Because of prevailing weather conditions, it is usually recommended to avoid Phuket and its surrounding areas during June. The good news is that there is no shortage of beaches in the country. The Gulf of Thailand is home to Hua Hin as well as islands as diverse as Koh Samui and Koh Phi Phi. Therefore, there are plenty of opportunities to go snorkeling or scuba diving. Bangkok can still be visited during a trip to Thailand in June, so you will not miss out on attractions including the Royal Grand Palace and the Temple of the Reclining Buddha (Wat Pho). Jungles across the north of the country are now lush and hiking trails are manageable despite showers, which means highlights such as Pam Bok Waterfall, Doi Suthep Mountain, and Chiang Mai’s night bazaar are within reach.
