I'd originally planned to arrive in Thailand for a month from mid-march to mid-April. Having read around, it seems that April is the most hot & humid time and can get unbearable in places.
Is there much difference in heat/humidity between going mid-feb to mid-march, and mid-march to mid-april? I'd prefer to do the latter, but the weather reports are a bit offputting. I'd be looking to spend a few days each in Bangkok and Chiang Mai, and a good amount of time partying on the islands.
Thanks for your input -

Personally I dont think it makes a lot of difference daytime , but late March-April-May , at nighttime is the one time of the year my air-con is going on , or its too difficult to sleep .
Also I would add , after last year , I would be wary of Chiang Mai around March , when it was blanketed with a pollution haze .
Maybe it will be different this year .....maybe !
The difference between March and April can be summed up in two words; hot, hotter.
In terms of humidity I find these months to be very dry and, therefore, not at all humid.

Yes, it's much different. If you can't bear heat and humid. Mid Feb - mid Mar will suit you well. In Feb the weather is mild and dry. This lasts till early or mid of Mar.
