What are the temperatures like?:- This is South East Asia so it will always be hot. November through to the end of April will be hot, but a dry heat, not so humid. The rest of the time is classed as rainy season, but to be honest, if it does rain it’ll usually be in the afternoons or early evenings. It’s still very hot, but more humid, and you will still see a lot of the sun.
