Stretching over 1,700 km in length, Thailand can be divided into 5 distinct regions. The climate is different according to the territory in which one is located. The north region of the country has three different seasons: hot, cool, and rainy.
In the centre of Thailand, only 2 seasons influence the weather, one dry and one rainy, just like the south of the country, which has a more equatorial climate and much longer rainfall.
The best period for cultural visits runs from February to December and the ideal occasion to plunge in the heart of the Thai culture is by attending the various offerings and fairgrounds which take place there.
Don't forget to stop at the foot of the 45-metre high statue of the Great Buddha. It offers a magnificent view of the city and Chalong Bay from the platform and take time to discover among others the temple of Wat Chalong, the largest in Phuket.
