Most Thais are suckers for cold weather, since it’s like taking a holiday from the everyday heat and humidity of Thailand.
They don’t want it too cold though. They just can’t take it. Check out these photos of a cold spell in January when people were literally driving motorbikes and showering in their blankets — that’s how cold they were.

Hallelujah! Time to dust off that coat you got on sale last year and let it makes its debut in Bangkok!

Thailand will be at its coldest in December until the middle of January.
They say that there will also be heavy rainfalls in November and December, but only on the Eastern coast, reported Thai PBS.
