Peak and off season: When to get the best deal
With its tropical climate, Bangkok is destination worth visiting any time of year. The city does have busy peak periods however, and travelling during these times can generate higher airfares and accommodation prices.
The northern ‘winter’ months from November to February are typically the busiest times to visit Bangkok as the weather is cooler and dryer. Even during this time, there are still plenty of options when looking for cheap flights to Bangkok. Booking in advance, flying mid-week or booking alternate routes via a secondary city can all help reduce the cost of a ticket.
The slower tourist season lasts between May and August. This is also when rains are more likely to fall, but with so much to see and do in Bangkok, visitors shouldn’t let the rain stop them from travelling here. Even during inclimate weather, Bangkok is filled with plenty of indoor activities. Restaurants, museums, the aquarium and of course shopping all are welcome distractions. Best of all, Bangkok airfares are cheaper.
