IDEAL Real Estate

Here's a few things you might want to know if you have never visited Phuket before. We have written the following based on our own experience of living in Phuket for a number of years.

Climate

Phuket weather


Phuket has two seasons - wet and dry. The dry season is from November to March when there is typically very little rainfall and temperatures are in the range 30-32 degrees C daytime and 24-28 degrees C at night. Sunshine hours are high with relatively few overcast days. This is the most pleasant season to visit Phuket and this is reflected in slightly higher holiday accommodation prices in what is known as the "high season". Swimming, diving and snorkelling conditions are at their best during this time of year.
 
The wet season is from April to October. Daytime temperature is in the range 28-34 degrees C, night time 26-30. Rainfall during this period is highly variable. There can be long spells of several weeks when there is little or no rain and, especially in September-October, it can rain regularly. Typically rain is confined to a one or more heavy showers during the day or at night. Sunshine hours are lower during the wet season.

Things To Do

Where To Eat

Phuket is spoilt for choice when it comes to eating out. For the best Thai food, you normally have to travel away from the more popular tourist destinations such as Patong, Kata and Karon and head south west to Phuket Town or Chalong. Here are some of our suggestions for the best Thai food in Phuket.
