Averages for Bangkok in February
February is almost identical to January in Bangkok, Thailand, with an average temperature of 28°C, an average high of 33°C and low of 23°C. The sea temperature remains unchanged at 28°C, and the average rainfall, humidity and daily sunshine remain the same at 10mm, 70% and nine hours respectively. Despite the similarities between the months, it is always a good idea to check the 14-day forecast before setting off, in case there is any freak weather.
February is a very busy month for the calendar. For the duration of the month there is the King Rama II Memorial Fair, which honours Thai Pot Rama II and features competitions and exhibitions. In the middle of the month there is the Bangkok Film Festival, which is the country’s largest event of this kind, and hordes of international filmmakers arrive in the city to show their films. Mid-February also sees Makabucha Day, a national holiday where a number of religious activities take place, and Lord Buddha is celebrated with incense sticks and candlelit processions. Nearer the end of the month is the Nakhon Pathom Food and Fruit Fair, where visitors can enjoy various local Thai produce and cuisine from the numerous stalls. Finally, the Phra Nakhton Khiri Fair takes place in late February and lasts for nine days. It is held in the town of Phra Nakhon Khiri, very close to the city of Bangkok.
Oriental Residence won the TripAdvisor’s Travellers’ Choice 2013 award for Luxury, and no guest will be wondering why. Stunning views, attentive staff and luxurious attention to detail mean any guest in the 145-room hotel will want to stay far longer than their booked stay. There are one-, two- and three-bedrooms suites, plus the Grand Deluxe, which combines elegance and casual to provide the pinnacle of hotel comfort, complete with a fully-equipped kitchen, hardwood and marble flooring, a marble bathroom and in-residence dining.
Holidaymakers who want to enjoy Thailand but are not convinced by the hedonism of Bangkok may be interested in Ko Samui, which has similar weather to the capital.
