Best Time To Go To Bangkok

Bangkok, known to be the hottest city in the world, is located 14-degrees from the Equator and is sunny almost every day of the year. The temperatures are over 30-degrees Celsius or 86-degrees Fahrenheit. So summer is definitely not the best time to visit Bangkok. The best time to visit Bangkok would be winters when it is relatively cooler to roam around the city and explore its attractions.

  • Summer: March and April can be hot in the city, and the sweltering temperatures can rise to 40-degrees Celsius. This kind of temperature is sometimes unbearable even to locals. This is certainly an off season of Bangkok. 
  • Monsoon: Between May and October, is the city’s wet season, and a common time for downpours and floods around the city. 
  • Winter: Any Bangkok travel guide is sure to mention that the best time to visit to Bangkok is from November to February when it is neither too hot nor raining. This is the cool season in Bangkok. It is also when weather in Bangkok is tropical cool, humid, but very comfortable. This is the time of the year when you see a lot of tourists pouring into the city, and it is wise to book your accommodation early since this is a peak season. Plan a trip to Bangkok well in advance to save your expenses.

If you are wondering when is the best time to visit Bangkok to soak up its sun and relax on its stunning beaches; Winter(November to February) is the right pick!
