at least a month on the islands, but dont know if we are picking the worst time to go? Is everything still open, and would there still be a lot of tourists around june to september?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance!!!

Hello Clarife.

I will be in Thailand, in May and June.
I dont think the rainy season is so bad.
It will rain a bit, but there will still be plenty of warm sun shine.
I read, that on the islands(Thailand), if the weather is bad, on one side of the island, u can just move to the other, for better weather.
Somebody, however did post a few weeks ago, that the sea can be rough, during the rainy season, so if u want to go out on boat trips, this may not always be possible.

It is not the high season, in june and july, so there will be fewer tourists, than in December, January and Feburary. I have not heard of anything closing. But sometimes boats wont go to remote places, if there are storm possibilities. When I was on Koh Pha Ngan, no boats were going to bottle beach, because of too many storms. This was at the end of the last rainy season.

Places like oh Chang close down some facilities in the the snorkelling boat trips etc as the sea can get too rough. This year they actually suspended the ferry services, marooning everone for a couple of days.
