Krabi, Phuket and Koh Samui are the three most popular beach destinations in Thailand. Trying to decide which one to visit? Use Thailand’s climate to guide you.
Thailand has 2 distinct monsoon seasons. One - the main one - occurs in Thailand's interior and west cost, while another occurs on the Gulf side. Monsoons are not just marked by heavy rains but also rough seas, which can really jeopardize good-time fun on the beach. Avoid the monsoon at the beach by picking the right beach destination.
Travelers typically visit Phuket or Krabi between November through April – the cooler dry season. For the island of Samui, travelers target April through August. The good news is that no matter the time of year may want to travel in Thailand, you almost always have a solid beach area to visit with good weather.
