In Thailand, the weather from February until May is considered to be the hottest. The temperatures are usually above 30C (above 90F) and many young backpackers just wander around shirtless showing their white pecs (and beer belly) to all the single ladies out there (go home, please).
However, in the past few days, Thailand has been experiencing a strange weather and it’s been raining for 3 days in a row with temperatures as low as 13C (55F). A mysterious 5m wave has also capsized a tourist boat on one of the islands in the South.
Young backpackers had to put on shirts and fleeces and are looking all grumpy because of the rain.
Some blame the Global Warming, some mention the slight shift in Earth’s axis after the Japan earthquake, others swear it’s an alien conspiracy or accuse Al Qaeda.
Whatever the real cause, it’s been really cold and I’m even wearing socks at home!
When you are planning a photo-outing, check the weather forecast in the local media as soon as you arrive so you can make plans for sunny, cloudy, or rainy days. Every day is good for photos, you just have to change your plan.
