Considering Nakhon Nayok's main attractions are its rivers and waterfalls, the best time to visit is during or just after the rainy season. The rainy season is from May to October. The highest rainfall is during September and October and these months can be too wet to be any fun. From May to August is a good time to visit.
November and December are probably the ideal months to visit for most people. The rainy season has finished but there is still plenty of water flowing out of the mountains.
From January to April, most of the rivers and waterfalls have dried up to a trickle. This is still a good time for other attractions in the province such as trekking or visiting Khao Yai National Park. There is also still water in Nakhon Nayok River released from the Klong Tha Dan Dam.
