How is the Weather in Phuket in October?
In October, the weather in Phuket is not much different from the weather in September, with a mix of sunny and rainy days. It might not be the best month to visit Phuket if you have a choice. However, to be on the positive side, and if you have no choice, this time of the year is cheaper and has a lot more relaxing atmosphere than during the busy high season.
The rain will fall, there is no doubt about it, and it comes in a series of 3, 6 or 9 days, as they always say here. Just pray that it is not during your week! As usual, the sea is warm but can be rough on some days, so book a hotel with a beautiful pool, ideally near the beach, so you can enjoy the beach and swim whenever you feel like it. All the tours operate normally unless severe weather works, which is, fortunately, not often.
On the bright side, the beautiful Islands of Similan reopen in mid-October. It is a bit far from Phuket, but everyone agrees it is so beautiful it is worth the long drive and the boat ride. Similan will be all yours in October, but the seas can still be choppy, so take a motion sickness pill before boarding the speedboat. Usually, the tour companies provide some, but it’s always better to be safe.
