Meditation retreats and temples across Thailand
I am unaccustomed to very hot, humid climate and wonder when would be the most comfortable time of year for being there about 3 months. Any suggestions you may have for me? Sorry for the late reply. The most comfortable 3 month period would be Nov-Jan in my opinion. November will start out quite warm still, and may possibly be a bit rainy.
