The Best Time to Visit Koh Chang


Koh Chang

Southeast Thailand only really has two seasons, a dry period that runs from November to May and a wet season from June to October. Thai people hold that there are actually three seasons and call the period from November to December the cool season. However in this case 'cool' means daily maximums averaging around 30C.



The season after this until the beginning of the monsoon in June is justly termed the hot season since temperatures slowly rise up to the high thirties. Humidity is very high and even the locals start to feel the heat.

The busiest period for visitors to Koh Chang is December to April and there is very little rain during these months although brief, extremely localised and torrential showers are not uncommon as the temparature and humidity rises.

The Monsoon

It can rain heavily in the wet season but rainfall is by no means constant. Indeed sunny days are still common.

All of the resorts and facilities on Koh Chang remain open and this can be a good time to visit for those seeking a quieter holiday.

The pattern in recent years has been for the monsoon to be lless intense than in previous years. Of course there is still rain, and when it rains it really pours down. But there are lots of weeks when there is little or no rainfall and the sun shines all day.

Winds

During the monsoon the prevailing winds are onshore on the West Coast and can bring quite high waves to the beaches. Swimming at this time is considered quite dangerous due to very strong rip tides. In the dry season the winds are onshore on the East Coast. Indeed this change in the prevailing wind signals the end of the monsoon and is eagerly awaited.

The best time for sailing is probably from the end of the Monsoon until January when the winds are pretty constant from the East. From mid January the winds tend to be light and variable and only pick up again from the West once the Monsoon sets in again around May.

Tides

Koh Chang has just one tide per day. Actually it is two but the second is almost imperceptible. The term is diurnal for the scientifically inclined.

The tide is in for most of the daytime during the dry season and changes in the monsoon season when it is in most of the night. The highest tides are in November, December and January and are usually 4 days after the full and new moons.
