Phuket Weather And Best Time To Visit Phuket

Planning A Trip To Phuket? Here's a snapshot of Phuket weather and the best time to visit Phuket Town

Phuket is an island in the Andaman Sea, home to the rainforests, sands and seas of Thailand. Blessed with a tropical climate, Phuket has some of the most stunning scenes of nature waiting for travelers. The best time to visit Phuket Town is between December and March. The northeastern monsoon sets in at this time and the mainland blocks the monsoon rains, leaving only cool breeze and blue skies for your holiday.

May, September and October are highly wet months.
