Phuket Weather Update 28 Jan/03 Feb 2014
Here is the latest weather report for those keeping a check on your next holiday destination.
The Weather just keeps getting better and this time of year is still very steady and quite mild for Thailand, the cooler winds blowing down from the North seem to be slowing and the temperature is rising slightly. Being February and as the rest northern hemisphere is still suffering the winter blues Phuket is basking in its more favorable time of the year.
There is still a little confusion with the problems in Bangkok. But this is no reason not to come to Phuket as there are many flights each day from European airports direct to Phuket. Even So flying to Phuket via Phuket is very straight forward.
Come and enjoy as Phuket benefits from these cooler winds, although we are in February now Phuket basks in glorious sunshine, it is the humidity that has been switched off. The weather this time of year does not change too much, but it is pretty much near perfect.
It is this weather in the winter months that attracts mass migration from European shores to the wonderful tranquil beaches of Phuket.
It’s also perfect weather for one of our Snorkeling trips.

As Chinese New Year has now started in Phuket, it has gotten a little busier than normal and accommodation is a little hard to come best to book in advance other than just turning up. A lot of the action over this festival is located in Phuket Town.
Wat Chalong Fair is probably the biggest of all temple fairs on the island. It was first started in 1933 by local farmers who lived near and around Wat Chalong.
