What's the CHA AM weather like ?

What's the CHA AM weather like ? hThis is the question everyone asks! So to give you a clearer picture, here are a few facts.Petchburi has a tropical climate that is warm the whole year round averaging temperatures of around 29C . There are two distinct seasons with a few minor variations in-between. Many people visit in the high season (November to March) because of pleasant temperatures, blue skies and low rainfall. As a result the beach is quite busy and everything is a little more expensive. Hotels and tours can be quite crowded and the beach is not quite so laid back. During April till mid-May, it begins to heat up to around 34C and there are often heavy showers for a few day in the late afternoons be for the Thai New Year (Songkran Festival) occurs on April 13th and everyone sprinkles (or throws) cool water on each other. This quickly gives way to cooler temperatures and rain showers from late May until November (the monsoon season).

     Visiting CHA AM in the monsoon season has lots of advantages. Temperatures average a comfortable 29/30C and light warm winds make sightseeing tours very pleasant. During the monsoon season,it doesn't rain every day!

     The usual weather pattern is for short dramatic showers, with plenty of sunshine in between, providing an opportunity to chat with the locals while you're waiting for the rain to pass. June, July and August are particularly pleasant. Activities and trips remain totally unaffected. You can still go swimming, fishing or boating and the beach is less busy and more relaxed. There are some great deals on hotel rates and much better shopping bargains.

Finally, remember that this is after all a tropical climate, so its never cold and the sun is always.
