Sept. in Thailand?

Hi everyone,
I am contemplating a 16 day trip to Thailand With OAT in mid Sept. According to weatherbase.com, Bangkok, Chang Mai and Chang Rai have the highest amount of rain in Sept. I know some of you say "don't let the rain stop you" but can anyone tell me first hand about time spent there in Sept. Bangkok's average rainfall in Sept is 12.6" and the most recorded is 26.6". Those numbers don't mean much to me. I really would appreciate any info you can provide. I know some of you might ask me why I am going on an escorted tour. I prefer that and this will be my 3rd trip with OAT.
Thanks

September is one of my favorite months to go to Thailand. There aren't so many tourists and it isn't too hot. It doesn't rain as much as you would think, but Bangkok flooded once about 4 or 5 years ago. I'll probably be there again this September.

What do you do when it rains in your town. Take an umbrella, some rain gear and go. You will be on tours with OAT, they may have a backup plan if it rains too much one day - if not go to a SPA and enjoy a massage. Go

Believe me, I've lived in Bangkok for 15 years. During the entire rainy season, it generally only rains for an hour or so a day, usually in the late afternoon. Plan on getting an early start sight-seeing, then spend the late afternoon at the spa, seeing a movie (regular seats for the latest Hollywood blockbuster run about $4, super-VIP seats, $10), or just shopping. You can walk from MBK to Central World withough getting wet (but you'll be exhausted).

Thanks to everyone for the input. I think I can now put aside the weather concerns. Now, it's just dealing with the 21 hrs. or more from NY. I went to China a few years ago and it took 32 hrs. to get home, including layoves.
