Sounded nice until I read this from Thailand's offical tourist site. Enjoy the rest of your 'week' of nice weather!

The Thais divide the year into three seasons: the cool season, hot season, and rainy season. For most westerners, this translates to "hot," "really hot," and "really hot and wet." Temperatures rarely drop below 25° C (70° F).

The cool season runs from December to March, although there's usually just one week in December when temperatures are actually comfortable. The heat starts to increase soon after the new year and by April or May it can be almost unbearably hot and humid. During the rainy season the downpours can be extremely heavy, but generally only last for an hour or so in the afternoon.


The rainy season, which coincides with the European and North American summers, is not an entirely bad time to visit. The rain cools down the temperatures a bit and cleans the air quite nicely. With the high temperatures, the rain is not exactly cold. Sometimes it can be like a warm shower. If you do visit during the rainy season, you might want to check out list of suggestions for rainy day activities in Bangkok.

ESP save my ass today. I was in the u-turn lane, and the light turned green. I slightly depressed the accelerator, I was taking the turn at 15 mph....and I fishtailed. I saw the ESP light go off immediately, even before I knew it was slipping. My mom gave me a mouthful for about 5 minutes.

Tires that need to be replaced, wide tires at that aren't the best for winter driving. Oh, all-season, nearly worn, wide tires. :

You want the smallest tire-profile you can get in snow and ice driving. Studdless Winter Tires are really great in this weather!

Don't believe everything you think
