Monsoon Season in Phuket Thailand – Good time to travel for a holiday? How is the weather in Phuket?

Generally is to say that the climate in Phuket is tropical and always warm, but it has two climates during the year, two different monsoon seasons. Many people think that monsoon means rain, but it describes rather from which directions the wind is blowing.

North East Monsoon

Runs usually beginning of November and last until mid – maybe end of May. This wind brings clear skies and mostly good weather, but being an exposed tropical island some rain storms always can occur. Since you can expect good weather – and it is cold and nasty in other parts of the world – this is the so called high season. It is the preferred time to visit Phuket.

South East Monsoon

Blows usually from mid May until end of October and can bring strong winds, rain and thunderstorms. Speaking about storms. Phuket islands do not have taiphoon’s or tropical cyclones, because it is well protected by the surrounding main land of Thailand.

This so called low or wet season is actually a fantastic time to visit Phuket for several reasons.

The prices for flights and hotels are down, the island is not so crowded and everything is much more relaxed.

It might be that you are unlucky and get some rainy days or a thunderstorm, but then there is still plenty to do in your holidays in Phuket Thailand.

A good option is to charter a yacht, rent a boat with Phuket Boatcharter. It is very safe, since we only do coastal cruising and you still can visit the islands around Phuket.

And: you always can do watersports like snorkeling, swimming, kayaking from your floating hotel, which is anchored in a protected bay.

Many times going swimming from a beach can be very dangerous. Big waves are causing strong surf making it impossible to enter the water safely. PLEASE always follow the instructions of the lige guards!

To summarize: Phuket is a good destination to visit year round, but if you want to save some money and get good deals, the so called wet season is perfect to visit for a tropical holiday.

Speedboat Trips in Phuket Thailand have somewhat a bad reputation, which in many cases is justified.

But a Speedboat / Power Catamaran Trip in Phuket can be a very enjoyable day or Overnight Trip if you book a a Private Charter. You just will be with your friends and / or family for a fantastic holiday treat to discover the beauties of the Andaman Sea.

The speedboat “Honey Bunny” is perfect for smaller groups up to 6 guests and the dedicated crew will good take care of you and bring you to the best destinations in Phang Nga Bay Thailand or Ko Mai Ton Phuket. Further destinations like Phi Phi Island or Krabi for private trips are possible as well.

Best Restaurants and eating places in Phuket Thailand

 

Cococnut on Naiharn Beach Phuket

The food variety in Phuket is immense.  Hundreds of restaurants, if not scratching the thousand, are catering for everything you are hungry / looking /craving for. Be it a simple burger, a pizza, kebab or a six course French Gourmet Dinner delight in one of the many 5 star restaurants / hotels on the island. You will find it all.

And of course there is the Thai Food. Probably one of the best cuisine on this planet. The ingredients are always fresh and include everything from veggies, pork, beef, chicken and – naturally being on an island – seafood.

Where to find the places that serve the best Thai Food? Not different to your home country.  For a hearty and affordable meal you will not go to the Hilton, you visit the restaurant in your neighborhood.

And here Thailand beats it all. You can eat 24 hours and the meals many time are on wheels – the sidecar kitchens. They offer everything from noodles, rice, curries, BBQ sausages, spare rips, pancakes, fruits, ice cream and yes, even insects.

Fresh chicken from the oven - delicious

You will find them in Phuket as well all over the place. They drive around and stop at certain places.

Some will gather every evening at one location and stay there for the night. A wonderful place is on the beach road in Kalim.

Picnic at the beach road in Kalim Phuket

Just bring your beach mat, get all you need (a Family Mart is nearby for beers etc.) and just picnic on the pavement.

Even in touristy Patong you will find on Sai Nam Yen, many local eateries, some of them open until very late, some of them even 24 hours.  Depending on what you order you walk away with two dishes and rice for a mere THB 50. Not even 2 US-$.

Restaurant in Sai Nam Yen Patong open until late

Great Thai Cuisine is always found in Phuket Town, which is anyhow a must to visit.

Since eating good and often is a very important part of the daily Thai life, the food is always super fresh and very tasty. If an outlet is not serving good quality it is soon out of business.

How to choose?  Just visit the well visited places and you can be sure, you will get served a great dish.

Enjoy!
