Phuket in November is considered the official start of the high season, but rainfall can still be prominent in this month, particularly during the first two weeks. This year Phuket has seen bursts of heavy rainfall from July as the monsoon made its way across Asia.
In the last few months, the monsoon has let loose with daily showers amidst periods of sun. Luckily for us, Phuket still provides plenty to do no matter what the weather. Read more about rainy day activities in Phuket.
