Everyone knows Thailand's High Season begins in November .... but not in the south..
High season weather on Thai beaches is idyllically beautiful, and the reasons for this show just how luck this country is to be sitting on the dividing line between two great oceans and two powerful weather patterns.
In November and December, while the Philippines and Vietnam are boarding up against the violent typhoons that sweep in from the Pacific Ocean, Thailand welcomes these same winds. These are the force behind its relatively dry high season. Happily for most of Thailand, the northeast typhoon season expends virtually all of its rain and violence over Vietnam, China and Cambodia before arriving as cool, dry and pleasant breezes over Thailand. These welcome winds begin in November and blow till February
Since these winds are coming from the northeast, most Thai resorts that face west or south have off-shore breezes that leave the water lapping their sands absolutely calm. Put beautiful blue skies above and we have the idyllic, high-season conditions that have made Thai beaches so famous.
But be warned, things are very different in the other 20% of the country, the southern islands of Samui, Koh Phangan and Koh Tao.
