Too hot in March?Hey there,
actually i thought about making Thailand this march, but seems too hot there.
I really want to travel through the whole country, so it seems to be quite struggling...
Anyone with proper information about that?
Cheers and regards,

2The north is often the hottest in March with high temps and stagnant air, but last year some early rains cooled things off. The southern beaches at least get sea breezes that take the edge off. Bangkok can be an oven combining heat and intense traffic. There are ways to make it easier on yourself like doing more activities mornings and evenings while escaping the midday heat, take aircon taxis instead of walking, if walking at least favour the shady side of the road or carry a parasol, drink tons of water, take it easy keep a cool head/heart and don't get worked-up, etc. It's bearable if you allow it to be - watch the locals.

9Cambodia is leaving Thailand behind in the dust. Tourists and expats have given up on Thailand for numerous reasons. And i can,t say i really blame them. But like anywhere in Southeast Asia it is getting over run with tourists. Sadly of the worst kind. Thailand offers a wide variety of locals ? Not sure what that means.

11Well, thanks again!
Than i guess it would be an option to step to cambodia for Siem Reap while going through northern thailand.
@state49: What do you mean by "numerous reasons"?

13OP, depending on where you currently are, or are used to, and guessing by your post, Thailand in the day time will be HOT. In the cooler months it can be cooler in the evenings and mornings, but by lunchtime the heat is back.
Do what we all do; drink water, stay in the shade or wear a sunhat, or even copy the Thais an use an umbrella as a sunscreen! when outside, use air-con in the hotel, or take a swim, go to a mall, go to a restaurant, etc.
The hot March shouldn't deter a visit to this amazing country. The north will also be some degrees cooler than the south, but offers no beaches for a relaxing swim.

14Well, right now I have degrees below zero! So i guess the first days i should be careful and slowly, for acclimatization.
But i won't stay in hotels or malls etc. I want to travel and see the country. Therefore i will be outside most of the time. But i guess this should be possible, according to you.
