Ok this is the Phuket forum isn’t it, I am sure it is or is it the lets turn people off Phuket & send them somewhere else forum.
As soon as someone mentions they are going to Phuket in May, June, July, August, September, October and a few times even November the replies start coming in, doesn’t matter that the original poster might just want a hotel recommendation etc, instantly they are told its monsoon season go to Koh Samui etc etc.
This is really quite funny. Did you know it also rains on KS during high season lol.
Maybe some people who continually say don’t go its MONSOON season had a few days of rain once in Phuket but the whole season is not like that. The weather is beautiful during low season, lots of sunshine, very hot and if it does happen to rain who cares, it doesn’t hang around for long.
Beaches are closed at certain times due to rips but it is not every single day from May to November lol. Just be aware of the red flags. Phi Phi tours will be cancelled by good operators if the weather is bad, Phang Nga tours are in a more sheltered area so are rarely cancelled, everything is still open, you can still do diving & snorkeling tours etc etc.
So if you are planning a holiday to Phuket during low season, do not be put off, just go and have a great time and if it rains well who cares, you’re on holidays & it’s still hot :)
