You only have so much time and money for your vacation–you want to make sure you’re visiting your destination during the best window possible. However, not only does each region have its own weather patterns, but there are microclimates within each country, as well. Do you know the best season, climate, temperature, and amount of rainfall (or snow!) based on your favorite activities? And what about peak season–do you really want to go when the area is most heavily touristed, often resulting in inflated prices?
We have compiled your ultimate resource, gathering temperature information and rainfall averages to determine when is the absolute best time to visit certain regions, including different states of Cambodia, Indonesia, Thailand and Vietnam.
