Mausim is the Arabic word from
where the monsoon word comes and means season. The
Thailand monsoon is a seasonal wind reversal. You
may think that the rain causes the monsoon but is
the wind which products the rain.
Six months of the
years are visited by the wind coming from one
direction and the other six months by the wind
coming from the opposite direction.

During the same season, regions as Ko Tao, Ko Samui, Ko

Considering the climate conditions, Thailand can be
divided in two principal regions: South and North.
In South are only two seasons while in North are
three seasons. In North, from November till June is
a dry weather and the rain’s season is from June to
November. More, the dry season has also two parts:

timing is not the same on the East and the West coast.
Storms and rains come on the West coast from April till
October and on the East coast
from September till December. All over Thailand is very dry
and hot from March till June, there can be even 40 Celsius
and from July to October is the rain and the monsoon season.
It doesn’t matter that you must avoid the Thailand monsoon
season and not spend a vacation in this period.
There are advantages of going on
trip in this season such as cooler weather, lower
accommodation rates and fewer tourists in hotels and
on streets. The monsoons have effects on the
Thailand’s economy. The country’s central region
plays the most important role in the Thai economy.
Huge agricultural products quantities are produced
here, for export but also for the domestic
consumption. A principal factor for the production
is the Chao Phraya River that passes through the
central part of the country. The river can be
flooded by the monsoon rainfalls and the damages can
be big for Thais. The population stress on the basin
of the Chao Phraya River increased and
this had as result problems of the
water’s quality and quantity. This is why the effective
management and planning of water resources are required.
