How to do and what to expect if travel in Thailand in July

June is a pretty good month to travel in Thailand. Heat become moderate in most part of the country and though it is in the monsoon season but rain is not really a big concern except in Ko Chang and the Andaman coast.

The heat and humidity is moderate enough for trekking though paths can be more slippery and muddy due to rains from last two months. You may get wet. You may and will get muddy. But that's to be expected - you're in a tropical jungle after all!  Biking overland or around the places also recommended if do not mind the tropical sun or sometime rains.

In general, loose fitting dress is appropriate for the weather. Drink enough water and do not expose too much to the sun. An umbrella or light poncho is needed when you travel around if you do not want to get wet because of sudden showers.

If you do plan trekking the good trekking shoes are absolutely needed.

This time sees places in the country less touristy so, this is an advantage you can take and good promotion is another thing to think about.

In general the rain starts to bring out some of the natural beauty. Waterfalls in now become impressive with their strength, the lush scenery now returns to the country and boat cruise and river rafting are proved to be more fun.

If you want to find sun, sea and sand then beaches on the east coast and island like Koh Samui, Koh Pha Ngan and Koh Tao are your best choices.
