Advice what beaches to go in Thailand in August

Posted by Jfigs on 26/1/2012 at 22:12

Hi
I am planning a trip to southeast asia. Its my first time and after 3 years of lawschool and studying for the bar this will be my BIG vacation. i am looking forward to enjoy a nice vacation. I would love to visit Thailand. I plan to do the main attractions but I would also love to relax a few days at a Beach. I know its the rainy season but after reading a few blogs I feel I can be lucky and get some good weather. What beaches do you recommend? If you think I run a risk of having bad weather, do you recommend any other beaches?

Thanks

Also Koh Samui and Ang Thong Marine Park... You'll find plenty of good weather, don't fret.

Thank you for the responses. Do you recommend chiang Mai in August?

I can recommend Chiang Mai any time of year, but you never know when the big rains will hit until you're there. Rainy season runs roughly June-October but sometimes August is pretty good, a bit cloudy but not to hot either like in March/April it's usually stinking hot. There are often more thunderstorms and unsettled weather in June and October at the start/end of wet season and more settle in the middle. July and August are surprisingly two of the busiest tourist months in CM.

I've been to Koh Mak, Koh Tao and Koh Phangnan (bottle beach was very nice) in July and were excellent. No rain what so ever.
