October through to January is the cool season in NE Thailand. The weather is perfect temperatures going down to 16-17 C at night and rising to 26-28 C during the day. Us Australians love it to escape the blistering heat of our summer and the Europeans and North Americans love it to escape the bitter cold.
For the local people the mornings are cold and they light fires in the street to warm themselves. This makes for some wonderful photographic scenes with the smoke rising through the morning light and its very pleasant to warm yourself by the fire and watch the people.
