February until around September, March and April are usually hot dry months, June, July and August a bit cooler with occasional showers (a welcome relief sometimes, they tend to be evening showers). October and November are monsoon months, December starting to get better but still iffy.

Hi

It's a a tropical country so rain is to be expected and January is still monsoon season on the Gulf coast. The driest months on Tao tend to be February to April. However weather patterns are changing across the globe and it wasn't too long ago there was flooding in April.

May through to October the rain comes in short bursts, more often than not, in the the afternoon and don't last long. Coming from this side of the world you'll appreciate that weather is very variable and even at the height of summer you can be unlucky and get a week of "bad" weather.

We've been in August three times in a row and have never had a spot of rain (although we have on Samui and Phagnan....)
