It’s all about timing. To avoid crowds and inflated prices, we recommend the period between high and low seasons when the weather is fine, places are still open and happy to welcome travelers, and you can explore a destination at your own pace. ShermansTravel experts call this magical time and space continuum the Sweet Spot.

When to go to Bangkok

Peak Season: November to January

Prices are higher than usual, but still relatively low – you’ve entered the Third World! Never come without having booked a room. Enjoy fabulous festivals, appealingly warm days, balmy nights, and no rain whatsoever.

Off Season: February to April

The heat is on, and Bangkokians cool off at Songkran (the Thai New Year a.k.a. the Water Festival); prepare for some serious splashing. Otherwise, it’s too hot to trod the streets, though bargain hunters are in for a treat.

Sweet Spot: May to October

Daily showers and impossibly high humidity mean less tourists but more hassle – though trying to hail a cab on flooded streets is a definitive Bangkok experience. Plus, hotel rates are low.
