5 Activities to Beat the Heat in Bangkok
Bangkok is a hot city, and everybody is reminded of that daily whenever stepping outside from air-conditioned condos, offices or malls. Thailand’s capital city has an average temperature of 29 degrees, and the difference between the average temperatures of the hottest month to the coldest month varies by only 5 degrees. There basically is just hot weather, and very hot weather.
