Our verdict

The best time to visit Bangladesh is March

Bangladesh is a place lots of people visit almost all year round, but if you’re looking for the best time to go, March is definitely the time you should visit. This is based on a number of factors such as the weather, cost of flights and accommodation, peak travel periods and more.

In summer, the daytime temperatures in central Dhaka, Bangladesh can reach a top of 39℃ (102℉). The weather at night in the winter, which is around January-time, can get down to a minimum of 13℃ (56℉) in Dhaka. Other destinations in Bangladesh can sometimes get even colder than this, so if you’re planning on visiting a few different places, make sure you check out the climate comparison table below.

The days are longest in Bangladesh in April, so if you want to see the sights during the day when the sun is up for the longest time, it’s best to visit around that time of year. May sees the most amount of rain in a month if you’re ok with chancing getting drenched, so if you’re looking to stay dry, visit in January instead.
