When is the best time to visit Bangkok? The quick answer:

We recommend two separate periods:

The best time to visit Bangkok is between November and February. During this period you’ll fully immerse yourself in the best of Bangkok’s attractions and areas of interest. In these months rainfall and humidity are low, and temperatures are at their most pleasant, especially at night.

But if you want to experience a more unique side of Bangkok life, we recommend you visit during April’s Songkran festival: the Thai New Year, it’s one of the world’s biggest, most exciting and most unusual parties. For the entire period, locals and tourists participate in the world’s biggest water fight. It’s disruptive and bizarre, but it’s one of the world’s most unique experiences.

The Weather Seasons in Bangkok

Bangkok has a tropical climate and thus its year is divided into three seasons (rather than the traditional four seasons): the hot season from March to June, the rainy season from July to October, and the cool season from November to February. Each one offers distinctly different weather and events.

Here’s a brief introduction to these three seasons in Bangkok:

Hot Season: March to June

As you might have guessed, this is Bangkok’s hottest season, with daytime temperatures sometimes hitting peaks of around 40ºC, which really isn’t ideal for city sightseeing. Unless you’re particularly accustomed to searing-hot temperatures, it’s generally best to avoid this time of year.

Of these months, March is the most pleasant – temperatures are marginally lower and there’s not too much rainfall. May is searingly hot and unpleasantly humid, while June cools a little, but brings with it the early downpours of Bangkok’s disruptive monsoon season.

While April can be stiflingly hot and humid, the month plays host to Songkran, the annual Thai New Year celebrations. During this three-day period (which in reality lasts around a week), the entire nation descends into one giant water fight – and that’s really no exaggeration.

The most fun time to be in Thailand, it’s impossible to escape the excitement, as ice-bucket touting, water gun-shooting assassins lurk on every corner. It’s fun, it’s unbelievably busy and it’s a welcome respite from the soaring temperatures. It’s one of the world’s most exciting experiences.

Rainy Season: July to October

Humid, wet and disruptive, Bangkok’s monsoons hit during this entire period. Though October’s monsoons can be a little lighter, Bangkok often floods in August and September. If you want to travel to Bangkok during this period, July and October are the best options, though they’re still pretty humid and sticky.

A note: if you’ve never before experienced a rainy season in Asia, you might be surprised by just how heavy the downpours can be. When we say rainy season, we mean rainy season. That said, the big bouts of rainfall rarely last longer than 30 or 40 minutes, so they’re definitely dodgeable. Though the monsoon season isn’t an ideal time to visit, you shouldn’t let it deter you entirely.

One advantage of this period is a distinct lack of tourists. If you’re keen to avoid crowds in one of the world’s most-visited cities, the rainy season allows you to do exactly that.

Rainy season plays host to some interesting events, including October’s Chulalongkorn Day, when Thai residents mark the passing of King Chulalongkorn. Another highlight is the Queen’s Birthday in August (which doubles up as a Mother’s Day celebration).

Cool Season: November to February

This is Bangkok’s most pleasant and busiest season, as tourists flock to the city while temperatures, rainfall and humidity are all relatively low. Though average high temperatures still sit at around 32ºC, humidity is relatively tolerable and rainfall is very minimal.

Some tourists like to avoid this season in an attempt to dodge the countless crowds of other visitors. But although there are many travelers in Bangkok during this period, it’s absolutely the best time to visit in terms of weather. Don’t let all the other tourists detract you – you’re one of them too!

Cool season has lots of exciting events, including Trooping of The Colours and countless crazy New Years’ parties, which celebrate the western New Years.

The Tourist Seasons in Bangkok

High Tourist Season

High season in Bangkok is the same as the cold season, from November to February, when countless tourists from across the globe descend upon Thailand’s capital to enjoy pleasant weather – and indulge in all of the city’s excitement and adventure.

Here are the best things to do in Bangkok during high season:

  • Trooping of The Colours: a march-filled military extravaganza, this royalty-attended event sees the Thai army, navy and air force don special uniforms, while engaging in strictly-choreographed ceremonies. If you’re in Bangkok during December, you should consider attending.
  • New Year: though Thai New Year takes place in April, Thailand still celebrates the western New Years – and Bangkok embraces the event with gusto. Huge parties, massive gatherings and excellent fireworks displays make Bangkok one of December 31st’s most exciting cities.

Low Tourist Season

Bangkok’s low season is the same as its rainy season, from July to October. With heavy storms, huge rainfall and a chance of flooding, it’s not an ideal time to explore the city – but if you want to grab some bargains and avoid crowds, this period may be what you’re looking for. Just be sure to take a raincoat!

If you do visit Bangkok during this period, there are slots of events to enjoy. These are some of the best:

  • Mother’s Day/Queen’s Birthday: on this annual August celebration, Thai people celebrate both their own mothers and Queen Sirikit, who is considered to be the mother of all Thai people. With illuminations, shrines and candles, it’s an insight into a sensible side of Thai celebrations.
  • Chulalongkorn Day: another of Thailand’s more subtle celebrations, Chulalonkorn Day pays tribute to King Chulalongkorn. With food, religious remembrances and flowers, it’s a respectful and reflective day.
  • International Festival of Dance and Music: Bangkok’s biggest annual arts festival, this multi-week celebration offers top-quality servings of jazz, dance, opera, classical music and much more, in a jam packed programme of events and performances.

Shoulder Season

Bangkok’s shoulder season is the same as its hot season, from March until June. Hot, sticky and sometimes overbearing, the weather deters some travelers – but it’s largely preferable to the rainy season, so the city still welcomes many tourists during these months.

Some highlights during this period include:

  • Songkran: it’s no exaggeration to say that this may be the biggest party you’ve ever attended. Songkran is one of the world’s biggest festivals, as the entirety of Thailand descends into one gigantic water fight for a period of many days. Every April, Thai New Year is celebrated with this watery extravaganza, but it’s especially crazy in Bangkok.
  • Visakha Bucha Day: one of Buddhism’s most important holidays, this event typically takes place in May. With temple events, holy services and some nightlife restrictions, this is Bangkok at its most respectful – and it’s a very interesting insight into Thailand’s relationship with Buddhism.

When to Visit Bangkok – Depending on the Type of Traveler You Are

What is the Best Time to Travel to Bangkok for a Honeymoon?

The best time to spend your honeymoon in Bangkok is during the high season, from November to February. It is also its busiest season, but it’s absolutely the best time to live your special moments in Thailand’s capital city.

Yes, the city is very crowded during this period, but unless you want to spend your honeymoon dodging monsoons or staring with an oily sweaty face to your new spouse, high season is the best time to visit.

There’s nothing romantic about having to plan a honeymoon around changeable weather, so you should visit when Bangkok’s climes are at their most reliable and enjoyable.

Because Bangkok is diverse and multi-faceted, it’s an excellent honeymoon for couples who like the sights and sounds of big city life.

The Best Time to Go Shopping in Bangkok

The best time for shopping in Bangkok is from mid-June to mid-August, when the city celebrates its so-called ‘Amazing Grand Sale’. Some stores offer discounts up to a huge 80% – and there’s no limit to the bargains on offer, with a plethora of products ranging from electronics to clothing to jewellery.

During this period, you can grab inexpensive bargains throughout the entirety of the city, making it a great time to visit Bangkok if you’re a keen shopper.

Be prepared for low-prices, competitive fellow shoppers and potentially-disruptive weather. But most of all, be prepared to shop!

The Best Time to Visit for Culture and Museums 

Bangkok has a huge number of exciting, interesting and innovative indoor attractions, with several museums, temples and other areas of interest.

These are at their least busy during the city’s low season, from July to October. Though this period’s monsoons make outdoor adventures difficult, they of course don’t affect the city’s indoor attractions.

During this period, Bangkok is relatively less busy, meaning that museums and other indoor attractions are quieter. If you want to spend less time queuing and more time enjoying indoor exhibits without the distraction of countless crowds, July to October is absolutely the best time to do it.

The Best Time for Sightseeing and Outdoor Activities in Bangkok

If your priorities are sightseeing and outdoor adventures, you should visit Bangkok during the city’s high season, between November and February.

Although this season brings the chaos of crowds, it also offers very reliable weather, with relatively low humidity, pleasant temperatures and little chance of rain. If you attempt sightseeing and other outdoor activities outside of this period, you’re likely to be disrupted by the sweltering heat of the city’s hot season – or the disruptive downpours of its monsoon period.

Yes, this season is busy, but battling with a few more crowds is way more pleasant and tolerable than battling unpleasant weather.

During this season you can even enjoy nice day-trips away from Bangkok and discover other exceptional parts of the country.

What is the Best Time to Visit Bangkok on a Budget?

Because Bangkok is such an inexpensive city, with low-price accommodation, super-cheap street food and some of the world’s least pricey shopping opportunities, any time is an affordable time to visit the city – on even the tiniest of budgets.

If you’re really keen to save some money, you should visit during the city’s hot season, between July and October. During this period, there are relatively less other tourists, which can make it a good time for finding good deals on accommodations. If you want to stay in a posh hotel at a low price, visiting during this period can be a good time to do it.

But generally speaking, Bangkok is a perfect place for cash-conscious travelers at any time of year.

What is the Best Time to Visit Bangkok with Kids and Family?

If you’re traveling with kids, the best time to visit Bangkok is during its cold high season, between November and February. Though this season is also Bangkok at its busiest, it offers by far the most pleasant weather.

Bangkok’s monsoon season and hot season can be a little overwhelming even for adults, but they can be especially unpleasant for kids – and the adults who have to tolerate their complaints.

Bangkok is full to the brim with kid-friendly activities and adventures, so keeping your children entertained while in Thailand’s capital city is no problem – but you should ensure that your kids can fully enjoy all of the city’s fun and frolics by traveling during its most tolerable period of weather.

Many kids absolutely love Bangkok, especially during this period. For kids, the mega-busy November-February period can make the city even more exciting!

Every January, Thailand celebrates National Children’s Day, which offers special events, great discounts and a variety of kid-friendly adventures. Though we definitely wouldn’t recommend planning your trip around this annual (but relatively low-key) day, you and your kids should absolutely check it out if you’re visiting Bangkok during January.

The Weather in Bangkok by Month

January

With average temperatures of around 26ºC, this is Bangkok during its coolest period. It’s also Bangkok at its driest, with very little chance of rain and relatively low humidity. If you want to enjoy Bangkok‘s most pleasant period of weather, January is a fantastic choice.

Wear loose-fitting, breathable clothes, but forget the waterproof – you won’t need it!

This is one of Bangkok’s busiest months, as endless tourists from across the globe visit the city to enjoy Bangkok’s brilliant weather. But unless you’re particularly adverse to large groups of crowds, this shouldn’t be too much of a problem.

Highlights in January include National Children’s Day. Although the celebrations are relatively small, this can be a very fun event if you’re traveling with kids.

  • Average Temperature: 26°C / 80°F
  • Average Low Temperature: 21°C / 71°F
  • Average High Temperature: 31°C / 89°F
  • Average Rainfall: 10mm / 2 days
January busy street Bangkok

February

February is very similar to January, though temperatures creep up marginally to an average of 28ºC. Again, you can expect very little rainfall during this month, making it a brilliant time to enjoy excellent weather while exploring all of Bangkok’s sights and sounds.

This is the last month of Bangkok’s busy period, before tourist numbers drop off slightly in anticipation of the city’s hot season. If you’re looking for a month which combines great weather with relatively few tourists, February is a good choice.

Again, you will need breathable clothing, but you can go easy on the waterproofs.

One highlight of this month is Makha Bucha Day, an important festival in the Buddhist calendar. This celebration includes candles, processions, temple visits and religious ceremonies.If you’re interested in Thailand’s relationship to Buddhism, this is a fascinating insight into the quieter side of bustling Bangkok.

  • Average Temperature: 28°C / 83°F
  • Average Low Temperature: 23°C / 75°F
  • Average High Temperature: 32°C / 90°F
  • Average Rainfall: 20mm / 2 days

March

The beginning of Bangkok’s hot season, average temperatures in March sit at 30ºC, and rainfall begins to very slightly increase. As the temperatures begin to increase, so too does the humidity, as Bangkok begins to get hot and sticky.

By April, the hot, humid weather can make sightseeing a little unpleasant, so if you want to enjoy Bangkok’s attractions without too much sweat and sun, this is your last opportunity for a while.

Though you’re unlikely to need any waterproof clothing, you should take a light jacket in case of rain.

At the end of March, Bangkok welcomes its National Book Fair, perfect if you’re an avid reader.

  • Average Temperature: 29°C / 85°F
  • Average Low Temperature: 25°C / 78°F
  • Average High Temperature: 33°C / 92°F
  • Average Rainfall: 30mm / 5 days

April

Bangkok’s hottest month, April offers average temperatures of 31ºC, but the highs can often be way higher. As these soaring temperatures combine with very high humidity, April isn’t the most pleasant time to go sightseeing in Bangkok. Rain begins to increase slightly, but it isn’t yet too disruptive.

If you want to avoid crowds, early April has less tourists than the months preceding it, as some are deterred by the heat and humidity.

In mid-April, the crowds increase again, as Bangkok celebrates Songkran, the Thai New Year. This is one of the world’s most fun and fascinating celebrations. The world’s biggest water fight, every street is packed with water pistols, ice-cold buckets of water, and the pulsing beats of blaring music.

Thailand at its most unique, Songkran is – in the best way possible – hugely disruptive. No type of normal sightseeing is possible during Songkran, but it’s an incredible and unique way to experience the city. You’ll get drenched on every corner, but you’ll cherish the memories forever.

In short, April is Bangkok’s worst month for sightseeing – but if you visit during Songkran, it’s also Bangkok at its most fun, frenetic and unique.

  • Average Temperature: 30°C / 87°F
  • Average Low Temperature: 26°C / 80°F
  • Average High Temperature: 34°C / 94°F
  • Average Rainfall: 70mm / 8 days

May

In May, Bangkok’s average temperatures sit at around 30ºC, but humidity is high and rainfall increases significantly. There’s a slight chance of flooding and some chance of disruptive downpours.

Though you need to pack light, breathable clothing, you also need to make sure you take some waterproof layers.

Because May’s weather isn’t ideal – and because April’s Songkran’s crowds have disappeared – May has relatively few tourists, making it a good time to visit if you want to dodge the crowds.

Bangkok’s May highlights include the holy Buddhist festival of Visakha Bucha, one of the most important days in the Buddhist calendar. During this period, Bangkok’s temples are full of local visitors.

  • Average Temperature: 30°C / 86°F
  • Average Low Temperature: 26°C / 80°F
  • Average High Temperature: 33°C / 92°F
  • Average Rainfall: 190mm / 17 days

June

In June, temperatures and rainfall are similar to those of May, but you might find that June has more rainy days than the month that came before it.

Again, you should pack breathable clothing to combat the humidity, along with waterproofs to ensure you don’t get soaked by the now-regular downpours.

In June, the city welcomes the beginning of its so-called Amazing Grand Sale. From the middle of the month, you can grab discounts on all manner of bargains. Whatever you want to buy, you’ll find it at a reduced price during this two-month period.

If you’ve got a passion for shopping, mid-June can be a great time to visit. Just make sure you’re prepared to handle unpleasant weather… and the keen hands of other shoppers.

  • Average Temperature: 29°C / 85°F
  • Average Low Temperature: 26°C / 80°F
  • Average High Temperature: 32°C / 91°F
  • Average Rainfall: 150mm / 18 days
Cha Tu Chak Market, Bangkok, Thailand

July

July is when Bangkok’s rainy season officially begins, though in truth, the weather is similar to June, with average temperatures of 30ºC and pretty heavy rainfall on most days.

Though rain is frequent, downpours rarely last for more than 30 or 40 minutes, which is pretty standard for monsoon season in this part of Asia.

Again, tourist numbers are relatively low, so you can grab a bargain on accommodation while you also grab a bargain during the height of Bangkok’s Amazing Grand Sale.

In addition to the continuation of this sale, you can also look forward to enjoying the celebrations of the Pattaya Marathon. Though Pattaya is over an hour away from Bangkok, many tourists travel from Thailand’s capital to enjoy the marathon festivities, which include fantastic views, multiple races and competitors from around the world.

  • Average Temperature: 29°C / 85°F
  • Average Low Temperature: 25°C / 78°F
  • Average High Temperature: 32°C / 90°F
  • Average Rainfall: 150mm / 19 days

August

In August, Bangkok’s rainy season continues.

The rainfall is similar to the levels seen in July, but downpours become more frequent, as you’ll find that more days are rainy. On any given day, the chances of experiencing a heavy downpour are higher than the chances that you won’t.

Temperatures remain at an average of 30ºC, and humidity is still high, making for a wet and sticky Bangkok August. There’s still some chance of flooding. During August, visitor numbers are relatively low, as the weather deters some tourists.

This is your last chance to grab some great bargains in the Amazing Grand Sale, though the slight reductions on hotels and other tourist services continue through to September.

Cultural highlights this month include the Queen’s Birthday, which features lights, candles and huge images of Queen Sirikit.

  • Average Temperature: 28°C / 84°F
  • Average Low Temperature: 25°C / 78°F
  • Average High Temperature: 32°C / 90°F
  • Average Rainfall: 180mm / 21 days

September

Bangkok’s wettest month, the vast majority of the city’s September days are wet, with frequent downpours. Because September is the soggy epicentre of the rainy season, these downpours, though disruptive, are typically pretty short.

Humidity remains quite high, while average temperatures sit at 29ºC. If you’re willing to navigate the city’s frequent downpours in your attempt to avoid the chaos of crowds, September can be a good time, as most tourists stay away from Bangkok in their quest to avoid the frequent rain.

Make sure you pack good waterproof clothing, but you’ll still need breathable stuff too.

During September, it’s best to spend most of your time enjoying Bangkok’s indoor attractions – and because the city’s International Festival of Dance and Music begins in September, there’s plenty to keep you entertained indoors, with an exciting abundance of opera, dance, jazz, ballet, and more.

  • Average Temperature: 28°C / 84°F
  • Average Low Temperature: 25°C / 77°F
  • Average High Temperature: 31°C / 89°F
  • Average Rainfall: 320mm / 22 days

October

During October, Bangkok begins to gladly wave goodbye to the rainy season, but frequent downpours can still occur in the first half of the month. There may also be some flooding, though it’s way less likely to happen now than in the weeks preceding October.

Average temperatures remain at 29ºC, but by the middle of the month, the weather is much more pleasant and enjoyable – and much more suited to sightseeing and outdoor activities.

If you want to enjoy good weather before endless groups of other tourists descend upon the city, it’s a good idea to visit during the end of October, just as the rain begins to cease. You should still pack some waterproof clothing, but you’re less likely to need them.

Cultural highlights in Bangkok’s October include Chulalongkorn Day and Ak Phansa, which celebrates the end of the Buddhist Lent period.

  • Average Temperature: 28°C / 83°F
  • Average Low Temperature: 25°C / 77°F
  • Average High Temperature: 31°C / 89°F
  • Average Rainfall: 230mm / 16 days

November

November marks the end of Bangkok’s rainy season, as the city finally waves goodbye to torrential downpours and the risk of flooding. Rainfall levels drop very significantly In November, so there’s little chance that you’ll need any waterproof clothing.

Though November is the start of Bangkok’s so-called cool season, average temperatures in November still sit at around 29ºC. That said, evenings are a little cooler, so post-sunset city strolls can be a pleasant experience.

As the weather becomes more enjoyable, visitor numbers are driven up, as November sees a sharp increase in the amount of tourists visiting Bangkok.

Bangkok’s November highlights include the annual Beer Garden Festival, and Loy Krathong Festival, in which locals gather around bodies of water to release rafts of flickering candles. A magical festival full of tradition and heritage, the beautiful illuminations are a surprisingly quaint way to experience a quieter side to life in typically-busy Bangkok.

  • Average Temperature: 27°C / 81°F
  • Average Low Temperature: 23°C / 74°F
  • Average High Temperature: 31°C / 88°F
  • Average Rainfall: 50mm / 5 days

December

Along with January, December is Bangkok’s coolest and driest month, making it a fantastic time for lengthy sessions of city sightseeing. Humidity is tolerable, rainfall is very low, and temperatures, especially after dark, can be very pleasant.

The cool climes of December’s post-sunset Bangkok are great for enjoying the city’s nightlife.

Because the weather is so enjoyable during December, many other tourists descend upon Bangkok, so you’ll find that the city is very busy.

Though, traditionally, Thai people don’t celebrate Christmas or the western New Years, modern-day Bangkok embraces both with utter enthusiasm. With several parties, seasonal decorations and lots of fun festivities, the holiday season in Bangkok is very exciting.

  • Average Temperature: 26°C / 79°F
  • Average Low Temperature: 21°C / 70°F
  • Average High Temperature: 30°C / 87°F
  • Average Rainfall: 10mm / 2 days

Wrapping Up

Bangkok is one of the world’s busiest and most exciting cities. With some of the planet’s best street food, incredible nightlife, perpetually-smiling locals and a whole host of fascinating cultural attractions, it truly is a diverse destination.

A hugely popular tourist spot, Bangkok is endlessly exciting.

But depending on when you visit, your experience can hugely differ. With three very distinct seasons and a number of fantastic events throughout the year, different times of year offer different experiences in Bangkok.

We recommend two separate periods. If you want to experience Bangkok’s attractions and areas of interest, visit between November and February, when rainfall is low and temperatures and humidity are tolerable. Though you’ll see countless other tourists doing the same thing as you, this period offers Bangkok’s weather at its best by far.

If you want to experience what might just be the world’s most unbelievable party, visit during Songkran, the three-day celebration which – in reality – lasts for around an entire week. The Thai New Year, every corner of the entire country becomes a giant water fight. One of the world’s best festivals, it’s impossible to describe its scale.

Visiting during April’s Songkran makes normal sightseeing impossible, but when you’ll otherwise be having perhaps the best week of your life, who cares?

But whenever you go, you’ll fall in love with Bangkok. Unique, non-stop and sometimes even overwhelming, it’s packed with adventures, new experiences and mile-wide grins.
