Chiang Mai In October???
Hi guys I'm thinking about a trip to chiang mai start of October and was wondering a few things about goin then like what's the weather normally like? Many tourists about? Are the gyms generally busy? Etc etc, just some general feedback really
Was there in september and october. For me it was the best period, if you go to Pai or mae hong son on a motorcycle trip everything is beatiful and green due to the rain season that just ended. You might still get some rain from time to time. In the dry season everthing looks yellow and dead. I did not notice much difference in the number of tourist between september and lets say februari. Maybe I just didnt pay attention
End of rainy season. Quiet. Not quite tourist season but possible rains. A good time of the year to go.
Tourists 24/7 as Chiang Mai is pretty much a tourist town these days.
Thanks guys, the rain doesn't worry me so that's ok, Octobers just before peak season isn't it?
yep it is
oh and I don't know if you have been in Thailand before but I can tell the rain will bother you,
rain means not being able to go outside and flooding of the streets
Yes, all the old ex pats that used to flood in Phuket, pattaya 15 years ago have migrated to Chingmai to escape the Russian take over. Ching mai used to be a college town, now turned tourist city
Still most tourists look like hippies but I noticed alot of Chinese also last time I was there
Ok thanks guys, so start of October should be sweet or mayb change it to the end of October/start of November?
i would go for the start of october -> everything nice fresh andgreen and a little less tourists...
Start of October is better so you can watch things change as the number of shitheads increases over the course of the month and all the Thais start hiking up how much baht their prices are.
Thanks guys, start of October sounds good to me, give me time to save abit up
october will be good. rain season over, just a little rain at night some days, from my expirience (but its easy to find that out exactly, just use internet)
tourist season not started. peak is december. gyms not too busy. overall great time. for me november and february used to be my favorite time in Thailand, but I enjoyed the months between as well. and october. but not march-april, hot. very hot.
Johnny, I experienced 15 degrees at night in CM in march april, my wife and I were fighting for the blanket, and then, next day it could be 40 degrees again, really weird.
