Hua Hin Climate and Weather
The climate Hua Hin in generally tropical with three distinct seasons, cool from November to February, hot from March to June, and rainy from July to October.
Due its special microclimate induced by geographic factors, Hua Hin is drier and sunnier than surrounding destinations in Thailand. Hua Hin was originally an escape for the King and the Royal Family from the heat and humity of pre-air-condition rainy-season Bangkok.
Nevertheless, humidity is much higher than non-tropical travel destinations, even in the cool dry season in the Northern hemisphere winter. It is therefore advisable to book an air-conditioned hotel room, if just to have the option to get the humidity out of the air.
As for the rainy season, this term only means that it may rain occasionally, in tropical fashion in short bursts while the air warm and balmy. The rainy season is absolutely a fine time to travel to Hua Hin. Hardly an activity will be spoiled by the weather, not even a round of golf.
The evenings in Hua Hin especially pleasant with a balmy sea breeze and T-Shirt temperatures of just over 20 degrees celsius.
Seasons in Hua Hin
The cool season, which also happens to be dry, lasts from November until February. The nights, especially at beach resorts, can be quite cool and a light jacket may be advised for dinner in the open air. Still, there is absolutely no need to bring any winter clothes for a holiday in this region of Thailand (unlike the North of Thailand).
The temperatures start rising daily from about mid-February. Daytime highs are now well over 30 degrees celsius and nighttime lows are in the higher twenties (80s Fahrenheit). This makes an air-conditioned room mandatory even when staying in a beachside villa. Showers can occur during the hot season and they get somewhat more frequent after the Songkran festival (mid-April).
The rains get more steady in June and are a daily occurrence in July. However, due to geographic intricacies the rains are less frequent and less heavy in Hua Hin than at other beach destinations in Thailand. During these months Hua Hin really feels tropical with lush green and spectacular cloud formations a daily occurrence. And this is a what a tropical holiday is about as Hua Hin is quieter, cheaper and has more of an "insider feel" to it during theses months.
