What’s the weather like in Thailand in February?
Thailand is close to the equator, which means most of the country has a tropical climate. You’ll get high temperatures and plenty of sun if you’re going in February. It’s one of the cooler months of the year, but it’s still very hot, and it’s in the north eastern monsoon season. This means you’ll have less rain than in the south western monsoon, which runs from May to October, when things are warmer, cloudier and more humid. If it does rain February it’s usually not for long.
One of Thailand’s most famous islands, Koh Samui, has an average high of 29ºC in February. This is perfect for an escape from the chilly UK winter, especially as it only cools to 23ºC at night. The sea temperature is 28ºC, which is ideal for swimming, while humidity’s high. There’s 39mm of rain over five days, and you can expect nine hours of sunshine from the 12 hours of daylight each day. UV levels will be extremely high, so make sure you use plenty of sun cream. The sun goes down at around 6.30pm.
