The weather in Thailand is reasonable most times of year, although it certainly gets hot during the summer! November through February are the coolest times of year and there is certainly less rain then than at other times in the year. However, Thailand is a big country with a diverse landscape. There is somewhere to visit whatever time of the year you visit the kingdom.
The best time of year (with the most comfortable climate) for visiting most of Thailand falls between November and March - during these months it rains the least and is not too hot. Remember that the temperatures are less dramatic in the south, so the south makes a good refuge when the rest of Thailand is miserably hot (April to June).
The North is best from mid-November to December or in February when it begins warming up again. If you're spending time in Bangkok, be prepared to roast in April and do some flood-water wading in October - these are probably the worst two months to visit the Capital.
The peak months for tourism are August, November, December, February and March, with secondary peak months in January and July. You should consider travelling during the least crowded months (April, May, June, September and October) if your main objective is to avoid holiday makers and to take advantage of discounted rooms and other low-season rates. On the other hand it's not difficult to leave the crowds behind, even during the peak months, if you simply avoid some of the most popular destinations (eg. Chiang Mai and all islands and beaches).
