Places to go and things to do in Bangkok

When to Visit

When to Visit

Bangkok enjoys a tropical climate with three distinct seasons, so make sure you time your visit wisely otherwise you could be hotter or wetter than you imagined!

Temperatures average at a lush 25°C in December and January in what is perceived as the ‘cool season’, making it ideal for a dose of winter sun. this is great news for those of you who want to escape the colder months at home.

Thailand’s hot season occurs between March and June, followed by the rainy season until October – so plan ahead and book flights to Bangkok earlier in the year.

Whenever you visit, you’ll be welcomed with open arms – Thailand is not known as Land of Smiles for nothing.

What to See

Bangkok’s monuments and palaces are a great way to get an insight into the history and culture of the city.

The spectacular Wat Pho temple is a must-visit on holidays to Bangkok.

One of the most spectacular Buddhist monuments in the world, the iconic reclining golden Buddha stretches an incredible 46m and is a must see.

The residence of the King of Siam since 1782, the stunning Grand Palace with its dazzling gold detailing will take your breath away.

Those seeking a sanctuary from the activity of this bustling city will find respite in the beautiful green spaces of Lumphini Park.

City Festivals

Often referred to as the world’s largest water fight, the Songkran Water Festival is a wet and wild event lasting 3-4 days.

Luckily, this celebratory shower falls in the middle of Bangkok’s hot season in April, and doubles up as the Thai New Year.

The Lantern Festival in November provides a more peaceful atmosphere with the release of thousands of twinkling lanterns fill the night sky, while the romantic Loy Karthong Festival sees small boats loaded with candles floating across canals and lakes.

Culture & Food

Bursting with oriental culture, there’s a fair share of sights to behold in the Far East, from awe-inspiring architecture to traditional martial art performances.

Tick off iconic landmarks such as the Emerald Buddha, visit The Bangkok Art and Culture Centre and experience unique activities such as the Himmapan Avatar musical, a colourful performance showcasing the city’s dedication to Thai culture.

Whether you’re enjoying a multiple-course dinner or grabbing a bite from a street-side food stall, be sure to sample exquisite renditions of Thailand’s fragrant curries, feast on sweet and spicy papaya salads and savour sticky rice with coconut for a traditional dessert.

Head to Yaowarat (Chinatown) for a mixture of Asian cuisines, visit Lookshin Tongchai in Soi Rambuttri for handmade grilled meatballs or pick up Pad Thai from Pad Thai Thip Samai in Phra Khanong.
