I’m sure most of you would agree that weather and seasons are the two most important parameters to consider while planning a vacation. On that note, the weather in Thailand in November is tranquil and soothing. It begins to become chilly throughout the country as the rainy season has just ended. Although the southern peninsula of Thailand may experience a spell of rainfall, it spans not more than five days. Hence, you would experience splendid weather during this month. The temperature in central Thailand is around 20°C during this time of the year. November also marks the beginning of the peak season wherein tourists gradually start flying in.

Crowd and Expenses in Thailand in November

Considering November is the shoulder season in Thailand, the crowd gradually escalates by the end of the month. During the rainy season as there’s no much crowd, the cities are ghosted. The ghost town feels slowly fades away especially in the Central and Northern parts of the country during this month. However, the months that follow have more crowd inflow, than in November.

Naturally, when the inflow of tourists increases as the peak season begins, there’s a surge in the costs as well. Depending on the place and type of hotel you prefer to stay in, the cost will vary. However, some of the less explored places would still offer a better deal in November.
