Thailand weather in August

Thailand weather in Aug

August is the peak of the wet season and it is just what you would expect: wet. The temperature averages in the high 20s to low-30s (high 70s to mid-80s Fahrenheit) but the humidity makes it feel warmer.

Bangkok and the central region experience an increase in rainfall and street flooding becomes a strong possibility. Heavy daily rain in Eastern Thailand makes landslides to be a real threat. Chiang Mai and the regions in the north and northeast see around 20 days of rain in August and in larger towns street flooding is a problem.

For beach goers, Koh Samui and surrounding beaches on the east coast, enjoy drier days and lots of sun. Phuket and the beaches of the west coast and Koh Chang on the east coast experience daily rainfall.

The rain and humidity will leave you damp during your travels and a rain coat is necessary. You should also be prepared to wade through some water if you visit Bangkok or the northeast. But August in Thailand is low on tourists and the beaches in the southwest can be nice this time of year.
