hi we are looking to visit in April is this a good time to come over
I hope so! I'll be out there then too!
Depends when in April as Songkran ( Thai New Year) starts on 13th April unless you enjoy getting soaked during the celebrations.
Oooh new year awesome!!! Will b there 13th - 30th
Very hot and humid
April is a good time to be near the ocean (or a swimming pool) to cool off after getting fried in the peak hot season. Bring extra SPF lotion and a big floppy hat.
Would you say it is better in Feburary or are the tempatures around the same as we want to get around and visit places
February is 'cooler' (slightly less humid) but as you coming from the UK it's going to feel hot and humid to you whatever time of the year you come!
I wouldn't choose Feb vs. April weather as a definitive deciding factor. Feb nights might be cooler by a few degrees and April days will likely be hotter. If you're aiming for a sunny beach holiday and escape UK winter I'd say February which is usually ideal dry/moderately warm season. April is also good but can get some pre-monsoon "summer storms" and gets busy during Songkran (mid-April Thai New Year).
We visited in April a couple of years and it was super hot. No rain at all, just hot,humid and sunny every day. Enjoy.
