Weather Overview for Bangkok
Like most tropical climates, the year is divided into two
seasons- wet and dry. In
October through until February is probably the best time to visit Bangkok, and the temperatures are not as high as other times of the year and generally sit between 25 and 28 degrees Celsius. There is an occasional shower and light breezes which provide a break from the heat.
November to February is the driest time in the city and this is also the most popular time to visit. This is peak tourist season due to the fact that 1. it sees the least rainfall and 2. it falls just prior to the hottest time of the year. In March, April and May the weather will exhibit temperature extremes and often sits in the mid 30’s for days on end. This combined with high humidity means that it can be somewhat uncomfortable at times. If visiting during this period be sure to pack a lot of light, cotton clothing to deal with the hot and sticky conditions.

While the year is split up into a wet and dry season and the weather does exhibit distinct patterns, the temperature doesn’t actually vary greatly from month to month which is fairly typical of a tropical climate.
One of the problems which faces Bangkok is that the city itself only lies 6ft above sea level, so when there are prolonged periods of rain this can lead to severe and problematic flooding when the rivers and canals overflow.
