Geographically - Thailand is the lucky country in Southeast Asia
Thailand's beaches have two major oceans, two monsoons and three weather patterns, and are not as simple as might expect in a small country. Anyone considering a vacation in a beachfront resort here should arm themselves with knowledge of the basics of Thai weather.
The major influences on the weather are the two monsoons, the Southwest Monsoon blowing in from the Indian Ocean (May-October), and the Northeast Monsoon that rages out of the Pacific (November-February).
Read more about how Thailand lies along the relatively tranquil, mid point between these two great competing weather patterns from the Pacific and Indian Oceans.
Of these the southwest monsoon is the most important, by far, since it sweeps across and brings rain to the entire country for almost six month of the year. Thailand catches only the edge of the Northeast monsoon, and only in the South of the country. The big beach destinations seriously affected by this second monsoon are Koh Samui, Koh Phangan and Koh Tao, and all places to the south of there. All others are dependent on the weather created by Indian Ocean, the Southwest Monsoon.
