The low season in Thailand is from May to October, when the weather is hot and humid, and there is a higher chance of rain. However, this does not mean that you cannot enjoy your holiday in Thailand during this time. In fact, there are some huge advantages to travelling in the low season that you might not have considered. In this blog post we want to highlight some of these awesome benefits of coming to Phuket and travelling around Thailand during this time of the year.
One of the main benefits of visiting Thailand in the low season is that you can save money on your travel expenses. Flights, hotels, tours, and activities are usually cheaper in the low season than in the high season, which runs from November to April. You can also find more deals and discounts on various websites and apps that offer travel services. At Hilltop Wellness Resort, we’re now offering low season prices on all of our Yoga Holiday and Yoga & Wellness Retreat packages, so this is a great time to book your relaxing yoga holiday in a tropical paradise!
Another benefit of travelling in the low season is that you can avoid the crowds and enjoy more privacy and tranquillity. Thailand attracts millions of tourists every year, especially during the high season, when some places can get very busy and noisy. If you prefer a more relaxed and peaceful atmosphere, you might want to visit Phuket in the low season, when there are fewer tourists around.
A third benefit of visiting Thailand in the low season is that you can experience some unique seasonal events and attractions. For example, here in Phuket, you can witness and take part in the yearly Vegetarian Festival, which takes place in late September or early October. This festival is a celebration of the Chinese community’s beliefs and traditions, and involves colourful processions, ceremonies, and endless amount of vegetarian food stalls, especially in Phuket Town. May to October is also the best surfing season here in Phuket!
You can also enjoy some natural wonders that are more visible in the low season, such as waterfalls, rainforests, and wildlife. Phuket has many waterfalls that are more impressive and refreshing during the rainy season, such as Bang Pae Waterfall and Kathu Waterfall. You can also explore the lush greenery of Khao Phra Thaeo National Park, where you can enjoy the most beautiful nature scenery and spot gibbons and other wildlife.
As you can see, there are many reasons why you should consider visiting Thailand in the low season. You can save money, avoid crowds, and experience some unique aspects of Thai culture and nature. Of course, you should also be prepared for some challenges, such as unpredictable weather, mosquitoes, and limited transportation options. But if you are flexible and adventurous, you will find that Thailand has something to offer all year round.
