Checking the Phuket Weather Forecast and when to go?
In truth, there is no bad time to visit Phuket – do your research and you’ll not likely be disappointed.
It is also nice for you to note that in other parts of the world it may snow or freeze, Phuket is tropical, it is always warm. The temperature generally stays between some nights to as low as 22 and 34 Celsius during the day, throughout Phuket Island.
When it comes to Phuket’s temperature and weather conditions, the region owes its warm tropical temperature to its close proximity to the equator. The presence of warm waters straight from the Andaman Sea and the Indian Ocean. This makes the weather remain warm all year round with it most of the time hovering at an average of 28°C with the ocean breeze keeping everything cool.
Phuket weather can be described in a number of ways, hot, cool and low, high and low, high and green and a number of other suggestions for the “seasons”.
If you’re planning to visit soon below are the coming months. You can also read the weather predictions for the next 30 days and stay up to date.
Let’s focus on Two Seasons.
November to April and May to October.
The typical tourist High Season is December through to April. The hottest months are February, March, and April, usually no rain, the wind is consistent from the North East, and sometimes a late thunderstorm. There is little or no rainfall at this time. The odd thunderstorm usually helps to cool down the high temperature. There is, however, high humidity which combined with the high temperature can be uncomfortable. The humidity will keep on building up till April when you will experience the first serious thunderstorms in the region.
The month of May can be indifferent as the wind and weather patterns change 180 degrees and the wind now comes from the west. Brings with it a wet period and many high seasons on the West Coast.
Swimmers need to take full notice of the lifeguards if they are going to the sea, far too many people don’t.
PLEASE be aware of the rougher seas during the months May to October.
Some beaches suffer from rip tide effects and will have a strong undertow (though they are usually well marked).
It is not always safe to swim as the sea reacts to the weather.
Swimming for children in particular is probably not safe unless you seek protected waters on the bay side of the island.
ASK before going in if the beach is not marked.
Phuket does get rain, humidity and lots of wonderful tropical sunshine.
If you haven’t visited the tropics and you’re in Phuket when a tropical storm runs through boy oh boy will you experience some big raindrops? A torrential downpour like you have never seen, and then just like magic two hours later beautiful sunshine, everything dries up and life goes on.
Here’s how Phuket compares to other areas of Thailand.

Looking at the details when should you visit?
You’ll hear many opinions about the best time of year to visit Phuket but in fact, the truth is that it depends on you and what you like.
November to April
If you enjoy the nightlife and crowds, November to April is a good time to come. If you are a people watcher, it is also a fun time, the sun is hot usually around 32c sit on the beaches. sip a beer, listen to some music, take some photos and watch people walk by. Winter is also the time of year when the sea is much calmer and clearer during this season, which makes swimming in the ocean very safe and so perhaps better for scuba diving, snorkelling and swimming in the sea.
During the months of November to April, as Phuket is just in the Northern Hemisphere it is winter, and many tourists from much colder Europe, Scandinavia, and Russia visit.
May to October
May to October many Australians and Kiwis here come away from their winters to the Phuket summer. There is around the year-round Chinese tourist business and many other nationalities now coming to Phuket thanks to lower-cost flights and an abundance of accommodation.
So the question should not be for the best time to visit Phuket but it should rather be “the best time you would want to visit Phuket”. So you see, the question is quite personal, here is a list of quality hotels.
January, hello 2022 Phuket is ready.
The Phuket weather in January, blue skies temperatures at 32°C warm and crystal clear sea, white sand and an average of 8 hours sunshine a day.
Did you know the Phuket weather in January is probably one of the best months of the year, along with December and February? It is high season.

Phuket weather in April can be some of the best times to visit. Fancy a ‘water fight’.
April in Phuket brings the high season to an end and the Thai New Year along with the Songkran Festival.
Like April, the Phuket Weather in May is a pretty hot month.
Towards the middle of the month, the heat reduces, rainfall gradually increases

The heat from April and May gives way to more clement weather, and time to visit.
