Since the weather in Chiang Mai and northern Thailand is hot, bring plenty of lightweight, breathable clothing. However, if traveling during the cool season (December to February), bring light sweaters and a jacket for the colder nights and mountain destinations. Remember that Thais are generally conservative despite any westernized appearances. When visiting temples, palaces, sacred spaces and most public places outside of the beach, cover up.

Here, the sun is relentless. Sunscreen, hats and light, long-sleeved clothing are advisable. Be aware that sunscreen is hard to find in town, so pack plenty. Also bring a small first aid kit and be sure to include insect repellent, a mosquito net, water purification tablets rehydrating solutions, and other pain medications and antibiotics.

Pack plenty of waterproof bags to protect personal belongings from the water. A pocket-sized torch is essential. It may also be a good idea to bring a water bottle and any gear needed for outdoor excursions.

  • Capital – Chiang Mai is the capital of Chiang Mai Province
  • Currency – Baht
  • Language – Thai is the official language and English is widely used
  • Time Zone – GMT + 7 hours

Like the majority of the country, the weather in northern Thailand and Chiang Mai is typically tropical and humid. However, its proximity to the Tropic of Cancer and mountainous topography makes the weather in northern Thailand more agreeable than other parts of Thailand.

The region experiences three distinct seasons – cool, hot and rainy. Chiang Mai is affectionately called the “Cool Capital,” because of its noticeably cooler temperatures than those of Bangkok. December to February is characterized as the cool season, with average daytime temperatures reaching 30°C and cooler nights. In addition to the pleasant weather, the numerous festivals during these months make it the best time to visit.

The hot season runs from April to June. During this time, the weather can be unbearable with high temperatures and extremely high humidity levels. May through November is the rainy season, during which short lasting, but heavy downpours blanket the entire area. Although this can be a pleasant time to visit, the water does attract mosquitoes.
