Quick destination guide


Australian tourists can stay for up to 30 days without getting a visa if they travel via one of Thailand's international airports or for up to 15 days if coming through a border crossing. If you're intending to stay longer or for purposes other than a holiday then you'll need to apply for a visa. Learn More

When to go

November to February is cooler and normally the best time to visit but also the busiest season. March to May is much warmer and July to October is the rainy season and should be avoided if possible. The seasons are consistent throughout the country except the southern part which does not have a winter.


Dengue Fever can occur in Thailand and is more prominent from May to September during the rainy season. There is no cure so take precautions such as carrying insect repellent (with 30% DEET) and wear long-sleeved and legged clothing. Malaria is prevalent in rural areas, especially on the borders of Cambodia, Laos, and Burma. Learn More

Packing List

Pack a rain jacket for the occasional shower and a pair of sandals that can be easily slipped on and off especially useful when visiting temples. To prevent mosquito bites don't forget your insect repellent! Learn More
