Travel to Bangkok in the hot season (From March to May)

During the hot season, from March to June, the weather in Bangkok is super hot! Average temperatures during this time range between 34.3°C (93.7F) and 35.4°C (95.7F), but remember those are the average, which means the actual daytime temperature is higher. Then there’s the humidity. April is the hottest month in Bangkok, with the average 32°C (89.6F) – and, sometimes it can soar up to around 37°C (98.6F), but Songkran Festival (to read more at  ) is something you won’t miss in April. It is really a good choice to celebrate the festival and feel the original Thai style! Also, it is not as crowded as the cool season in Bangkok.


Travel to Bangkok in rainy season (From June to October)

It is true that 85% of the annual rainfall is concentrated in the rainy season, and the monthly average temperature maintains at around 27.5 °C (81.5 ºF ). However, it will be very cool after the rain. It may ruin your day with pouring rain when you could have wandered around the city to explore many amazing attractions, but don't worry! Bangkok does have many indoor attractions and there are many advantages to travel in Bangkok in the rainy season – airplane tickets and hotel rates will be much cheaper, also, it is less crowded than ever.


Travel to Bangkok in cool season (From November to February)

After the rainy season, the best season is coming, which the average temperature is 19°C (66.2F) to 26°C (78.8F). Although it is called 'cool season', the temperature is just relatively lower than other seasons. Everything is perfect except it is super crowed, especially during Christmas, New Year's Day, and Chinese Spring Festival.
