Chiang Mai – Best time to go

Best time to visit Chiang Mai

We particularly love Chang Mai from November to February, when the sun shines every day, temperatures are warm but comfortable, humidity is lower and rain is scarce. Perfect weather for enjoying everything Chang Mai has to offer. 

Best times to visit

Dry Season

Chang Mai’s dry season is split into the cool season from November to February and the hot season from March to May. The cool months are beautifully warm and the ideal time to visit. The hot season sees soaring temperatures and humidity.  

Rainy Season

The monsoon rains break through from June to October, when the weather is a mix of downpours and bright sunshine. The rainy season is generally lighter in Chang Mai than in central or southern Thailand. The wettest month is September.
