It’s always hot in Bangkok, so you’re guaranteed to have warm weather at any time of the year. The climate falls into three distinct categories – dry and hot, rainy and hot and extremely hot, so take this into consideration when booking flight tickets to Bangkok.
The dry season (November to February) is the most popular time for travellers to arrive on cheap flights to Bangkok. This exotic destination where East meets West is known for its breathtaking temples, floating markets, tasty street food plus a myriad of other attractions. Sightseeing is more comfortable in the cooler weather of the dry season but ‘cooler weather’ to the Thais still means tropical temps in the late 30s for the rest of us, so pack light cotton clothing. Keep an eye on prices well in advance if you’re wanting cheap flights to Bangkok for December and January, these are the busiest tourist months.
Unless you’re able to deal with extremely hot, humid weather and torrential downpours Bangkok’s spring and summer (March to August) are not a good time to book flight tickets.
The cheapest flights to Bangkok are in the shoulder months of September and October, before the tourist season begins and when the temperatures are lower. This is when you’ll score some travel and accommodation bargains.
It’s more difficult to get cheap flights to Bangkok during peak season, but you may pick up some last minute flight deals if you’re flexible on dates. For the best cheap flight deals, aim for the shoulder season between September to November and book a couple of months in advance. The right side of the plane coming into Suvarnabhumi International Airport will give you good views of Bangkok.
