Best Times To Travel Chiang Rai

A holiday in Chiang Rai provides a fantastic look into Thai life, 785 kilometers away from Bangkok and situated on the Kok River it is home to several traditional hill tribes. There are three main seasons with the cool season beginning in late October, the hot summer season is between March and May and Monsoon season is between May and October.

The best time to visit is usually during the cool season as temperatures during the summer can be very warm and the cooler season sees a more pleasant and ambient range of temperatures. The wide range of hiking and trekking options sees many of the tropical and unusual flowers in bloom during the cooler months and the stunning scenery is at its best at this time of year.

Various special events happen throughout the year and these are a great time to enjoy some traditional celebrations such as the Chiang Rai Songkran festival in April with boat races along the river and the Lychee Fair in May where you can buy hand made crafts and sample local foods.
