Late November until mid-January is the best time for Bangkok vacations because temperatures are cooler, close to the 20°C mark, and humidity is also greatly reduced. Vacations during this time, however, are more expensive as this is peak season for Bangkok travel. During the remainder of the year, temperates in Bangkok remain at around 30°C, which many vacationers find quite hot. Bangkok’s rainy season lasts from May to October, during which downpours and monsoons occasionally occur. From March until May, temperatures in Bangkok can sky-rocket well past 30°C. Travelers taking a Bangkok vacation during January or February should visit the city’s many Thai festivals, including the Thai and Chinese New Year’s celebrations, the Bangkok Fringe Festival, and Temple Fairs.
