The weather in Phuket In April remains beautiful and clear. The sea is still calm, and the weather is as warm as a bath. In April, the temperatures start to raise seriously and can reach some of the highest peaks of the year. If you travelled on a short budget and picked one of the few hostels without air con and just a fan, you better be ready for some hot nights, but all hotels in Phuket are well prepared, and air conditioning is expected to provide comfortable temperatures in your room.
April being so hot each year, it is also the occasion to celebrate the famous Songkran festival, where people shower each other copiously for several days (and nights). It’s fun for most, but if you don’t like getting wet and partying wild, consider avoiding the Songkran week (whose dates vary each year).
Born in France a long long time ago, I started to travel the world early and never stopped until I settled in Thailand in 1994. Then for the past 27 years, my passion for photography and my natural curiosity has taken me to every corner of Thailand, jumping frequently between Bangkok and Phuket and basically everywhere I could go. I run Phuket101.net and manage large international online travel guides.
