Phuket weather update from 1st til 22 May 2015

The much expected rain didn't arrive and so we still have flat sea, no wind and no waves. Despite all forecast stills showing rain and storms nothing really happen.

One thing is sure, it is very hot and we need rain to refill reserves. As said sea is lovely so people can enjoy all tours and low rates at hotels.

Last minute update from Phuket, yesterday (24 May) and today we had first serious rainfalls, Sunday rain for all afternoon. While today just from 16:00 hrs til evening. Wind pick ed up with waves in open sea up to one meter.

This was well awaited for specially as Phuket was facing a water shortage.
