Night time temperatures in March

Hi there,

I will be in Thailand for 2 weeks from 3rd March. Bangkok, Khao Sok National Park and Ko Yao Yai island in the South. I know the days will be hot, I'm wondering how cold it gets at night. Would rather not bring a bulky jacket as I'm backpacking and trying to pack as light as possible. Will I get away with a light sweater?

Thanks for any answers :)

I'd just take a fleece, should be enough with perhaps a light rain jacket for the damp or rain in the park.

I wouldn't bring a bulky jacket just for Thailand. More often I will use a long sleeve shirt for a jacket on long distance buses, trains, movie theaters and maybe on a fast moving boat. I find the A/C sometimes more bothersome than weather. Some planes can be chilly too. Unless you are unusually shaped you can pick up an extra shirt in Thailand, even a cheap rain poncho if necessary.

Some hotels I have been in with good A/C units I have asked for an extra blanket. The cheap places I stay at usually have a blanket or spread covering the bed sheet.

In Bangkok I am mostly in T-shirts and shorts year round unless I am visiting a government office. (For government offices I will put on long pants and a button shirt.)

Good luck.

Thanks for the advice. Fleece and rain jacket sounds like a good shout. Also I hadn't thought about being able to buy something extra over there if I get stuck.

I think the coldest part will be travelling to and from the airport in London!

Agree with SR. I'm in Bangkok right now and have been here in March in the past. Never had the need for a long sleeved shirt during that time.....even in the evening.

Shorts and short sleeved tops always for me.
