Is October a good time to visit Phuket?

October weather in Phuket is not much different from the weather in September, with a mix of sun and rain. 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 the most challenging lucky draw.

Phuket rainy 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 cost of living is lower, the roads are quieter, and the beautiful Similan Islands reopen in October.

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.
