Thailand in August


Thailand in August : Travel budget & tourist seasons.


Budget your trip depending on your departure time.

Beyond the tourist season (low, medium or high season) of the destination country, prices of your flight, hotel or all-inclusive stays may also vary depending on the demand in your country (our rates are evaluated from western Europe).

Thus, from western Europe, a stay will often be more expensive for a start during the school holidays.

In August, here's what you can expect on average:

  • All-inclusive stays: 1322 € / week

  • Round-trip flight: 845 €

  • Tourist season: high season



Climate in August, picked destinations



Thailand in AugustIn August, weather conditions in Thailand make it a relatively bad trip destination. Among our chosen destinations (see below), the average temperatures you'll face in August would be between 25.8°C and 32.1°C, with exceptional possible peaks as low as 21°C and high as 38°C as observed in previous years.

Depending on your exact destination, you can face more or less rain, the average amount of rain observed during August in Thailand is 210 mm and you can have between 10 and 20 rainy days. If you want to avoid rain, your preferred destination could be Ko Samui.

Note that the gap in temperature between the different areas in the country is low and the number of rainy days should be the same across the country. The country is rather climatically homogeneous in this season.

Based on weather conditions, our advice for one of the best destinations in Thailand during August is Ko Samui.

Thailand: Climate & Weather


The country has an equatorial climate in the extreme south, while the central and northern areas have, in turn, a tropical monsoon climate.

The north is hilly and even mountainous in places, but most of the country is situated at low altitude.

The majority of Thailand suffers from heavy downpours, mainly from May to October.
During the monsoon, the winds of the Indian Ocean bring warm moist air and a lot of cloudy weather.

From November to April there is the dry season. This is the period of the northeast monsoon and the wind blows from China.

At the centre and south of the country, there is little climate variation, but it is generally colder in the northeast.

The hottest months are April and May.
Sunlight is less between June and September as it only shines between 4 to 5 hours a day.
The rest of the year, it shines 9 to 10 hours daily.

The wet season is quite oppressive in the majority of the country because of the combination between hot and moist weather.

A tropical climate clearly dominates the country: The rainy season lasts from June to October, but this does not prevent beautiful sunny periods, but with occasional storms and increased rainfall in the north. The dry season is between November and May with high temperatures from March. The south is colder between April and June. So you can best enjoy a visit between November and March before the hot weather, avoiding the major tourist areas which are quite numerous.
