Bangkok Climate

Bangkok is the 68th largest province in Thailand. Much of the area is considered the city of Bangkok, which makes it one of the largest cities in the world. The Chao Phraya River, which stretches 372 km (231 mi), is Bangkok's main geographical feature.

Bangkok Climate

In Bangkok the land is only about two meters (6.5 ft) above sea level, which makes it vulnerable to floods during the monsoon season. Often after a fairly good downpour, the overflowing of water of canals and the river over the banks is a common feature, as a result of which there are massive floods. In order to tackle this problem, the Bangkok Metropolitan Administration (BMA) has raised the banks alongside some canals to prevent water from reaching the street level. However, one thing that decidedly goes against this beautiful city is the fact that the Bangkok is rumored to be sinking an average of two inches a year, primarily because it lies entirely on a swamp.

Bangkok has a hot, tropical wet and dry climate and the daytime temperature reaches the mid-30s Celsius throughout the year. November to February is the driest period of year and the most popular with tourists. March to May is the hottest period, and the rainy season runs from May to October. The highest recorded maximum temperature is 40.8 C (105.4 F) in May 1983 and the lowest recorded minimum temperature is 9.9 C (49.8 F) in January 1955.
