Rain will now be a distant memory across much of Thailand with bright weather more the order of the day. Temperatures remain relatively low across the north (avg temp: 23 - 25°C) with Bangkok and the centre a couple of degrees higher.
For beach lovers, the best weather will be on the western side of the peninsular (avg temp: 26 - 29°C) although rainfall is also sharply decreasing on the east (avg temp: 26 - 28°C) meaning that by Christmas you can choose your island freely.
At this time of year water levels are high in coastal areas. This reduces the depth of the beach at times with some shallow bays losing sight of the sand altogether.
