Many people see monsoon season as a time to avoid Thailand’s beaches, but in popular resorts such as Phuket these months are the cheapest time to visit. Crowds are absent from the beaches and although the wettest months are May, September and October, rarely do the resorts see uninterrupted day-to-day rainfall. So pack your swimming suits, sunglasses and sunscreen and take a flight to Thailand’s top beaches to enjoy the summer time. Here are 5 reasons why you should head to the white sands:
1. Thousands of beaches
In Thailand, you can enjoy more than 8,000 islands and chill out over 2,000 miles of coastline. With fabulous scenes, bars and activities, Thailand’s beaches would suit everyone’s lifestyle.
2. Awesome sunsets
If you are a big fan of romantic movies and want to end your day on a high note, Laem Phromthep, Phuket offers breathtaking scenery. But any stretch of Thailand’s west coast boasts pristine sands and paradise-like sunsets.
3. Thai seafood
Seafood plays a big role in Thailand’s incomparable cuisine. Grilled and steamed dishes are everywhere, but what makes them different are the flavorful Southern Thai herbs and spices. Get your belly ready, an entire ocean will be served on your table!
4. Exploring the underwater world
Have you ever wondered about life underwater? The Andaman Sea on the southern coast of Thailand is a terrific place for snorkeling and scuba diving. Enjoy unforgettable experiences while exploring vibrant coral reefs and admiring colourful marine life.
5. Quality accommodation
Thailand offers a myriad range of accommodations, from five-star hotels to budget-friendly hostels, or beach camping for those adventure seekers.
Getting to a beach in Thailand can be done with many of the Thai carriers via Bangkok such as Air Asia, Nok Air or from next month with MNA´s direct flight to Phuket from where many boats depart.
