Apart from sometimes extreme rainfall and dry seasons, there are hardly any restrictions on the travel time to Chiang Mai due to the weather. Many of the events and festivals that promise attractive recreational activities during the recreational holidays take place during the dry season from November to February. For excursions, city explorations and relaxed tours, good climatic conditions are available during this time, even for more sensitive travellers. On the other hand, the monsoon rains, which are typical during the rainy season, are not only detrimental to recreation because of the limited visibility of natural beauty, but the humidity during this time is only bearable for healthy people. But those who do not want to share their holiday with too many other holiday makers can, despite the weather, switch to the (still very warm) low season in spring and autumn. If you are not sensitive to high temperatures and increased humidity, you only need to consider the dry season when planning an active holiday in Chiang Mai. From December to March, the possibilities for trekking and rafting may be limited. In all other months only the weather (temporarily) limits the pleasure of trekking, rafting or elephant trekking. However, especially in the summer months from April to July, in addition to the rainfall, travellers must take into account the temperatures, which sometimes rise to over 40 degrees Celsius at peak times. Longer or physically demanding tours during this time can only be managed with above-average fitness.
