What is the best time to visit Bangkok ?

If you like extremely hot weather, all year can be good to visit Bangkok, when it rains you can always go to a big mall or to another indoor place. If you don’t like rain, avoid the rainy season (May to October) and visit in the dry season (November to May). April is the hottest month, but the famous Songkran water festival is held in April, it is an interesting event for tourists. September is very rainy. December is relatively the coolest month, you may not need air conditioning at night.
Take into consideration that there is a difference in hotel prices between the highly touristic season (little rain) and the rainy season.
