WAIW | Chiang Mai in the Rainy Season

Since I talked earlier this year about how bad things can be in Chiang Mai and Northern Thailand during the burning season when the air quality drops significantly, I decided today to talk a bit about another season in Thailand that can determine whether or not your trip here is good or bad:

The rainy season.

Although one can’t predict exactly when the rainy season will start and end, it typically runs from May/June into October. Depending on the region you’re in (or planning on visiting), you could see a lot of rain and it could last even longer than the time period I just mentioned.

Whether or not this kind of forecast will make or break your decision to travel during that time depends a lot on what you’re hoping to experience while you’re in Thailand. For me, I’m a fan of the rainy season, and you can find out why in today’s Where Am I Wednesday episode.
