From March to May, the weather can get pretty extreme with temperatures up to 38°C with high humidity, which means the least owning customers the year.

The rainy season takes place from May to October, the rainiest months are August and September, and heavy rain could cause a flood. But it isn’t bad like you have heard, the weather is pleasant at 20°C, and the rain won’t last all day. There is a time for sunny shine, rainbows, and dragon boat races on the Nam Khan River in October, which you shouldn’t miss. It depends on you that the best time would be decided.
