Thailand in July 2023 – A Complete Guide to a Fun Thailand Trip

Thailand is a tropical country with a lot of sun and rains most of the time. While the summer months are hot, humid, and ideal for tanning, the monsoon season brings the country’s scenery. Although Thailand’s rainy season runs from August to November, light rains are typical in May, June, and July.

July might be a pleasant month to visit but one should be prepared for rain. It’s the middle of the rainy season, the southwest monsoons bring heavy rains and thunderstorms to most of the country. On the positive side, there are fewer people and the costs are lower. The rain also makes the land lush and beautiful, providing ideal circumstances for collecting durian fruit.

Weather in Thailand in July

The northern section of the nation, as well as the southwest coast beaches, receives the greatest rain, with around 18 wet days per month in Chiang Mai and around 16 to 17 rainy days around the coastline. Phuket and the islands of the Andaman Sea are wetter, whilst the Gulf of Thailand’s region surrounding Ko Samui and Hua Hin are normally dryer. The weather is scorching throughout, with nighttime lows around 75 degrees and daily highs near 90 degrees.

Heavy rains will make trekking difficult in Chiang Rai and the Golden Triangle region; nonetheless, the land will be more green and lush, and rivers and waterfalls will be in full flow.

In July, the islands of Koh Chang and Koh Kood are extremely wet in terms of beaches. Rough waves may be encountered off the west coast, and on the beaches of Phuket, Krabi, and Khao Lak. They have a far higher probability of torrential downpours than the east coast beaches of Koh Samui, Khanom, and Koh Pha Ngan, which are substantially drier and continue to enjoy continuous sunny periods. The month of July is very popular for diving on Koh Tao.
