Thailand is an amazing place on earth, where millions of tourists come to relax every year from all over the world. Since the climate is conducive to proper rest, even in April, during the rainy season, the flow of tourists is not reduced. This is due to the unique climatic conditions and constant high temperatures.
To begin with, we would like to note that the rainy season is not as scary as you might think. Sometimes in April does pass without rain, and even if it does rain, it lasts no longer than a few hours, rather than weeks or months. 🙂
The most popular and comfortable tourist destinations in the country are Phuket, Pattaya and Samui. You can fully relax or swim in the sea, even in rainy season, not to mention obtaining a gorgeous bronze tan.
Weather in Phuket in April
Phuket weather in April remained higher than 30 degrees and this is the average temperature, which may cool only at night. As the locals like to relax here, it is best to choose the middle of spring or winter, since the average annual rainfall compared to other summer and spring months are extremely low. So, even when the rainy season is in full swing, the total amount of precipitation does not exceed 120 mm. Even in the rainy season, the temperature in the city reaches its peak.
Weather in Pattaya in April
In Pattaya, the weather is a little bit better than in Phuket. The monthly average temperature conditions do not fall below 30 degrees. At the same time, by mid-April the water temperatures warm up to 26-28 degrees Celsius. Although this is the peak of the rainy season, the average monthly figures for precipitation in two times less than in Phuket. It often rains only at night or the morning, which does not really affect the quality of your holiday.
Weather in April in Samui
When it comes to such a unique resort in Thailand, like Koh Samui, can safely say that this island is radically different from other Thai resorts. April is the most comfortable month for a scheduled vacation as the island is located on the border of the Gulf of Thailand and it rains here for the whole year. It is only in April that the weather stabilizes, and the average rainfall is less than 80 mm figures. The temperature at this time also does not fall below 30 degrees in the daytime. The water is also extremely comfortable for swimming as it warms up to 27 degrees.
To summarize, we can say that April is the best month to visit Thailand. 🙂
