Bangkok Thailand’s Climate & Weather

Bangkok is the largest province in Thailand. It is considered as one of the largest cities in the world. It lies about two meters above the sea level rise, which causes problems for the protection of the city against flood during rainy season. Often after the tremendous pouring of rain, water in canals and the river overflow the banks, resulting a massive flood. The flooding threat to Bangkok comes from three factors, especially during the monsoonal season. Heavy rains could combine with high tides and runoff from the north into the Chao Phraya River, which divides the city known to the locals as Krung Thep or the ‘City of Angels’ in reference to the Thai kingdom’s glorious past. To solve the problem the Bangkok Metropolitan Administration has recently built higher banks along some canals to prevent the water from reaching the street. However, some expert says it is not enough protection for the city!

Bangkok has a climate determined by three seasons. The seasons are clearly defined. It is winter from November to January, between February to April weather is mostly dry because of summer season and from May to October it is dominated by the southwest monsoon, in which during this time you can experience heavy rains.

During the summer season Bangkok is hot. The average temperatures is around 34º C, however it can often reach 40º C with the humidity levels of 75% which can make unbearable to stay outside. That’s why during this period of time you can rarely see Thai people roaming around the streets not unlike in any other Asian country. Most especially the month of April because this is the hottest month accross the country and it can be almost unbearably hot and humid. However, with this really hot climate- the wonder and strange thing about Bangkok is that your complexion never get tan even you lay under the sun or if it get’s tan it will take a little time and patience. But it is advisable to always bring water with you during summer in Bangkok because once you are under the sun it seem like you are under the largest sauna & you’ll easily get exhausted of heat.

During the rainy season the downpours of rain can be extremely heavy, but generally only last for an hour or so in the afternoon. The average of humidity is under 90% only, with temperatures averaging around 29º C in Bangkok. This season can be described as unpredictable and not the constant downpours of rain like you would expect.  With the high temperature the rain is not exactly cold. If you visit Bangkok during this rainy season, you might want to check any activities in Bangkok information about Bangkok Travel and Bangkok Services. So, if you are planning to some island time as part of your trip and vacation you can also check on the directories some Bangkok hotels to get started.
