Today is the last day of this month and also this year. And as usual, I am writing this post to tell you how the weather in Bangkok, Thailand in December 2019 was. Hopefully, it helps anyone who plans to visit Bangkok in December in the years to come to plan their trips and also prepare stuffs.
If you have researched the weather of Thailand, you may already know that December is in the cool season. In Bangkok, for some years, the temperature drops to about 20 degrees Celsius. The weather is nice and perfect for wandering around the city. Besides, you can expect to see beautiful lights on the streets and in front of shopping malls. Even if Thailand is a Buddhist city, the streets are decorated gorgeously during Christmas and New Year.
For December 2019, the weather was cooler than I expected. In the first two weeks, the temperature went down to less than 20 degrees Celsius. After that, the temperature was back to normal which was about almost 30 degrees Celsius. It was still ok to wander around comparing to other months in the year. However, in the mid of December, there were many days that Bangkok’s air quality was at a dangerous level and people were warned to wear face masks when going outside. This was not the first time that we faced a situation like this. I hope we could handle it.
For people who plan to travel to Bangkok during December, I recommend preparing a light jacket because in some years the temperature drops to less than 20 degrees Celsius.
Have a happy new year and wishing you a wonderful vacation!
