When choosing your travel destination and planning your trip it is always a good idea to get to know what kind of weather you should expect. In fact, many travelers decide where they will be traveling to and what time of year they will go based on the weather conditions that the intended destination is inclined to. This is yet another reason why Southeast Asia is such a great travel destination and loved my many. I is located close enough to the equator that it relatively has a tropical warm climate all year round! With days that are filled with sunshine and higher temperatures the nights tend to be a lot cooler adding a perfect end to a travelers day! Check out a couple of the weather highlights for a few of the different countries that ca be found in Southeast Asia!
- Laos- Unlike most of the other countries throughout Southeast Asia, Laos tends to have various weather and climates throughout its many regions. While most of the time it seems to have a traditionally warm tropical climate it can also have a cool and dry climate mostly during monsoon season. It can also vary between dry and hot and hot and humid.
- Thailand- Generally monsoon season in Thailand runs between June and October with September being the wettest month of all. The Southern regions of this country can seem a bit cloudier and cooler than others but tend to have the least rainfall. The northern region has the most rainfall and just when you think the humidity and temperatures are a little too unbearable around May monsoon season begins
- Indonesia- Indonesia generally always has a dry region even during monsoon season. With that being said Indonesia’s monsoon season is actually the complete opposite of Thailand, with the season starting in November and continuing until April. June thru September are the driest and coldest months of the year.
- Philippines- Because of the many islands and volcanoes that can be found in the Philippines the weather can greatly be affected. June thru September months usually bring a lot of heavy rain which can make some of the islands difficult to get to because of the rough waters found at sea. January-March being some of the best months to visit, with Typhoon season beginning in May and running through October.
With many different countries and regions to choose from throughout Southeast Asia there is sure to be a travel destination that fits your weather needs. As we mentioned before because the country is located so close to the equator weather tends to be tropical and warm with a little rain and humidity to account for. We suggest as always that before planning your get away look into the weather and other various factors before confirming your trip to ensure you have the best time possible in the best conditions suited for you!
