Weather in Bangkok

Thailand is a tropical country, so it is hot throughout the year, but the best time to visit Bangkok is between November and February during the dry season. During the rainy season between May and September, humidity is very high and the downpours are short but violent and the streets of Bangkok often flood. The hottest time of year is between March and May when the air-conditioning is on overdrive and the sweat pours from the pores.
