what do you think of going there at that time of year ? Any advice would be great, i have only been to south Thailand. thanks
July is fine. You will find it hot - December and January are the cooler months. Try to choose a place with a pool if you can. You will find it does rain - and it can be heavy - but more than likely heavy tropical downpours that don't last.
There has been a lot of rain over the last six weeks.
I have been to northern Thailand, both Chiang Rai and Chiang Mai, in July. We had some downpours, usually in the late afternoon, which lasted for 30 to 60 minutes. The weather was hot, but it wasn't as hot as other times of the year when I have been to Chiang Rai.
We didn't find the down pours to deter our travels at all. We usually just planned to duck into a retaurant or a late afternoon beverage or get a foot massage at that time.
I would get a hotel with a pool during that time of year.
