Knowing the best time to visit Bangladesh will help you prepare your holiday getaway in this charming country in South Asia. The country has a tropical to sub-tropical climate with three, distinct seasons.
Here’s a quick guide on the country’s climate and the best time to visit Bangladesh:
Monsoon Season. Happening between May and October, the monsoon season may mean more rain during this time. this season supplies most of the country’s rainfall, replenishing rivers and making everything green and alive again. The worst thing you could expect during this time of the year is severe flooding, which has claimed many lives and destroyed property on September of 1998.
Cool Season. Occurring between October to February, the cool season means bluer skies and milder weather with temperatures going as low as 24 degrees Celsius. It’s also the best time to visit Bangladesh as you won’t be dealing with heavy rains, heat and humidity.
Hot Season. The temperature starts to rise on March and continues to rise by mid-May. Humidity, too, is at an all-time high during this time. Unless you can tolerate the heat and humidity, this may not be the best time to go to Bangladesh. Hailstorms, too, aren’t uncommon during this time of the year.
One more thing to consider when going to Bangladesh is that a cyclone could hit every three years, particularly in the months of May, June, October and November, so it’s best to check the weather reports before heading out to Bangladesh during this time of the year.
Other considerations. Ramadan period can be quite an inconvenience for travellers and visitors as the period of fasting may mean difficulty in obtaining food. Most restaurants and establishments may be closed during this time of the year and budget hotels may also be halting operations during Ramadan season.
