Yachting season and weather in Thailand
Thailand's tropical climate makes the holiday season all year round. In the Andaman Sea (Burma Sea), there are seldom strong winds. The resort areas' average annual temperature is about 22-27 degrees, and the Thailand water temperature is the same. It happens even higher. The peak of the heat is in late spring and early summer. There is no rainy season, but precipitation is quite frequent.
Since Thailand stretches on the map from north to south for 1860 km, you should plan your route on a yacht based on the region you want to relax. On the southwestern coast of the country, it is best to relax from November to May. In the west of the Gulf of Thailand — from January to April.
From June to October, surfers thrive on the rough Andaman Sea. It's the best time to travel to Thailand and to catch high waves.
It would be best to consider the ebb and flow — it is not a seasonal phenomenon and can change several times a day. The water level difference can be more than two meters check out the Thailand travel guide and be confident in your route plan. Forecast charts of ebb and flow in different regions of the country are available on the Internet.
