Weather & Climate

The main climate category in Southeast Asia is tropical rain forest, which means hot summers and wet rainy seasons due to monsoons. There are however, some tropical savannah areas with cool and dry winters, too.

One special attribute Southeast Asia has is the equator runs almost through its horizontal center-line. Having sub-regions in both north and south of the equator naturally causes opposite seasons – which in this case is wet/dry.


But looking deeper into temperature and precipitation data vs. time-of-year, it can be concluded that the region can be split into 2 large climate zones, i.e. Northwest and Southeast with opposite wet/dry seasons


From the above information, it could be implied how weather would affect live outdoor music events, which shall be discussed in Music Festival Seasons.
