Phuket Weather And Best Time To Visit Phuket
Phuket is an island in the Andaman Sea, home to the rainforests, sands and seas of Thailand. Blessed with a tropical climate, Phuket has some of the most stunning scenes of nature waiting for travelers. The best time to visit Phuket Town is between December and March. The northeastern monsoon sets in at this time and the mainland blocks the monsoon rains, leaving only cool breeze and blue skies for your holiday.
Summer (March to mid-May)
March to mid May marks the sultry summer of Phuket and is considered the hottest. The temperature varies over the 30 degrees Celsius mark with very high humidity. One of the plus points of visiting Phuket Town during summer is the Songkran festival and the Thai New Year, both celebrated in April.
Monsoon (mid-May to October)
The real monsoon in Phuket Town starts in mid-May, carrying on till October. The average temperature is around 28 degree Celsius. The highly humid weather results in a steep drop in rates and makes this the cheapest season for travellers. This time is also virtually tourist free and gives you a lot of peace and calm to explore. May, September and October are highly wet months.
Winter (November to February)
November is the onset of a cooler season on the island. But there is really no winter in Phuket. With average temperatures around 24-32 degree Celsius, the humidity is at its lowest. This season makes for the perfect time to lounge on beaches, go snorkeling and absorb the best that the island has to offer.
