One of my favourite times of the year, the Phuket Weather in November is not packed with tourists. Phuket Vegetarian Festival has been put away, Loy Krathong is here and the island starts to get ready for Christmas and the busy season.
This is a great time to visit some of the Phuket Islands.
Or, even venture into Krabi and perhaps the Khao Sok National Park for a night or two.
The Phuket temples are not so hot or crowded at this time.
Definitely, find time to visit Wat Chalong temple. Pictured on the left.
