not be as hot as some areas of the country, but it is humid , which is something tourists need to prepare for. When the monsoon season arrives, the temperatures decrease. Temperatures in May, for instance, average 79 degrees Fahrenheit (26 degrees Celsius) each day despite thunderstorms and showers. For those on the peninsula, the climate also remains hot all year, but it doesn’t have dramatic changes like in other parts of the country. Highs are around 91 degrees Fahrenheit (32 degrees Celsius), and the rainy season doesn’t affect the peninsula’s eastern coast as much as other parts of the country. Every year, Thailand sees around 57 inches (144 cm) of rainfall, most of which occurs in September and October.
A typhoon develops in the Anderman Sea, just off the Thai coastline. Storms of this nature can be dangerous.
