Southern Thailand Beaches

It’s all about timing. To avoid crowds and inflated prices, we recommend the period between high and low seasons when the weather is fine, places are still open and happy to welcome travelers, and you can explore a destination at your own pace. ShermansTravel experts call this magical time and space continuum the Sweet Spot.

When to go to Southern Thailand Beaches

Peak Season: December to April

Prices are higher than usual, but still lower than those in Europe or the United States. Enjoy fabulous festivals, appealingly warm days averaging 85 degrees, balmy nights, and practically no rain.

Off Season: May to October

In addition to lower rates at hotels and resorts, the summer brings higher humidity, though steady breezes make it bearable. The weather on the two coasts differs slightly – Phuket, on the west (Andaman) coast, experiences more rain, with frequent afternoon showers in May and October. March to June can be scorching on Koh Samui and the rest of the Gulf Coast, while October brings the occasional storm.
