I went in April which was just after the "peak" (aka touristy) season and it was suppose to have good chance of rain. Luckily throughout the day it was sunny without a cloud in the sky (literally), but then 2 nights it would rain buckets for about 30 mins and then clear up like nothing happened. From what I'm told that's pretty much how April - November is suppose to be. Then I guess that makes the other months "dry" months, which would explain all the tourists flocking in from North Europe to get away from the brutal winters.

I think if you are on a budget, then go in the off-peak, sure you might stand a chance of having some rain, but if you stay long enough you will get plenty of sun. On the other hand, if you pay a premium to go in the peak, you will enjoy the sun, but it will be crowded!

The first time I came to Phuket was only a few weeks after the Boxing Day tsunami and, although boats were running …Phuket was in August, and the cloudy weather and high winds didn’t exactly encourage boat trips and snorkelling. For this…
