Is January a good time to visit Phuket?

Phuket weather in January is usually as perfect as it gets. The sky is spotless, the sea is crystal clear and quiet, and the temperature is perfect, cooler than in other months. This is how everyone imagines what a tropical island should look like. Of course, the best month of the year means that prices will be high, mostly for hotels, and there will be traffic on the roads and many people on the beach. Can’t have it all…. or can’t we? If you read us for a long time you already know that we recommend the north beaches during high and peak seasons. The beaches are superb and still relatively quiet, and unless you came to the party a lot, you will find enough great hotels, restaurants and shops for a fun and comfortable holiday.

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.
