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?

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

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.
