Best time to go to Phuket
December to March is the best spell to visit Phuket. While the mercury hovers between 31˚C and 34˚C in some parts of Thailand at this time, sea breezes knock the heat down a couple of degrees in places on the coast like Phuket, making for toasty beach holiday weather. It’s warm in November and April, too – but you can expect a day or two of rain. Phuket’s rainy season runs between May and October, the cool season lasts from November to February, and the hot season starts in March. The cool season – despite its chilly-sounding name – is actually a great time to visit the island. Temperatures range from 24˚C to 30˚C and showers are rare.
