Common questions and answers in relation to this article

Is Bangkok the hottest city in the world?

It may not have the highest peak temperatures but according to the WorldMeteorological Society, and based on year-round average high-low temperatures,Bangkok is the hottest city in the world. The average ‘winter’ temperature in the city is 26 degrees Celsius, so winter coats barely see the light of day here

Does Bangkok get cold?

The cold season is generally from November to February. In Bangkok this means it might get as cold as 60F at the coldest point of the night, but more likely 65F. In the day it might average around, say, 75F. Sometimes maybe as low as 70F and higher up to 85F

Which month is best to visit Bangkok?

While it won’t make a huge difference, late November and early December may be the best time to visit Bangkok, when the city is drying out from the monsoon season and experiencing a slight cool down, and the holiday crowds have yet to arrive. September and October are Bangkok’s (and Thailand’s) rainiest months.
