Phuket Weather update 6th to 16th June 2015

It is heavy rain since Sunday night and seems will be like this for next couple of days. The good news is that it is normal for the period and it is good for the forest and the water reserves.

Clouds cover Kathu hills - a rainy day today

Being an all year destination Phuket has always a lot of people that come to visit for the beaches, the sea and the informal and amusing atmosphere

So what to do now if you are here and it is raining a lot?

First of all enjoy holidays anyway, air temperature is between 26 and 30 Celsius and water temperature is above 28 Celsius.

Can see from the two pictures on this article that the situation can be very different just few km south of Phuket. This because the fat clouds full of water are coming from west and Phuket hills attract them and rain falls. The hills works like a wall leaving areas on the east side sheltered from rain.

So could be good to stay in Phi Phi for few days.

Another easy option is to move to Koh Samui where weather is much better at the moment and can fully enjoy holidays
