Planning Your Bangkok Visit

When to go?

The best time to visit Bangkok is from November to January, known to the Thais as the “cool season.” The weather is still hot and humid, but it’s the only time of year you won’t sweat in minimal clothing. Well, at least not as much!

How many days?

You’ll need to spend at least 3 nights in Bangkok to make it worth your while, but you should go for a week if you can. It’s worth staying even longer to see more of Thailand as a whole!

Where to stay?

Before booking your stay, consider what you want out of your visit. If it’s a quick trip, then it might be worth staying in Rattanakosin, or “Old Bangkok,” where most of the city’s historic sights are located. Sukhumvit is lively and upmarket but still a hub of tourism, and the financial district of Silom becomes the city’s party capital by night. For something a little quieter, book a hotel near Banglamphu.

A really great tour!! Noom was so knowledgeable about all of the temples and was able to answer all the questions I had. I’ve never taken a private tour before but it was definitely the way to go!! Getting picked up and having your own tour guide and driver just made the day so wonderful!! The cold towels and water in between stops was a nice touch!! I’ll definitely be recommending Noom to my friends and family!! Thank you so much!! You’ve made my trip to Bangkok a memorable one!! See you next time!!
