Best Time of Year to Visit Bangkok

Learn when is the best time of year to visit Bangkok in this Howcast travel video.


If you’re headed to Bangkok you should know that it’s only about 14 degrees north of the Equator. That means it’s a tropical place. And as a city, it has some air pollution. When you put those 2 things together, you’ve got a pretty challenging climate!

Bangkok is one of the world’s hottest cities, and though it never gets truly cold, certain times of the year are much more comfortable than others.

March and April tend to be the hottest months, with temperatures reaching over 100 º Fahrenheit.

The rainy season is from May to October, with the last two months seeing the heaviest downpours. This will mean cooler temperatures, but also flooding. However, hotel rates and airfare are likely to be much lower during the rainy season, so if you’re looking for a bargain and don’t mind getting your feet wet, this could be the time for you.

The coolest time of all to visit Bangkok is from November to February. These are also the driest months, making them the ideal time to visit, in terms of comfort. Unfortunately, this is also the most expensive time to visit. But, if you can splurge to visit then, you will find it’s worth the investment!

Whenever you choose to visit Bangkok, remember that it’s always humid and daytime temperatures are usually in the 80s even during the cooler seasons, so pack light clothing and keep hydrated while you’re out and about.

Whatever you do -- Don’t let the weather stop you from enjoying the magic Bangkok.
