When it rains... it rains (but never for long) and there are plenty of places to get undercover. I did find myself last year buying a pink Donald Duck umbrella as I got caught in it and had no choice but to dive into the nearest shop. Even when it rains it's still very hot! Shorts a t-shirt, flip-flops and an umbrella (this won't look strange in Bangkok)!

Sure it may rain, but it is nothing like Noah's Ark rain!

The rain usually stops in an hour or two and often it falls when you are sleeping. The rain doesn't fall all over Thailand at the same time anyway. So, when it rains a little - you take in a movie (real cheap,) hit a bar or restaurant, catch some sleep or check out a mall. The rain stops falling and the sun comes out nice and hot to sunburn you real good!

Some minor flooding in low areas until the drains get a handle on the water - so get a room on the second floor if you are in one of those places. Pick up a cheap small umbrella and stick it in your carry bag and you will be okay.

Not so many crowds in September and and many hotels have low season pricing in effect. September is not a bad time to visit!
