Why You Should Visit Bangkok

Whether you’re interested in the 24-hour party scene, night markets, historic temples, or the food, you won’t be disappointed when you visit Bangkok. Bangkok is one of the world’s most visited cities, and once you arrive, you’ll see why--it's much more than just a jumping off point to visit other Asian hot spots.

When to Visit Bangkok

Expect more crowds if you visit Bangkok during festival times, as well as around Christmas and New Year's. Bangkok's most popular events are the Thai New Year festival of Songkran (mid-April) which is celebrated by three days of all-out water fights, and the Loy Krathong floating baskets festival (November).

Bangkok Weather Averages

Visit Bangkok between November and February, during the dry period where temperatures are mild. If you're planning Bangkok travel between May and September, be warned that those months are considered monsoon season. Between March and May, expect high temperatures and humid weather.
