May has just passed and now I am writing this post to tell you how the weather in Bangkok, Thailand was in May 2016. I believe that it will be useful for you who are planning to visit Bangkok during May in the years to come.
If you have researched the weather of Thailand, you may already know that May is the starting month of rain season. After suffering with the heat for two months (March and April), we all are waiting for the rain.
This year, the weather in the first half of May was still too hot. The temperature was about 35 degrees Celsius or higher like in April. The weather was a little bit better in the second half of May. We started to see the rain coming and the temperature dropped slightly.
For me, both April and May are not good months to wander around Bangkok including other provinces in Thailand because it is extremely hot. Well, if you plan to visit Bangkok in May, I recommend you to prepare stuffs such as hat, umbrella, sunscreen, and drinking water with you all the time. Besides, you may plan to start the days early because in the afternoon it might be too hot to walk on the streets.
Enjoy traveling Bangkok!
