Best time to take a vacation to Bangkok

  • The best time to visit Bangkok is between November and February, the driest and coolest period of the year. During the day, temperatures are often around 30ºC and often drop to the low 20s after sunset. The low season is the hottest time between the months of March and April. If you plan to visit during the wet season, between May and October, be prepared for daily heavy downpours. Travellers planning to go abroad to Bangkok during the high season, between the months of January or February, will be able to enjoy the Chinese New Year Festival.

Insider tips for Bangkok travel

    • For those looking for the best cuisine in Bangkok, Sukhumvit district offers a wealth of ethnic options fusion choices.
    • Local food carts in Bangkok offer Thailand's national dish, pad Thai, consisting of rice noodles, red chili pepper, eggs, and fish sauce.
    • For those looking for something unique, try the food carts on Khao San Road for deep-fried insects topped with soy sauce.
    • Dinner cruises and tours departing from the River City pier are another great way to enjoy the best of Bangkok, including cultural performances.
    • The city of Bangkok is particularly well known for its vibrant nightlife. Informal roadside bars located in Sukhumvit often stay open all night.

Where to stay in Bangkok

  • Few buildings in the city can rival the view from the Chatrium Suites hotel. From the 5-star luxury of your room, you can take in the splendour of the Chao Phraya River and pick out famous landmarks on the cityscape. Perched on the bank of the river on Charoenkrung Road, the hotel combines the best of Thai design with all the amenities you would expect from a top-rated establishment.

    An oasis of calm in the hustle and bustle of Bangkok, the Shangri-La hotel is the perfect refuge for the tired traveller. Strolling through the lush gardens or spending time in the spa, it is easy to forget you are in the middle of a huge metropolis. The design ranges from traditional teak pavilions for riverside dining, to modern state-of-the-art bedrooms and suites with no detail spared in the pursuit of comfort.

    Experience the vibrancy of modern Bangkok at the fashionable Ds67 Suites hotel. Situated on Sukhumvit Road, within easy reach of all the bars, clubs and shops the area has to offer, each of the 27 rooms is uniquely decorated in one of four themes, designed to show all aspects of the exciting city.

    If you want to treat yourself to panoramic city views and five-star comfort, check in to Lebua at State Tower. This all-suite hotel on Silom Road is in the second-tallest building in the city. From the Tower Club Lounge on the 59th and top floor you can enjoy a cocktail while taking in the spectacular view of the city sprawling out below. There is a pool on the roof as well, if you fancy a swim at altitude.

How to move around in Bangkok

  • Bangkok by Taxi

    A rickshaw with an engine, the tuk tuk is everywhere you look in Bangkok. Noisy, open-sided and possessing just three wheels, the tuk tuk is a method of transportation to be tried at least once. Prices must be haggled so make sure you've come to an agreement before setting off towards your destination.

    If you are after a more comfortable ride, a conventional taxi could be a better bet. The chances are the cost will be the same, unless your bargaining skills are outstanding. Remember to look out for cars bearing a “taxi meter” sign. With no meter you will be reliant on haggling again.

    By Rail

    Two public train networks, the Skytrain (BTS) and the underground system (MRT) serve Bangkok. Skytrain serves almost all of the main tourist areas with just two lines, although it will not take you to the airport. Tickets are cheap and announcements are in English. Less frequented by tourists, the MRT is similarly cheap with 18 stations but plans for expansion.

    By Boat

    Long, narrow and fast, river taxis speed up and down the Chao Phraya river all day long. With fares ranging from 5 to 10 baht depending on your destination, they are a cheap option and often faster than a taxi. Be prepared to leap on and off when you have to; drivers do not like to stop for long and there is usually a mad dash each time a boat reaches a pier.

    By Car

Bangkok restaurants

  • At first glance, Raan Jay Fai (327 Mahachai Road) seems like any other noodle bar jostling for space on Malachai Road – small and noisy with simple, functional furniture spilling out onto the street. Then you see the queue snaking out of the shop, even at the opening time of 4p.m., and you realise this place is different. People come from all corners of Bangkok for one dish and one dish alone, pad khee mao, or drunken noodles. At four times the cost of the same plate in any other noodle bar in the city, the noodles have to be something special to keep the punters coming back. And they are. Spicy Thai basil adds the finishing touch to a steaming dish of huge prawns, broad rice noodles and a cornucopia of vegetables.

    Cheap prices and simple décor hide the fact that Krua Apsorn (503 – 505 Samsen Road) is a culinary treasure. The place has been a favourite amongst royalty for years. Maybe it has something to do with the experienced chef who has worked for the blue-blooded in the past. Here he serves up simple Thai dishes, with curries a speciality. The yellow curry, or gaeng luang lai bua is the star attraction.

    The biggest danger when eating at The Deck (36-38 Soi Pratoo Nok Yoong) is that you are so distracted by the view you let your food go cold. Perched on the bank of the Chao Phraya River, diners are spoilt by a perfect view of Wat Arun, the Temple of the Dawn, just across the water. When you finally drag your eyes back to the menu you will not be disappointed. A great range of traditional Thai dishes is complimented by some French bistro specials.

Health & Safety

  • Vaccinations and Hygiene

    There is no risk of malaria in Thailand’s major cities. The same cannot be said of more rural and forested areas, so make sure to consult your doctor on suitable medication if you plan to venture outside of the capital.

    There are no compulsory vaccinations for travel to Bangkok although boosters for those included in the vaccination schedule are recommended, including tetanus, polio and diphtheria; Measles; Hepatitis A and B; Typhoid; Rabies and Japanese Encephalitis. Dengue fever is present in Thailand, with highest risk in rainy season (May to November).

    Travellers are advised to drink bottled water.

    The standard of healthcare is excellent although it is advisable to take out Repatriation Insurance before travelling. In case of emergencies, dial 191.

    Thailand is in an earthquake zone. In the event of a natural disaster, contact relatives as soon as possible.

    Security

    While not a big issue in Bangkok, petty crime does exist. If you need assistance you can dial the tourist police at 1155. Here are some tips to keep in mind to stay safe. Photocopy all official documents and keep the photocopies with you, leaving the originals in your hotel safe. Avoid walking alone or in dimly lit areas at night. When taking a taxi, make sure the driver's licence is on display.

    General Advice

    Travellers should bear in mind that entrance to temples can be subject to a conservative dress code. Flip-flops and shorts are both no-nos and women should cover their shoulders when entering sacred places.
