High season (or cool season) starts in November and can last all the way to March. During the high season there is hardly any rainfall. This period is the best time to visit Koh Mak. You can expect sunshine and no rain almost everyday. This is because of the northeast monsoon from central Asia which brings Thailand relatively cool and dry conditions.
