Welcome in July, normally weather in Phuket in July isn't so bad. Same rain for sure, it is normal during Summer. But not strong wind and big waves.
Here can compare with July 2013
The first two weeks of July saw mainly rain and very strong wind, the situation was affected by Typhoon Neoguri that formed in the China Sea off shore in Philippines and then directed to Japan.
Its was a strong and big event that affected also the weather here in Phuket. So we started with rain on the 1st July.
This day also marked the begin of Ramadan for Muslim people, fasting now all day for one month, Big meals and a lot of food going at night among the Muslim communities in Phuket.
Then from 2nd to 5th July weather in Phuket has been quiet good, with sunshine, still strong wind and offshore waves were between two and three meters. During these days we had an important news in Phuket. All chairs and small business were removed from Patong beach. This action on line with new national laws aimed to put order on the beaches. now they are a bit less comfortable but surely back to their original beauty. More space, less noise and rubbish.

The Cultural street at Kathu is one of that things to not miss when thinking what to do in Phuket during a rain or cloudy day. A lot of food sold on the street, can see some of Phuket's culture and history and enjoy a great shopping at very local market.
