Respectful traditions like making merit or paying respects to their ancestors can be observed during this festival as well.

However, it is noted that there are hardships that tourists may encounter: too hot weather, heavy rain in the rainy season, miscalculated time for the festivals, and expensive flights. Hence, we’ve provided you with some recommendations about when the best time to visit Bangkok is.

What’s best to offer each month in Thailand

Worth noting: since Bangkok has a tropical monsoon climate, the weather mostly remains between hot and humid throughout the year, with the exception of the period between December and January, when it is mostly the coolest and driest. Whereas April has the hottest weather of the year, those who are not accustomed to very hot weather may want to avoid this particular period of time.

What to do in Bangkok: Here’s our list of what’s best to offer each month in Thailand.


New Year’s celebrations and fireworks displays at popular spots like Central World and Asiatique. If you are looking for a spot to countdown or celebrate the arrival of the new year, Bangkok can offer you that experience.


Chinese New Year festivities in Bangkok’s Chinatown, Yaowarat. The festival may seem niche, but it is actually not. Chinese New Year festivities spread quite widely throughout the city, not just in Yaowarat.


The weather is starting to heat up, but it is still nice enough for sightseeing. Even though March doesn’t offer any particular key events like the previous months, visitors can enjoy themselves by exploring the city.


April in Thailand is known for Songkran, the Thai New Year festival known for water fights and cultural celebrations. Visitors can explore the traditional Thai New Year festival both in the streets, where the water fights are held, and in the temples, where most of the respectful traditions are performed.

If you are intrigued by Buddhism, you can visit Bangkok in May and attend the activities on Visakha Bucha Day, a significant Buddhist holiday with candlelit processions at temples.

June, July, and August

The low season in Bangkok typically starts in July and extends to October. The rainy season is usually at its peak between June and August, and the attractions are usually less crowded than in the high season. It may be another good choice for you to visit Bangkok during this period if you don’t mind the rain.


Vegetarian Festival in Chinatown, marked by vibrant processions and vegetarian food stalls. Similar to the Chinese New Year festival in Chinatown, the events are not limited to Yaowarat. You can explore vegan foods and attend the tradition if you like during this period.


Loy Krathong, the festival of lights, is celebrated with floating lanterns on waterways. The festival usually extends from the end of October to early November.


New Year’s Eve countdown and fireworks display at iconic locations, such as the Siam District. You can expect the event and festivities to start in the middle of December.


Although the best time to visit Bangkok ranges from November to February, the city has its own charm and uniqueness that you can find yourself enjoying exploring during the low season as well. However, that depends on the purpose of your trip. Meanwhile, when you’re exploring the city and find yourself tired, you can visit the VIE Hotel Bangkok.
