Thailand has three main seasons per year. Northern climatic conditions are favoured by Thais countrywide as the coolest and most comfortable. Generally northern temperatures are between 3-5 oC lower than the rest of the country

Mountain temperatures are a few degrees lower than Chiang Mai city and clients should bring suitable clothing; during the cool season it may even be considered cold with night temperatures drooping as low as 2 oC over the cool season.

Average temperatures (in degrees Celsius) and rainfall throughout Northern Thailand are displayed in the following graphs.

Rainfall:

It is quite uncommon for rain to fall except between May-Sep. The North differs from Central and Southern Thailand during the rainy season and continuous rainfall in quite rare. It will usually rain heavily for a period between 30 minutes to one hour, once or twice a day and soon dries up after the sun appears. The area is then left feeling fresh and cool.
