  1. Thailand for Family – When To Go?

    We are a family of 5 with kids aged 5, 6, and 10. When would you say is the best time for a family vacation in Thailand? We want to swim, spend time at the pool, and do a little sightseeing (but not too much).

      January and February are the absolute best months but anytime between December and March is great. April and early May are good too as long as you can stand the heat. June through September are still fine but weather is better on east coast than west coast.
