Tips for Visiting Bangkok in October

Bangkok Weather in October Bangkok Weather in October

Despite the high level of rainfall, October in Bangkok is a perfect time to find deals for airfares and hotel rates because it falls in Thailand's rainy season.

Another advantage is that it's less crowded, and therefore more quiet in comparison to the peak season. And by the end of October Bangkok weather gets more comfortable.

Hotel rates and airfares will increase because there will be a higher demand for hotel accommodation and flight tickets with the comfortable weather

Therefore, if you plan to travel to Thailand in October, you'd better prepare in advance.
