Like most of Thailand, the seasons are marked by rainfall rather than temperature changes. May through September is the monsoon season, when 26-30 cm of rain falls per month. The daily highs are usually 30-32°C, while nightly lows are 23-25°C, except in December and November, when 14°C is typical.
Getting There & Around
Langkawi and Hatyai International Airports are both about 50 km from Satun and reachable by minivan, bus or taxi. You can also take a train from Bangkok or Hatyai and finish the trip by bus. There are several express buses that drop passengers at the Satun Tammalang Pier, where they can catch a songtheaw or ferry to Satun.
It is possible to drive in the area, but cheap minivan and songtheaw taxis are quite abundant.« Hide
