Bangkok Weather Overview

In Thailand, there are three main seasons throughout the year and Bangkok weather is no different. They are hot, cool, and wet. The hot season begins in March and ends in June. The wet season starts in July and lasts until October. The cool season is from November to February. Bangkok is one of the hottest cities in the world so there is no surprise that the average temperature during the day is over 30 degrees Celcius most of the year.

The four months that Bangkok has the highest humidity are April, May, September, and October. So if you don’t like humid weather, avoid coming to the city during these months. Besides, you might want to avoid March, April, and May because this is the hottest time in Bangkok. The temperatures during the day can be as high as 40 degrees Celsius. However, if you brave the heat and visit Thailand during these months, you can participate in Thailand's New Year, or Songkran festival. There are other exciting activities for you to enjoy such as boat cruises, water parks, shopping malls, and rooftop bars.

From May to October, it is cloudy and some areas even experience floods. But it doesn’t mean that it pours everyday. Sometimes there is light rain, and sometimes the sky is clear. Due to the monsoon, Bangkok weather from May to October doesn’t attract travelers. Therefore, if you visit the city, you will get a lot of discounts from hotels and tours.

The best time to visit Bangkok is from December to February. At this time of the year, Bangkok temperature during the day is 24 degrees Celsius which is quite cool, and you get to see blue skies almost everyday. At night, Bangkok's temperature drops to around 20 degrees Celsius. This is a great time to explore the city without worrying about the heat.

What are the seasonal activities that you can do in Bangkok?

Bangkok Hot season (from March to June)

When it comes to the hot season, we tend to think about beaches and water activities. However, is the hot season in Bangkok a great time for them? As we mentioned earlier, the Bangkok temperature during these months is really high (up to 40 degrees Celsius), so spending a lot of time outdoors is probably not a good idea. If you are visiting Bangkok this season, you can brave the heat to go swimming or snorkeling. Or you can attend one of the biggest festivals of the year which is the Songkran festival (Thai New Year). The festival takes place in mid-April, and you can expect thick crowds in Bangkok around this time.

The wet season in Bangkok (from July to October)

This is the low season in Bangkok due to monsoon. Coming here in July or August, you should expect short bouts of intense rain frequently. Then you have September and October, which are the rainiest months of the year. That’s why it is not an ideal time for outdoor activities such as driving around to explore the city. However, this season is a great time to save money on accommodations and flights. Besides, if you are a shopaholic, this is the best time for shopping with an “Amazing Grand Sale” in Bangkok. You will have discounts on almost everything. In addition, because there is a lot of rain, you can enjoy plenty of indoor activities, such as visiting the Grand Palace, malls with shopping centers, temples, aquariums, and other entertainment complexes.

Bangkok Cool-season (from November to February)

Cool-season has the most ideal Bangkok weather. That’s why this is the best time for you to visit the city. The Bangkok temperature of around 24 degrees Celsius is perfect for exploration. In addition to visiting tourist attractions in the city, the cool season is also the right time for beaches and islands. Moreover, Bangkok during holidays like Christmas and New Year is beautifully decorated so you will have a good time here.

Keep in mind that because of the dry and cool Bangkok weather from November to February, there is a huge rise in the number of tourists coming here around this time. Therefore, you should visit popular attractions early in the morning to avoid the crowds. Also, if China Town is on your list, you should plan to visit it from late January to early February. This is when the Chinese New Year takes place, so the town is vibrant, busy, colorful, and at its best!
