How is the weather in Phuket in August?

Phuket weather in August may see a little more rain than in July since it is the peak of the rainy season. Once again, the rainy season doesn’t mean it will rain every day or all day, visitors will be able to enjoy some sunny days, and the temperature is not more comfortable than in the scorching previous months.

The sea and the swimming pools are warm all year round, about 30˚C, so swimming is always possible. However, remember that the ocean rip tides can be treacherous in August, and you should respect the red flags. Booking a hotel with a nice swimming pool is a great way to enjoy a good swim and a relaxed afternoon with a drink by the water.

On the bright side, the island is more peaceful, has fewer traffic jams, and the beaches are all yours. Sea can be rough, so respect the flags and pick a hotel with a nice pool and a spa, and you will have a fantastic holiday.


What to Do in Phuket in August?

With a 50-50 % chance of rain, we recommend enjoying the beach whenever the sun shines and keeping the island exploration for cloudy or even rainy days. The tours to the islands around Phuket normally run all year round and are only cancelled when the weather turns awful, which is rather rare. If you really want to see fantastic landscapes, Phang Nga Bay is even more beautiful with dramatic skies, and because immense limestone cliffs protect it, the sea is always calm! (no need for motion sickness medicine).

Exploring Phuket Old Town can be done under any weather, the streets are beautiful, and there are many boutiques, coffee shops and restaurants in old heritage houses to take a break as you explore. Besides, the cooler temperatures make it more comfortable to walk around without sweating.

And as always, spa treatments and shopping malls are the first places that come to mind to spend an occasional wet day. Just remember to call your hotel spa as soon as it rains if you wish to enjoy a treatment because many guests in your hotel will probably have the same idea!

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 and manage large international online travel guides.
