Green Season (May – Oct)
This time of year things quite down, the wind changes direction and with it brings some rain to the whole Andaman coast form the Indian ocean.
The whole island transforms from dry and dusty to wet and lush green.
Accommodation prices drop and some great apartments and villas become available to rent at amazing value!
This is potentially a great time of year for someone who wants good value for money living on a tropical Thai island, if you want less distractions and don’t mind a day of rain here or there!
KoHub will be open, so there will plenty of fellow KoHubbers around. Also you can get the whole beach to yourself!
Dry Season (Nov – Apr)
Things start to pick up in high season, the weather will slowly start to change and by November we will see endless days of glorious sunshine.
With the weather brings tourism – room prices will rise and availability will drop, making it harder to find a good deal.
There is always somewhere to stay if you have the budget and some good local bargains can be found.
October/November is a good time to turn up to find a long term apartment deal, especially for those that want to stay for many months through high season.
Peak Season (Dec – Jan)
For a few weeks, especially Christmas and New Years Koh Lanta becomes very busy, finding a place to stay can be hard at this time, so book ahead It’s still a fun time of year to be on the Island, however if you plan to be here over this period for a long stay, make sure you find a place early. Options can be limited.
KoHub stays open all year round.
