Thailand Travel Maps

Thailand shares the borders with Laos, Cambodia, Myanmar. The outstanding features of Thailand’s topography are high mountains, a central plain, and a highland region. Mountains occupy much of northern Thailand and extend along the Myanmar border across the Kra Strait and the Malay Peninsula. The central plain is a lowland area formed by the Chao Phraya River and its tributaries, the main river system of the country, which flows into the delta at the head of Bangkok Bay. The Chao Phraya River system occupies about a third of the national territory. In the northeast of the country is the Khorat Plateau, a lightly undulating area with low hills and shallow lakes, which feeds into the Mekong via the Mun River. The River system that empties into the South China Sea consists of a series of canals and dams.

Thailand’s climate is influenced by monsoons with seasonal characteristics (southwest monsoon and northeast monsoon). The northeast monsoon, which starts from October to February, brings Thailand’s coldest and driest air from China. In southern Thailand, the northeast monsoon brings warm weather and plenty of rain on the coast east.

Thailand has 4 distinct seasons:

  • Dry season: From January to February
  • Hot season: From March to May
  • Rainy season: From June to October
  • Cool season: From November to December

The average temperature of Thailand’s weather is usually from 32 degrees Celsius in December and up to 35 degrees Celsius in April every year.
