A bit dampish in the UK this summer? A TP member I know from Cornwall has been whinging about the constant rain as well. If you look at the past records for rainfall, Oct. is still getting rain every other day. Nov. is drier, Dec. is one of the best months for weather in Thailand. This holds for Cambodia as well. VN is over 1,600km long, so it while it may be wet and cool in HaNoi, HCMC & Nha Trang may be basking in the sun.

I have been in Pattaya in Dec. and it is one of the better months weatherwise. Mostly dry and not quite so hot. Darren, check weather conditions once there and be flexible in your planning. You will have a great time even if it rains a bit.

Hey Darren

Im going to VN in Nov also for 25 days - l would say expect rain - l am - lm also expecting some GOOD weather somewhere along the road - l would like a day or two lounge on a beautiful beach reading a book!

I know the weather in Ireland seems monsoon like but believe me its nothing like the rain in SE Asia during rainy season - firstly it will still be warm so it will be warm rain & secondly the amount that pours from the sky is like nothing you have experienced at home!

If there are any thunder & lighting storms they can be quite spectacular!


PS The weather here has been absolute rubbish hasnt it!

Hello Dar Egan:)

I was in Thailand, in June.
Most of the rain was at night.
In the rain forest, it sometimes rained for most of the day, but that was only around every 4th day. Most of the rain there was at night too.
U might have some trouble getting onto the islands, if u intend to go by boat. If the sea is too rough(which it sometimes is, during the rainy season), the boats dont go.
