August weather in Phuket
August weather in Phuket is still considered the green season, but on average, the rains come in short and heavy bursts with plenty of sunshine between the downpours.
It is rare to see several consecutive days of heavy rain on the island during August.
The days can be quite picturesque with fluffy clouds and sunshine. Then, after the day’s heat, a refreshing downpour can add its own charm and cooling factor.
The best thing about the August weather in Phuket is the fact that it is still a low season.
This means that the island is generally less busy, hotels offer low season rates, and discounts and airfares are certainly a lot more affordable.
August Weather, Fewer visitors.
Not only that but a holiday in Phuket in August may mean you can enjoy the luxury of a beautiful beachside resort. Fewer crowds on the beach as well as in the bars and restaurants. You may even find the tours and taxis are that much cheaper.
The nightlife is more relaxed and there is still a very good chance of plenty of sunshine in paradise along with some sensational sunsets.
Having said that, with the school holidays in Europe, a lot of people opt for August to visit Phuket and take advantage of the low season prices. While the rain may be a factor to consider, generally in August it is seen as a minor inconvenience. After all, even when it rains it’s still very warm, not a major issue.
