Today is the last day of this month, March 2017. I am writing this post to tell you how the weather in Bangkok, in March 2017 was. You can use it as a reference, if you plan to visit Bangkok in March. The weather does not vary much from year to year.
As you may know, March is the first month of summer in Bangkok. You can expect the hot weather. I usually try not to go out in the afternoon. The temperature might rise up to 35 degrees Celsius. And, many people are freaked out by the weather.
For March 2016, the weather was like I expected. It was very hot. In the first week of the month, the weather was still not so hot. Then, in the second week the temperature increased to 35 degree Celsius. We sweated after a few minutes walking. Well, during the month, there are raining days that help decrease the temperature.
For a visitor who plan to visit Bangkok in March, I would recommend you to prepare yourself for the heat and humidity such as pack light-weight clothing, sunscreen, hat, and so on. And don’t forget to have drinking water with you all the time. My trick to wander Bangkok in summer is to start the day early and visit outdoor places such as temples, palaces, and so on. And, then visit shopping malls in the afternoon.
Happy traveling Bangkok!
