February is a continuation of the pleasant weather experienced in January. The cool, dry conditions persist, creating a comfortable atmosphere for travellers.

August

Rainfall continues in August, but the east coast islands like Koh Samui and Koh Phangan tend to have better weather during this period.

On August 12th, Thailand celebrates the Queen's Birthday, a national holiday. It's a time when Thais show their love and respect for the monarchy.

September

September marks the transition as the rainy season starts to wane. The weather gradually improves, particularly towards the latter part of the month.

Mahidol Day on September 24th is another national holiday, commemorating the life and contributions of Prince Mahidol, the father of modern medicine and public health in Thailand.
