Hey there everyone. I am planning a trip to Thailand during mid September and have heard mixed things about traveling during monsoon season. Has anyone traveled at this time and have feedback for me?

Also, if anyone has any information on cheat flights to Vietnam, Laos, or Cambodia from Bangkok or from Bankok to Phuket it would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
Megan

September is the month with the most rain in Thailand. No worries as it rains mostly at night. Around 7 PM it pours until early morning. On the islands the problem is high seas so sometimes you can't get a ferry.

The flights to other areas of southeast Asia are kind of expensive.

Air Asia has cheapest tickets to Phuket and other areas. The sooner you book a flight the cheaper it is.

Have fun,
Randy and Ning

Hello Megan

I will also be in Thailand, during the rainy season.
I dont think it is a reason not to go. The monsoons are not as bad, as a lot of people think. Usually a few hours of rain a day, with lots of warm, dry, sunny hours.

There are a lot of travel agents, in Bangkok, which will sell cheap tickets to Vietnam, Laos and Cambodia. Sometimes, they can even get the visa, in advance for u. The Khao San Road, and around there will have plenty of such travel agents.

Hello Randy and Ning

I would just like to ask u a couple of questions, if u dont mind.
How many hours of rain can I expect per day, in Bangkok, in May and June. Is it also mostly during the night?
Also, same questions, about Khao Sok.

May is very hot and June has a little rain. It rains mostly at night but you could get a short afternoon shower. The real heavy rain starts around August.

Have fun,

Thanks Allthai

Looks like I chose a good time to go.
The flights to Thailand during the rainy season, are much cheaper, than at other times. Even the ones for May.

Ok not dangerous. but if you go to island, you should checking weather in thailand before travel. I advised natives costom festival " Buffalo race" at chonburi in october (Pattaya in town in chonburi).

The only real problem might be being able to get to some islands because of high seas and waves. If you stay on the beach be careful of rising tides. Last year some bungalows and villagers homes were washed away and people drowned on the East coast.

Have fun
