Weather in Thailand in April

April is when the Thailand temperatures start to rise a little. The weather can be anywhere between 35°C and 40°C in the top-visited cities of Bangkok and Chiang Mai. April is even considered the hottest month of the year. It is also considered the onset month of the monsoon season in the Kingdom of Thailand. The effect of this is observed in places like Phuket and the neighbouring cities on the Andaman coast. The positive here is that the clouds clear out fast and expect to have at least 6 hours of sunshine, unlike other countries during their monsoon season. You also might have to keep a lookout for smoke and fog. This is the result of the sugar fields burnt by farmers. Everywhere north to Kra Isthmus might get foggy and hazy.
