The weather in Bangkok is typically hot and humid. The best time to visit is between mid October and mid February. During this time, the city’s temperature is relatively mild, with high’s averaging 32°C and less rainfall than average. This is also the peak travel season and Bangkok’s festival season.

In April, the weather is at its hottest and is very humid. This can make for extremely unpleasant conditions. The monsoon season runs from May to October, with August and September seeing the most rainfall. During this time, flooding is common, however, it does not stop people from visiting. July and August are also popular travel months.

If crowds are an issue, those who do not mind hotter temperatures and humidity should consider traveling between April and June and between September and October. April is also the time during which the city’s most celebrated festival – Songkran (New Year).

With temperatures capable of reaching the upper 30s, high humidity levels and heavy rains, it’s best to pack a variety of lightweight, casual clothes. Be sure to bring some clothes that are a little more conservative for visits to temples. Both men and women should cover their shoulders and knees. Rain jackets can be heavy and hot, so instead, purchase an umbrella in town. To avoid sunburn, be sure to bring plenty of sunblock with a SPF of at least 30. Hats and sunglasses are also a must, since the sun in Bangkok is relentless. Rehydrating solutions can also help in the event of heat exhaustion and dehydration. Small first aid kits are always beneficial. Fill it with anti-diarrhoea medication, insect repellent, pain relief, antibacterial cream, water-purification tablets and insect repellent.

Always carry some tissue with you, as toilet tissue may not always be available in public places. Bangkok experiences frequent power outages, so a small torch is essential. A pocketknife will also come in handy in a variety of situations.
