After all, if you are an adventurous traveler, then you will definitely be certain that the climate can affect the quality of your stay. If you are not adequately prepared for the climate, then you might have a difficult time with just your body to adjust to the temperature and the humidity changes. However, if you are well prepared, then you may be able to take everything in stride and end up having and awesome time.

As you might already know, Thailand has a very interesting climate. It is hot. And by hot, we mean insanely hot. Any given day in Bangkok may present you with ninety three degree (Fahrenheit) heat. In addition, there is a lot of humidity in Thailand. This is because it is in the Southeast Asia region of the world. This region is known for being close to the equator as well as close to the Pacific and Indian oceans. This results in hot air that evaporates a lot of water, causing many heavy rains (think about the monsoon season). Consequently, the air is incredibly humid, often in the 80-90% region.

Preparation
