Will be traveling to Thailand April-July
I have looked at the weather map, just wondering if anyone has personal experience of being in the souther region of thailand for these months and how bad the weather is... for rain.

Southeast or southwest? they're on different monsoon systems.

In general wet season is characterised by some rain most days -- generally an hour or two of rain, rather than all-day drizzle.

Sorry somtam mate, I've got to disagree with you there. I remember the good old days when you could guarantee that there would be a rain shower every day at 3pm. Those days seem to be long gone now. Last year throughout the province of Surat Thani June and July had very little rain, in fact it was really bloody hot and dusty. Through August and September the rain literally didn't stop. October and November were hot and dry again.

I have no idea what the weather was like Andaman side but as somtam rightly said SW and SE have different weather systems. So beemeers, don't worry about the weather, it is normally possible to avoid the rain by switching between SE and SW.
