September, October in Thailand

We're planning Bangkok and Chaing Mai for late September - early October. How much rain can we expect? We know it's the rainy season, but we'd rather avoid the crowds in the high tourist season. Does it rain all day? Only a couple of hours? We went to Costa Rica during the rainy season and it was not a problem. Thanks for any information.

I've been in September and it rained most days but spasmodically rather than all day. The rain itself was not so much the problem more the slight flooding from the buildup especially in some of the small sois. It seems you will be there on the tail end of it anyway so hopefully you will be ok. Have fun!

You should be OK. Normally our rainy season finishes earlier than in Bangkok or the South.
