Situated in the heart of the country, central Thailandcovers the broad plain of the Chao Phraya River and its capital city Bangkok. Because of its flat landscape the region’s temperatures remain relatively constant throughout the year. From March to June things can really start hotting up with temperatures in Bangkok soaring up to 40°C by day and with the humidity rising at night. Those looking to escape the heat begin heading towards the mountainous north or the cooler islands in the south of the country.
The rainy season in central Thailand really kicks in during August. By September there will be a thunderstorm most days, often resulting in flooded streets but cooler night time temperatures. The rainy season usually ends in late October when the winds suddenly change to the north, bringing clearer skies and warmer temperatures.
Hottest time is March to April – (average maximum temperature 36°C).
Wettest time is May to October – (average minimum temperature 20°C).
The best time to visit Bangkok is from November to February.
