What’s the weather like in Asia in August?
If you’re heading to Asia for a relaxing luxury holiday this month, then you can expect warm temperatures and plenty of sunshine. The Asia weather in August has an average temperature of 17°C across the continent, with hotspots such as Goa, Kuala Lumpur and Bangkok much hotter.

August is one of the wetter months in Thailand and the west coast Indian resort of Goa. Here you’ll get some short and sharp downpours most days, but often this can feel very refreshing and the water soon dries because of the high temperatures.
Bring your sunglasses, sunhat and sunblock because the weather in Asia in August should be very nice for exploring its amazing cities and beaches. The average daytime temperature in Bangkok, Thailand, will be 30°C. In Goa it’ll be 28°C and Beijing should see highs of 30°C.

Sunshine levels are very impressive at this time and you can expect around 13 hours each day on average.
