Hua Hin Weather & Climate

Hua Hin Information

The average daily temperature in Hua Hin, Cha-Am and Pranburi is remarkably consistent throughout the year. It varies from a low of 25.6° Celsius in January to a high of 29.9° in April and May. There is a much greater variation in the amount of rain. The average is 4.1mm in January and slightly over 200mm in October and November. Generally speaking, the best time of the year to visit is December through February when temperatures are relatively low and only occasional rain showers occur.

Hua Hin is usually pleasant at any time of the year though, even during the monsoon (rainy) season as there is usually a break in the rain at some time during the day. In fact, the rain never lasts very long, and the skies clear within minutes afterwards. Another advantage of visiting in the rainy season is that there are less visitors and better hotel rates. Being very popular with weekend visitors from Bangkok, weekends can get a little bit crowdy throughout the year though, especially in Hua Hin. Cha-Am and Pranburi is more peaceful then, since hotels and resorts are spread out far from each other.

If you’re especially adverse to extreme heat, avoid between April and May when the weather is especially hot and sticky with temperatures around 34° Celsius. However, don't fret if you do choose to come then: one of Thailand's most celebrated festivals, Songkran (the Thai New Year or Water Festival), takes place in the second week of April, and involves lots of refreshing water-throwing to help cool everyone down.

What to Wear

Forget tight pants and clinging dresses (at least during the day) and go for light, loose cotton clothing. When visiting temples, remember to dress appropriately. Shorts, singlets, spaghetti straps and open-backed sandals are not suitable. For the most part, these are beach destinations where visitors dress casually, day or night. It is wise though to go for natural fabrics instead of synthetics – the latter which can cause the body to sweat more in hot and humid weather conditions.

Traveller’s Tips

You won’t be needing any warm clothes, but any seasoned traveler will tell you that it’s always wise to pack at least one warm item of clothing. Air-conditioned areas can sometimes be a bit chilly – especially if your body is warm after spending some time outdoors in the sun. Also remember to pack an umbrella (the type that folds up small) or a light raincoat that can be folded small. These are always good and easy to carry in your day-pack, especially if you’re heading here during the rainy season.

No matter what time of the year you’re planning to visit the area, the moderate climate and temperatures of Hua Hin, Cha-Am and Pranburi are perfectly suited for a memorable beach holiday experience.
