Get ready for the heat because Bangkok, Thailand, is unsurprisingly hot in summer. But, Bangkok summer weather is slightly unusual, in that it’s possible for temperatures to be slightly lower at this time than in spring. Throughout June, July and August you can still expect the average maximums to be above the 30 ° C mark, but this will taper off by one or two degrees as July and August roll by. If you’re wondering what to do in Bangkok this summer, keep in mind that it’s likely you’ll also encounter some rain, and depending on the exact time of your arrival, your trip may coincide with monsoon season. With average rainfall starting at 150mm in June, and growing to as much as 190mm in August, it’s important to come prepared. Still, if you’re a fan of summer travel, Bangkok is an ideal place to visit, and the mixture of popular tourist attractions and several Bangkok summer events will make it a rewarding trip.
