ClimatePhuket has a tropical climate, more specifically a tropical monsoon climate, with a dry season from November to April and a rainy season from May to October. Average temperatures are consistent year-round. Average highs range from 29C to 33C; average lows range from 23C to 26C.Phuket has three seasons. The cool season (actually quite hot), the hot season (very hot), and the rainy season (hot and wet). The climate is dictated by the monsoon winds. That is the direction of the prevailing winds caused by the difference in the way oceans and land retain heat. The cool season is from November to February. The northeast winds start sometime in November bringing an end to the rainy season. The cool season is the best time of year to visit Phuket. This is Phuket`s high-season with the peak of visitors coming over the Christmas and New Year period.

The hot season is from March to early May. The weather is dry and the skies blue but the temperature is a little too hot for comfort. This is mid-season for Phuket. The monsoon winds from the southwest start in April or May and bring the rain. The highest rainfall comes in May, September and October. However, June, July and August are good months to visit. During these three months, there will be plenty of rain but it usually falls in short heavy bursts. In between, the weather is pleasant with comfortable temperatures and a cooling breeze. There will often be periods of several days without any rain.


For the hungry travellers, food and drink in Phuket never poses a problem, and even the cheapest, and smallest place will still produce spectacular Thai dishes.

Thai cooking is based on fusion of strong flavours. The five flavours of Thai cooking are spicy, sour, salty, sweet and bitter. These flavours are combined to produce dishes of startling intensity that burst onto the taste buds. Thai dishes are generally eaten with rice or noodles to disperse the intensity of the flavours. The intensity of the five flavours can be varied to match the taste of the consumer. When Thais order food they will often specify how spicy, sour, swet, etc. they want the dish prepared.
