According to the World Meteorological Organization, Bangkok is the hottest city in the world. Located just 14 degrees north of Ecuador, Bangkok is sunny all year round with temperatures above 30° C.
The driest months are December and January, during which rain is rarely a problem.
March and April represent the hot season with average temperatures of 35° C, but do not be surprised to see an increase in temperatures to 40° C or over. This is the worst time to visit Bangkok.
Then comes the rainy season that lasts from May till October. During these months heavy rains are normal for at least 40% of the days. The showers of rain, usually in the afternoons, are actually a nice way to cool off the heat and, although they can last all day, they usually finish after an hour. Extreme rainfall happens in September and October, so is better not to schedule a vacation to Bangkok in these months.
