Seasons in Southeast Asia
Despite its relatively compact size, Southeast Asia has a varied climate that matches its varied geography though it could be said that the region experiences two distinct seasons - the wet and the dry. The southwest monsoon typically hits the region between June and September when many countries experience high rainfall and the vegetation blooms in verdant green.
The dry season between November and February is considered the better time to travel with drier and slightly cooler weather. The hottest time of the year is usually between March and June when humidity levels rise in preparation for the oncoming rains.
