Bangkok has a tropical monsoon climate and generally remains hot and humid throughout the year. An ideal vacation spot, Bangkok is almost a year-round destination. Every season has a distinct charm and the city is at its enchanting best all months of the year. However, the peak season is between November and March when the tourist footfall is particularly high. The months of March, April and May are the hottest.

December to February: Regarded as the ‘cold months’, this is the perfect time to explore Bangkok on foot. In the evenings temperatures can drop below 20 degrees Celsius.

March to May: Although these are Bangkok’s hottest months, it is also the time when Bangkok celebrates the Thai New Year with great festivity and cheer. Sudden bouts of rain are a welcome change and boat cruises, mall shopping and lounging by the pool are highly recommended. Don't forget to carry your sunglasses and buy yourself a hat there!

May to October: Regarded as Bangkok’s ‘low season’, this is a great time to visit the city as you can fetch some great deals on hotels and excursions. The frequent bouts of rain do not deter tourists from indulging in a range of indoor activities like shopping, visiting aquariums and temples as well as entertainment complexes.
