Bangkok welcomes more visitors than any other city in the world and it doesn’t take long to realise why. Bangkok is a city of contrasts with action at every turn. Marvel at the gleaming temples, catch a tuk tuk along the bustling Chinatown or take a longtail boat through floating markets. Food is another Bangkok highlight, from local dishes served at humble street stalls to haute cuisine at romantic rooftop restaurants.
The heat is on
The weather in Bangkok is dominated by a tropical monsoon climate. This means the city has three main seasons: hot season from March to June, rainy season from July to October and cool season between November and February. As Bangkok holds claim to being the hottest city in the world, expect daytime temperatures to be in excess of 30 degrees centigrade throughout the year. The possible exception to this is in late December and early January.
Bangkok weather may not be the warmest in the world every day but, overall, it is unrelenting simply because it doesn’t cool at night. The two periods – April to May and September to October – are the most humid. The southwest monsoons arrive between May and October bringing unsettled, cloudy conditions. For many people, this is a welcome respite.
