Fan or Aircon in December?

Posted by EmjayReet on 5/7/2006 at 15:32


I have heard mixed reviews on whether fan or aircon is best when getting accommodation? Most places I have ended up opting for fan (eg: the resort in Koh Phangan said I was much better with fan due to sea breeze). Is this the case or should I have gotten air con in December? The places I have chosen fans are Ko Phangan, Chiang Mai & Khao Sok...

December is pretty cool (by Thai standards) in Chiang Mai, so I'd say fan is fine up there, and I'd definetly agree with opting for a seabreeze over air-con when on the beach and even in Khao Sok.

If you find it unbearably hot, just ask and you'll often be able to switch rooms.

It can be pretty cool at night time in Chiang Mai and other parts of the north of Thailand around that time. I was in Pai in the north of Thailand in January this year & had to ask for an extra blanket at night time! A fan should be fine.
