When is the best time to visit Thailand? Plus cheap beach holidays in Phuket, Khao Lak, Bangkok & Pattaya
THAILAND is the ultimate winter sun destination.
Great beaches, wildlife, food, culture, weather and people mean that it ticks all of the boxes for a memorable holiday.
The best time to visit Thailand is between November and early April, as temperatures average between 32 and 36C, and there are up to nine hours of sunshine every day.
To make it even more appealing, some of Asia’s most stunning beaches are in Thailand. There’s accommodation for every budget, from luxury spa resorts to thatched beach huts and hotels.

If you’re planning a family holiday, Pattaya is filled with family-friendly resorts and activities.
Phuket is the biggest island in Thailand and is full of hotels, miles of sandy beaches, restaurants and nightlife.
In the southern Gulf of Thailand, you’ll find luxurious beach resorts on Ko Samui, Ko Phangan, and Ko Tao islands.
Some of Thailand’s most breathtaking landscapes can be found on the beaches and islands of Krabi Province.
