Peak Season for Bangkok Travel: November to March

Bangkok serves as an ideal vacationing destination year-round. The city has its own array of seasonal charms that makes it enjoyable in all the months. Be it summers, winters or monsoons, the beauty and bounty of the place never seem to cease. In fact, it would not be wrong to say that the best time to visit Bangkok entirely depends on your personal choice and picking. However, if we consider the tourist footfalls of the place, we can see that majority of people visit Bangkok between the months of November to March. Therefore, they remain the peak season for Bangkok travel.

Now, if we take into account the climate of Bangkok as a whole, we see that the hottest periods occur during the months of March, April and May, with temperature soaring to around 400 C. Nonetheless, these sultry months too hold a charm. The season heralds the most important Thai celebration i.e. Songkran (Thai New Year), in mid-April. Therefore, if your visit coincides with the celebration of this festival, you can partake in the enchanting razzmatazz that it calls for. Besides, early May brings the Royal Ploughing Ceremony, which is another promising ceremonial observance of the city.

However, floods fail to obstruct the traffic in main roads, as Bangkok boasts of one of the best drainage systems in the world. Besides, in the month of June, rainfall does not occur on a regular basis and the climate remains very soothing. Thus, travelers looking for a relaxed stay and good bargains on hotel and flight charges can make a trip to Bangkok during this period. It is also a good time to grab relaxed honeymoon packages offered by various good hotels of Bangkok.

Come November and Bangkok unfurls many tourism delights. During mid to late-November, it is the time to celebrate the traditional festival of Loi Krathong. You can witness the melee of lights, as people pay tribute to Water Goddess and sail away candles and joss sticks in banana leaf boats, in the Chao Phraya. Besides, the climate remains the most bracing, with temperature remaining around 260 C. The city also weighs down with outdoor beer bars that are frequented by large flocks of tourists. In fact, it is the best time to unwind and enjoy relaxing evenings in the place. In addition, the festivity associated with Christmas and New Year lures many tourists to Bangkok during these winter months.
