We’ve all been there. Bags are packed, you’re ready to go. You touch down in a new city, ready to meet some of the local attractions. You’ve got your whole trip planned ahead of you.
Bad weather throws all of that off.
Look, there’s not much you can do about this overall. If you’re destined for bad weather, it’s going to affect your game.
Your only measure of prevention is to attempt to take your trip at a time when the weather is usually more likely to be good.
Southeast Asian weather overall?
A complete mess. Unpredictable. Miserable when it hits.
And while it makes the cities themselves wet, it doesn’t do the same to the ladies, if you pardon my poor humor.
Anyway, if you want to go to Thailand and have the best shot of enjoying the country, as well as increase the chances you have at meeting the local ladies, you need to read this post about the best time to visit Thailand.
What’s the best time to visit Thailand?
The best time to visit is during the “cool” season, which tends to also be more mild with the weather.
Generally speaking, this falls between November and February. I’d advise you to go after the new year – another thing to thwart many a player are holidays and families.
Plus, the prices will be slightly lower and the crowds more manageable. Everybody goes to Thailand in November and December, but starting January things get a little bit better.
Generally speaking, you’ll still have some days with temperatures above 30 degrees Celsius, but at least they’re tolerable. They are far more pleasant and mild than the scorching Bangkok heat in the summer season (35-40C + humidity).
The worst time to go to Thailand is…
Definitely the rainy, monsoon-y season.
This usually hits its absolute peak in the September and October timeframe – right before it gets nice.
Of course, some Thais also classify this season as May to October, but generally speaking, coming out of the “cool” season is a bit more pleasant and less rainy than the actual peak rain season.
Also, many people prefer to run away from Thailand (or at least parts of it, like Chiang Mai) during the burning season. On some days, it can be so bad that you can’t really breathe finely because of the smoke in the air.
But the burning season usually affects the Northern parts of the country more than it does the southern, more touristy areas.
First off, it’s important to note where you’ll be going in Thailand. Since we’re talking about girls, it’s relatively safe to assume you’re either heading to Bangkok, Chiang Mai, or one of the beach/resort towns.
Let’s get one thing out of the way first.
It’s never perfect in Thailand.
If you’re going for more than a week, more than likely you’re going to see rain at one point or another.
However, hopefully it’ll just be for a few hours in the afternoon, and then will clear up. It’s somewhat similar to the weather in Florida, for those of you who have been there.
Meaning you’ll have a random downpour in the afternoon, it’ll be humid like crazy, and then you just go on with your day.
There is a huge difference though, between the situation I described above and a monsoon.
When I say that, I mean the kind of storms that bring already-horrible Bangkok traffic to a complete and utter standstill. We’re talking roads being reduced to pure mud, barely able to go outside kind of weather…. This is never nice, but it’s part of the deal.
What This Really Means
Look, I don’t want to sound like it’s impossible to enjoy Thailand during the bad season.
As I’ve mentioned before – if you have tight game and the right attitude, the sky is the limit for you with Thai women. And the same goes with the beautiful attractions and places to visit.
Don’t let the weather ruin your trip if it comes to it. At the same time… it doesn’t hurt to plan around it and go when the weather is usually better, in order to improve the rain-to-full sun ratio.
