As far as travel destinations go, let’s be honest, weather is one of the most important factors. In Kanchanaburi, it would dishonest to say that the weather is great all of the time, after all, it does have a monsoon season. However, with that said, the temperate climate is unlike any other in the world.
Nestled between two major climate zones, Kanchanaburi has a number of different weather conditions that makes it unique. On one hand, you have the lush green jungles that harbor some of the most unique wildlife in the world, and on the other hand you have tropical beaches that attract thousands of visitors per year.
Kanchanaburi has something for everyone in terms of climate, which is just one of its many charms.
But what about monsoon season?
In Kanchanburi, monsoon season typically lasts most of the summer and some of the fall. During these months, the town, and rest of the country can see high winds and rainfall due to violent weather systems.
And while this may seem scary to visitors, it is important to remember that this weather is crucial to creating the unique geographical conditions that contribute to the town’s biodiversity.
Having heard many accounts of visitors visiting during monsoon season, the overwhelming response was that it was still a very positive experience. Think of the monsoons not as violent hurricanes, but summer storms that help Thailand maintain what makes it one of the true gems of the world.
