Hey everyone,

I was wondering if anyone knew what are the best months to travel to Thailand as far as monsoon season and all?

Also does anyone know of any special locations in the area that are less touristy?

My friend also introduced me to some website with crazy travel prices. I see online that the opinions about it are divided,

does anyone have some input on the matter?

Thanks a bunch,

Steven

Tourists visit Thailand every month of the year, best times, rainy times and even when it is a little hot!!

When it rains it does not rain everywhere at the same time. Most of the time the rain stops in an hour or two anyway. The time between November and February is considered to have the best weather. This is also the most expensive time for hotel prices and also when there are more tourists around.

You will find tourists all over Thailand, tourist money pays for the roads, upkeep of parks and beaches and keeps prices down for transportation. If you want places with fewer tourists around you can visit some lesser known cities.

Without knowing the country and airport you will be flying from to get to Bangkok it is difficult for someone to give any specific advice. My advice is to first take the time to visit a few travel agencies near where you live for some free advice on airlines and other information for your holiday. When you know what airlines you can use to get to Bangkok you can pull up their websites and check prices. It is the price the airline companies charge that the discounters have to beat. Different times of the year also means different prices. Close to Christmas and New Years flights to Bangkok are usually higher. Also when pricing flights check several days ahead and past your preferred departure date to see if the price changes. Sometimes leaving on weekends and holidays may cost more.

The worst season is Xmas and New Year, when the whole world has two weeks of. It is called the horror season with 4x more tourists.

You should also avoid Setember and October.
