Best Time to Visit Phuket, Thailand

Phuket's tropical climate makes the city an inviting vacation destination year round but there are high and low seasons that have both pros and cons.

The high season in Phuket runs from November through March. November and December are part of Phuket's rainy season, although rain is less frequent, traffic is heavy and prices for accommodations are still high. During January and February, the weather is near perfect with moderate temperatures in the mid-60s and minimal rainfall. Visitors will have plenty of sunshine for beach excursions, and the water is calm creating ideal conditions for diving, snorkeling, and boating.

January is the busiest month and visitors can expect the highest rates for accommodations, higher prices when shopping, and crowded streets and beaches. February continues with pleasant temperatures but crowds and congestion is still to be expected. While prices are still high, there is a possibility of discounts later in the month.

March maintains comfortable temperatures and minimal rainfall. Traffic remains busy. During March, hotels begin offering special discounts.

If hot weather is your preference, April ends the high season and the moderate temperatures. Expect hotter days and an increased chance of rain. Water conditions are less stable for activities. April is also the month the Songkran Water Festival is celebrated increasing crowded conditions. Hotel rates are usually lower during April.

Phuket, Thailand in a nutshell

Phuket is known to many as home to one of many beautiful beaches in Thailand. The island has been countless times as backdrops and settings for movies and has been widely featured in travel and living shows and with good reason. Phuket is Thailand's largest island and is home to various attractions from beautiful beaches to popular night spots. Phuket derives its economy from tourism and it has experienced a great market and boom thus far. During the 2004 tsunami, the island's tourism and economy was greatly affected. However, the island has undergone major developments and restorations that have brought back the beauty that enticed travelers from all over the world. Beaches in Phuket are well developed and dotted with hotels, restaurants, and nightclubs. Popular beaches in the island include Hat Patong and Hat Karon. Water sport activities are popular in the area and is a must try for thrill-seekers. Phuket, being a cultural melting pot, is also home to several must-see attractions including Two Heroines Monument, View Point, Wat Chalong, Thalang National Museum, Khao Phra Thaeo Wildlife Conservative Development and Extension Centre, and Laem Phromthep. Travelers that have been to Phuket experience a natural revival from the beauty of the sea and the rich culture that surrounds this magnificent island.

Captain Francis Light, the man responsible for bringing world's attention to Phuket by successfully defending it from the frequent attacks of Burmese navy, is commonly attributed with the remark of, 'This Island, right here, is a heaven on this world, and I find it my duty to keep it safe.'
Well, subtracting the stigma of vanity from these words, the essence we are left with doesn't belie the fact that Phuket, for many, is a heaven on this earth. 

Phuket Province, the province that houses the Island of Phuket, is spread over various islands forming an archipelago of sorts that are interconnected with bridges, canals and waterways. Phuket is the most famous and globally renowned island among these, and attracts over 5 million tourists every year. 

The history of Phuket has seen ups and down like few other places. Once an uninhabited island, Indian settlers founded settlements on Phuket Island over 2,000 years ago. Since then, the fortunes have waxed and waned with regularity for the island. During the course of the history, Phuket has been an important trading pit stop for various traders who dealt between India and China via the Andaman Sea. Later on, after the British took over the region, Phuket became an island of no significance. As Dutch settlers found tin on the island, the fortunes again turned for Phuket, as it became an important trading post for the British, next only to Singapore and Hong Kong. 

Today, Phuket is solely known for its tourism and associated revenue generators. From pristine beaches and deep blue patches calm and composed sea waters to tall curtains of coconut trees and surreal statues of Buddha at every cornerstone make Phuket a daylight delight. But as the night arrives, the tranquillity of the day fades and the insanity of Phuket nightlife takes over. This is something that every tourist must experience through their own eyes. Phuket won't disappoint many. 

Budget Hotels in Phuket 

Based on the pricing front of it, there are over 200 budget hotels in Phuket. These budget establishments cannot guarantee you the best of stays, but more often than not, a budget hotel will be good enough to make your stay in Phuket more economical, allowing you to spend a little more on sightseeing and local shopping. If you are traveling with family or with valuable belongings, it is best advised that you opt to pay a little more in order to stay at a safer hotel, rather than a cheaper one. Tourists from western countries are especially advised to be cautious while negotiating with the hotel management as the instances of extravagant prices being charged through ignorance and lack of communication are quite commonly reported by tourists. 

Luxury Hotels in Phuket 

There are travelers who have to manage their wanderlust on a shoestring budget, and then there are travelers who are fortunate enough to be able to connive at extra expenses in order to get the better services. Phuket hotels of luxurious kind are certainly the option that the latter kind of tourists should have no hesitation in opting for. 

Being a phenomenally popular tourist destination, Phuket is home to numerous luxury hotel establishments that are at par, if not above par, the luxury standards set in major cities like Paris and London. These luxury hotels in Phuket add quite a bit of extra grandeur and pleasure to the already pleasurable trip to Phuket for thousands of travelers. 

Amanpuri is probably the most popular of such resorts in Phuket. It is a traditionally equipped luxury beach resort that houses over 60 suites and independent villas that boast of modern amenities like indoor heated pools and traditional pleasures like luxury Nuru massage spas for tantric healing and the peace of mind. Trisara Phuket is the next name in line for the award of the best luxury hotel in Phuket. It allows its patrons to get the best of both western and oriental worlds by combining the tastiest of cuisines from all over the world, prepared by the most renowned chefs in Thailand. 

Marriott Beach Resort & Spa is not too far behind, as it combines the brand name of Marriott with the tempting local beaches and flavours, working its charm on its magnanimous patrons. 

Boutique and Independent Hotels in Phuket 

Adding to the list of many hotel establishments in Phuket, a passing mention of boutique and independent villas and bungalows from the colonial British era cannot be out of order. These bungalows offer the ease of home along with the feel of British Raj, at rates that can easily compete with other cheap Phuket hotels that are present in plenty all around. 

Hotels Near Airport in Phuket 

Phuket Int. Airport has experienced steadily increasing traffic throughout the last decade or so, as the word of mouth and coverage in some famous movies like The Beach has popularized Phuket as a pleasure island in the east. Nearby this airport, travelers can find a slew of cheap hotels that are, if not always appealing, get the job done. Approaching such places with caution and apprehension is always advised, as some of these places are notorious for xenophobia and questionable practices. The best course of action is always to lodge with a hotel of repute instead of shady and cheap hotels. 

Best Time to Travel to Phuket

Phuket is a typical tropical island that is fortunate enough to have a more or less steady weather throughout the year, without much fluctuations. The weather overall is on the warmer side, as one would come to expect for tropical places. Rain is also a very common occurrence in Phuket, as locals don't even take heed of rains that are not substantially heavy. Two months, September and October, are, however, considered to be the hottest in the whole year as the island experiences heavy monsoon rainfalls during these two months. Barring these two months, the weather in Phuket should not be much of a concern to tourists. January to May are generally considered to be the best months to travel to Phuket.
