Even though May is not known as the driest month of the year I could not complain. I was in Pattaya for the past two weeks with around 34 to 35 degrees during the day, and no less than 28 degrees on the thermometer at night. Both day and night it was oppressively hot, and cooling from both sea and pool was not really there, which were also of high temperature. I had my cooling moment at the air conditioner in my room.— This text has been automatically translated into English

Left last week of April for 18 days. Was a round trip. First 3 days Bangkok only had sun. Hot but you get used to it quickly. Via Bangkok to Khao Sok. Fine temperature, sun alternating with clouds, some wind but no rain. From Khao Sok to Kho Phan nang. We had beautiful weather on the island. Sometimes a short shower at night and that was about it. For 18 days we had warm sunny weather with some cloudy days in the afternoon, which was also nice. In short, we had great travel weather!— This text has been automatically translated into English
