Every year, during the rainy season, the weeks alternate nicely between clear skies, cloudy days, and a few rainy days, usually in the evening or at night.

As usual, during the rainy season, it is recommended to book a hotel with a nice swimming pool so you can sunbathe and swim as much as you want even when the sea is rough out there. It is really important to respect the swimming flags. If the flag is red, don’t swim! Even if you consider yourself an excellent swimmer, you will be surprised by how strong the current is! If you really want to swim in the sea, try Tri Trang Beach near Patong, it is usually quieter than other beaches of Phuket but use your common sense.

On the good side

Prices in Phuket are lower and bargaining is easier and more rewarding than in high season, however, keep in mind that locals are also trying to make a living. If you are in Patong and you are not in a rush, shop at OTOP market or Chillva Market rather than on Bangla Walking Street, you will get much better prices!

What to pack?

As usual in Phuket, only take light clothing as it never ever gets cold here. Just add a very light raincoat and a foldable umbrella you can carry around without worry and you will be all set. All these can also be bought very easily anywhere on the island.

Born in France a long long time ago, I started to travel the world early until I settled in Phuket in 1994. For the past 30 years, my passion for photography and my curiosity have taken me to every corner of Phuket, Bangkok and everywhere I could go in Thailand. My goal is to share my discoveries, photos and tips to help travellers plan their holidays by making Phuket 101 as easy as possible to use for everyone!
