For a beach destination like Phuket, the rainy season usually means better rates, especially when it comes to hotel accommodations. You can usually find special offers for hotels in Phuket during this time since it will be their off-peak or low season.
Being a tropical country, Thailand’s rainy season starts in the middle of May and lasts until October. If you’ll visit Phuket within this time, don't let the rains put a damper on your plans. Here are some things you can do to have a great holiday:
Get a Massage or Spa Treatment
You can get a traditional Thai massage on almost any street in Phuket. Thai massage has many benefits, including relaxation and better sleep. It also helps relieve aching muscles and improve blood circulation. If you have time, why not add a spa treatment like a facial or body scrub.
Visit Historical and Cultural Spots
Phuket has many indoor attractions you can spend time in when it’s rainy. Visit Old Phuket Town’s Peranakannitat or Baba Museum and Thai Hua Museum to learn about Phuketian history and culture. Walk around former homes turned museums such as Baan Chinpracha and Baan Ar Jor House and imagine how life used to be. Take fun photos at an interactive 3D museum and the Upside Down house, and learn about marine life at the Phuket Aquarium.
There are many restaurants to choose from, depending on the cuisine you’re craving. Many famous restaurants in Old Town are located inside renovated historical buildings and serve local Thai dishes, seafood, as well as Phuketian delicacies. Phuket’s culinary scene also has a wide variety of international restaurants, such as Japanese, Indian, Italian, and French, among others, to cater to its diverse population of locals and visitors.
Learn Something New
A trip to Phuket during the rainy season is a great time to take a lesson in something you’re interested in. Join a workshop to learn authentic Thai cooking, traditional fruit carving, Thai massage, or herbal candle-making. If you prefer more physical activities, many fitness centers offer yoga and muay thai classes.
Phuket’s commercial area has large malls and outlet shops you can spend hours in when it’s pouring outside. Most shopping malls have a mix of local and international brands, restaurants, and food courts, plus movie theaters and children’s play areas.
