If you plan to visit Thailand for your vacation and you find that Thailand has Thunderstorm everyday, you MUST NOT CHANGE YOUR PLAN!!
Thunderstorm in Thailand is not like what you have seen in New York, Washington or England. In Thailand, everyday is mostly sunny. Thunderstorm will happen at night, beginning at 5-6PM; and it is not longer than 3 hours. Almost raining is about 2 hours. So you can have a lot of time at noon to travel around Thailand.
If you are in Thailand, you can know the thunderstorm before it happens for 1 hour. You have to have a compass with you, and you look at the South West of the sky. Regular round cloud does not cause the rain. The only cloud that that cause the thunderstorm is 100-story-skyscraper cloud. You will see it about 5PM, and it will rain at 6PM. If you understand all this, you do not have to carry an umbrella for whole day. Sw Eden is Thai, and Sw Eden do not carry any umbrella, too.
Hey hey Ken Zi:Kill is not Thai, so he have to carry the umbrella. 😀
The best time to take a tour in Thailand is in the Winter. Most of foreigners who visit Thailand are from colder countries. Thai winter is not that hot as summer. Some people said that Thailand has 4 seasons, are Hot, Hotter, Hottest and Hot Water (rain). In fact, we are the super cool country!! Sw Eden means Thailand is so interesting. Most of the winter day, you will not see any thunderstorm. You can also have a good time with photography in this season, because the shade and shadow are so shape. Winter does not have much cloud. You will see clear-light-blue sky back of your view. Sw Eden loves winter in Thailand a lot. The only thing Sw Eden hates is that Sw Eden does not have a water heater at home, so it is so cold when Sw Eden takes a bath! But you can have a good time with hot bath in every hotel and apartment (All have water heaters).
**If you feel that some swindlers try to bring you into their tour, you can ask me about the trip and its price.
