Thailand Weather in May


Check the Weather in Thailand in May before you book your next holiday. This gives the best indication of the weather in May and includes figures for temperature, sunshine and rainfall. The may weather guide shown below is for Bangkok.

The good news is that if you fancy going on holiday in May, you definitely won't have to fly as far as in previous months to find warm rays of sunshine, or even beach friendly weather. It's also early in the European holiday season, so hotels are freshly cleaned and it's generally uncrowded, even though the weather in May means temperatures aren't yet at their peak.
