Best Times to Visit Bangkok

The best time to visit Bangkok is from November to March when the heat and humidity are at their lowest. Still, Thailand's tropical climate could easily bring temperatures up to 90 degrees on any given day, regardless of the time of year. To find deals on airfare and hotel rates, consider a trip between April and October, the hottest and rainiest time of the year. Not only are you more likely to find a deal during this time, but crowds will also likely be fewer in comparison to "winter," which is Bangkok's peak travel season. Keep in mind that monsoon season officially starts in May and generally lasts until late September and early November.

November-March

Daytime temperatures during this time range between the high 80s and low 90s, while the lows generally stay in the mid-70s. Though from December to January, lows can dip down to the 60s. While temperatures might reach uncomfortable heights during the day, precipitation and humidity levels are at their lowest, making these five months the best times to visit Bangkok weather-wise. Keep in mind though that a lot of travelers head to Bangkok during this time to take advantage of the weather, so be prepared for crowds and make sure to book months in advance.

Key Events:

  • Golden Mount Temple Fair (November)
  • Loy Krathong (November)
  • Chinese New Year (January)
  • Makha Bucha (February)

April-October

Beginning in April, the city's heat and humidity levels rise. Monsoon season officially occurs from May to October, though rainfall starts to spike come April. Temperatures during this time rarely dip below 90 degrees during the day, and rain showers do little to cool things down. Because this is the low tourist season, you are more likely to snag travel deals as well as contend with fewer crowds. From July to August, however, there may be a small spike in tourism, as westerners tend to travel during the summer.
