If you fancy a luxury holiday away from the busy resorts of mainland Europe, then head to Southeast Asia in summer and you’ll enjoy a great climate and plenty of sunshine. The Southeast Asia weather in June is warm and pleasant, especially around popular resorts in Vietnam, Thailand, Malaysia and Philippines. Expect to catch some tropical showers, though.
1. The weather of Southeast Asia in June
June is still a good month to travel in Vietnam despite it being a slightly mixed bag in terms of weather. The centre of Vietnam has now hit peak temperatures and remains dry and bright. The south is now in the midst of the wet season with daily downpours to be expected, usually in the afternoon, whilst the north is well into summer mode with high temperatures and rain being the norm. Visitor numbers are relatively low and the central beaches still promise a great deal of sunshine. Trekking is off the cards for most, with more rain spreading through the northern mountains & central highlands.
By June rain can be expected throughout Cambodia. Temperatures remain high (avg temp: 28°C), and humidity can reach 70% during the day. However, the short, heavy showers help break the humidity making life a little more comfortable.
- The Philippines
By June, the wet season is well underway throughout most of the Philippines, with heavy rainfall expected across the majority of the country. The southern islands of Bohol, Cebu, and Siargao whilst not completely dry, experience less rain than the northern and central regions. On a more positive note, the rains bring with them some attractive changes to the landscape: by now the famous Chocolate Hills of Bohol no longer have their distinctive brown colouration but will have turned a shade of green and the rice terraces of Banaue are at their greenest.
- Laos The wet season is in full swing throughout Laos in June, although showers tend to be short and intense, lasting for a few hours rather than all-day downpours. Temperatures hover around the mid to high 20’s.
Whilst far from guaranteed, there is a reasonable chance of rain throughout much of Thailand in June. Temperatures remain high (avg temp: 29-31°C) and, at least initially, the rain is likely to come in the form of short downpours, with periods of good weather expected throughout much of the day.
Favourable diving conditions can be enjoyed across the Indonesian islands in June: expect clear, warm waters and an abundance of marine life, especially in the Komodo National Park and around the Gili Islands.
In June, the east coast of peninsula Malaysia continues to enjoy plenty of sunny dry days, along with perfect sea conditions for snorkelling and diving. The west coast islands will be experiencing hot and humid conditions, along with heavy downpours but these are usually short-lived and can bring welcome relief to the humidity.
