From popular festivals to just a simple holiday, Chiang Mai has a season and occasion that’ll appeal to all.
We’ve found the best times to visit Chiang Mai based on your itinerary and budget.
February and November are the best times to visit Chiang Mai, Thailand.
These months are before and after peak tourist season when the weather is cooler and at its best. During these months you’ll find fewer crowds, cheaper accommodation and the chance to catch festivals like Loy Krathong in November and the flower festival in February.
If you can, avoid flying to Chiang Mai during the peak tourist season in December/January to get the best price.
From November to early February winter brings the best weather with cool, pleasant temperatures. It’s prime tourist season so prices are at their peak.
Mid-late February until late April is the hot, dry season with minimal rain and bad air pollution. Prices also spike around the Thai New Year in April.
The rainy season is late April until late October. It’s humid but with cooler temperatures and the rain doesn’t impact too much as showers are usually quick.
Being the months when temperatures peak without the reprieve of a sea breeze like the tourist hotspots in Southern Thailand, late April until late October draws the least amount of tourists, so accommodation and flight prices drop.
finder.com.au is one of Australia's leading comparison websites. We compare from a wide set of banks, insurers and product issuers. We value our editorial independence and follow editorial guidelines.
finder.com.au has access to track details from the product issuers listed on our sites. Although we provide information on the products offered by a wide range of issuers, we don't cover every available product or service.
Please note that the information published on our site should not be construed as personal advice and does not consider your personal needs and circumstances. While our site will provide you with factual information and general advice to help you make better decisions, it isn't a substitute for professional advice. You should consider whether the products or services featured on our site are appropriate for your needs. If you're unsure about anything, seek professional advice before you apply for any product or commit to any plan.
Products marked as 'Promoted' or 'Advertisement' are prominently displayed either as a result of a commercial advertising arrangement or to highlight a particular product, provider or feature. Finder may receive remuneration from the Provider if you click on the related link, purchase or enquire about the product. Finder's decision to show a 'promoted' product is neither a recommendation that the product is appropriate for you nor an indication that the product is the best in its category. We encourage you to use the tools and information we provide to compare your options.
Where our site links to particular products or displays 'Go to site' buttons, we may receive a commission, referral fee or payment when you click on those buttons or apply for a product. You can learn more about how we make money here.
When products are grouped in a table or list, the order in which they are initially sorted may be influenced by a range of factors including price, fees and discounts; commercial partnerships; product features; and brand popularity. We provide tools so you can sort and filter these lists to highlight features that matter to you.
We try to take an open and transparent approach and provide a broad-based comparison service. However, you should be aware that while we are an independently owned service, our comparison service does not include all providers or all products available in the market.
Some product issuers may provide products or offer services through multiple brands, associated companies or different labelling arrangements. This can make it difficult for consumers to compare alternatives or identify the companies behind the products. However, we aim to provide information to enable consumers to understand these issues.
Providing or obtaining an estimated insurance quote through us does not guarantee you can get the insurance. Acceptance by insurance companies is based on things like occupation, health and lifestyle. By providing you with the ability to apply for a credit card or loan, we are not guaranteeing that your application will be approved. Your application for credit products is subject to the Provider's terms and conditions as well as their application and lending criteria.
