Winter in Bangkok is the best time of the year. There is almost no rain at this time, evenings are quite cool. Air humidity decreases, so you can bear the heat easier. During this period there is a great choice of entertainments in Bangkok.
Winter is ideal time for those who want to explore the sights of Bangkok - in other seasons it will be more difficult. Bangkok has many temples, palaces, museums and parks.
