Phuket is a mountainous island in the Andaman Sea. It has some of the most beautiful beaches in Thailand. The weather in Phuket varies between warm, cool, and rainy. But it never gets too cold though.
If you think that Phuket is all about beaches and it has no culture, you may be surprised to find that there’s more to Thailand than the most popular beaches, sand, sea, and sun. Just head to the island’s east coast all your way to “Phuket town” the cultural capital, to know all about the island’s history, the busy markets, and the old shophouses.
You can take a ferry from Phuket to the famous Koh Phi Phi or visit the mystical Phang Nga Bay. You will easily find many trips from Phuket to enjoy Krabi and all the nearby islands. Thai is the official language in Thailand. But you can find that tourist operators speak English but still, just to be safe, you might need to carry a Thai phrasebook.

Best time to visit
From December to March is the best time to visit Phuket for beach activities. You can enjoy the good weather and the small crowd in the month of November. If the crowd doesn’t bother you, then December and January bring the most amazing weather of all. The other six months are monsoon season, the accommodation prices are way lower these months but the water can be dangerous, and it is hard to find a trip by ferry or a speedboat because of the water conditions.
