Phuket Weather in October ☁️🌧️

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.

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.

Similan Islands

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.

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!
