July 2017 is about to pass. This blog post is aimed to tell you the weather in Bangkok in July 2017. This information should be useful, if you plan to visit Bangkok in July in the years to come.
As you may know, July is in rain season. Similar to June, I expect the not-so-hot weather and the heavy rains.
For July 2017, as expected, it rains almost everyday mostly either in the morning or in the evening. If it rains hard, some areas are flooded and it takes more time than usual to commute. For example, between office and home, from one hour, it could become 2 hours or more.
Well, if it does not rain, the temperature on that day could go up to more than 30 degrees Celsius. However, the weather is much better than in April (the hottest month in Thailand).
So, to wander around Bangkok in July, you have to pack both umbrella/ raincoat and also sun protection. A flexible plan shall be prepared. For me, as a local, on a rainy day, I choose to stay home. Well, for a visitor, I recommend you to visit interesting indoor places such as museums, art galleries, or shopping malls.
Happy traveling Bangkok!
