As the largest island in Thailand, Phuket is a very popular tourist destination for people from all over the world, and it's no wonder. Phuket has everything you could dream of for your holiday: beautiful beaches, wonderful sightseeing, wild nightlife, nature activities, delicious food, and ancient cultural traditions.
As a popular tourist destination, Phuket has many different options for getting around. Be wary, as both can be very expensive on the island; look for metered taxis if possible, and negotiate rates. There are also local buses (songthaews), which run from Phuket Town to the beaches around the island. Alternatively, you can rent a car or motorbike for greater freedom to explore.
It will usually feel like summer when you're in Phuket, as it is located close to the equator. The average high is 32°C (90°F), and the average ‘low’ is 25°C (77°F). You might experience bouts of rain during the monsoon season in September and October; but with average temperatures of 28°C (82°F), the rain will cool you down! The dry season is from December to March, and the wet season is from April to November. You can do most of the activities any time of the year, as it usually rains only once or twice during the rainy months.
