Thinking about heading to Phuket at the end of November, but am a little worried by the forecast. I realize that Phuket gets a pretty good amount of its rain in November and weather.com certainly seems to show this--with thunderstorms each day.

Is it just going to be a torrential downpour the entire time, or will we be able to take in some decent sun on the beach?

Thanks,

I was there in November 2 years ago and the weather was fine. Warm and sunny during the day with a passing thunderstorm in the late afternoon.

Great Thread!!! My fiancee and I have set the date for 10/10/10, and we want to go to Thailand! Big grin

Places of interest are Bangkok as well as Phuket. Given the date, we're looking into mid-late October as well, so this should be interesting. I also think that roughly July - November is their rainy season, but that does not mean that it rains almost non-stop. I think amost every day you'll see maybe one or two showers/T'showers, and they last about 2 hours at a time. I heard that when it rains, it poors (no not like in the cliche!)...

I got all of that out of a travel book on Thailand by fiancee bought at a book store while visiting friends and family back in the Burgh...

Plus, if you go during the rainy season (again, it's not a 24/7 rain, as stated above), the rooms are dirt cheap at many of the hotels. You can stay at some resort-and-spa places for as little as $40-60 a night!  Smile



Do not bring stranger girt into your room. The stranger girt is dangerous, it will hurt your life.

I went in November last year and I got back from Malaysia and Singapore last week. Had very little rain throughout the trip. Probably about 1.5 days out of ten in total. Since Phuket is on the west coast, it's not as affected by the seasonal monsoons that the east coast gets that this time of year. Usually the down pours are sudden and predictable and are over pretty quickly. I wouldn't let it put you off travelling there at this time of year, but simply be prepared (Unlike me in Singapore on Thursday when I left my umbrella at the hotel)
