Time in Bangkok

Bangkok follows GMT+7.00. The sun normally appears around 06.00 – 07.00 a.m. and it will set around 06.00 – 07.00 p.m. These are good to know but they are not as important as the tips below.

Bangkokbits' Tips on Time

1. Bangkok’s peak hours are from 07.00 – 09.30 a.m. and 05.30 – 07.00 p.m. on weekdays. If possible, avoid travelling during these times. If not, it’s best to travel with BTS, MRT or Airport Rail Link.

2. Thai people are generally not punctual. Therefore, it is recommended to tell them to arrive around 30 minutes earlier than the actual meeting time.

* Please note that this doesn’t apply to every Thai 🙂
