Weather

The Maha monsoon blows from October to January, bringing rain to the North and East, while the dry season is from May to September. The North and East (i.e. the Cultural Triangle) are comparatively dry, with around 1000mm of rain annually. There is also an inter-monsoonal period in October and November when rain can occur in many parts of the island. Out-of-season travel has its advantages – not only do the crowds go away but many airfares and accommodation prices drop right down. Nor does it rain all the time during the low season.
