Bangkok has a tropical monsoon climate and has three different seasons. The most humid season, also known as Bangkok’s ‘rainy season’ or ‘low season’ is somewhere between May and October. Don’t worry as it typically doesn’t rain the entire day. The rain is characterised by, often local, 30-60 minutes torrential showers typically late in the afternoon.
The advantages of traveling during this ‘low season’ is that hotels, flight-tickets and other activities are often discounted. Other than that temperatures are more comfortable to explore Bangkok’s famous and less famous attractions.
