Koh Lanta – Best time to go

Best time to visit Koh Lanta

Koh Lanta basks in a warm, tropical climate all year round but we really love going in the months from November to March, when temperatures are just about perfect and there’s only the very occasional rain shower.  

Best times to visit

Dry Season

In Koh Lanta the dry season runs from October to May, with most people choosing to visit in the clear, warm months from November to March. April and May get very hot, with little or no rain. 

Rainy Season

June to September sees an hour or so of rain most days and temperatures are cooler. Koh Lanta's mountains block some of the rainfall and the jungle and mangrove forests are at their most lush and green.
