Best Times to Visit South East Asia

South East Asia is an all year round destination. Generally the dry season is November through to February when the weather is dry and cooler. Monsoon for most countries is June to October, but it varies by country and in many cases the rain will not stop your holiday enjoyment unless you are just after sun bathing as the rains tend to come for a couple of hours and then ease off again.

Most travellers choose November to February and so it is busiest and most expensive in those months. March to May is the hot season and June to October the rainy season.

Average temperatures are around 27 – 30 degrees and being mostly equatorial it is humid.

Best for Beaches?

In Thailand and Vietnam the beaches are at their best in November to February. If you plan on visiting Bali or Malaysia’s East Coast ( e.g. Perhentian and Tioman Islands) then the best time to April to October.

Beach resorts in the wet season are open as generally it only rains for a couple of hours and then the sun comes out – with the added benefit that prices are cheaper and it’s less busy.
