Weather end of April/ start of May.


I'm coming to Phuket on the 26th of April through to the 4th of May, was just wondering if anyone will have any idea of what the weather would be like... I know its unpredictable but was just wondering if anyone can give a rough idea?

Very much looking forward to coming along and seeing the beautiful place.

Thanks in advance!

A rough idea would be....There will be sun and there is a high chance of rain during the day or night....!!

However,why worry....??....The mind is made up and you're going to Phuket anyway come rain,hail or shine....

I actually love it when it rains in Thailand....!!....I can guarantee it will not be snowing....

A bit of rain is great. Gives one an opportunity to slip into the nearest restaurant pub etc. for a quick refreshment and a bit of people watching, or maybe a nice massage in one of the many salons around Phuket

We were there last May, bloody hot and hardly any rain. When it did fall it was only for 10-20 minutes then in 1/2 hour it was all dry again. It gives you time to get out of the sun and go for a feed or a drink.

Here now, it is hot and clear in the morning, build up during the day, no rain as yet. Really very nice the past few days. I have travelled a lot in Asia this time of year, agree the thunder storms when they come are actually a relief and don't last too long. My 12 year old always jokes when it rains- better get out of the pool or we a going to get wet! There are things to do if it is a full on rainy day, be flexible and it won' t ruin your time.

Hi, you might get a quick thunderstorm late afternoon or in the evening but that's about it so nothing to worry about.

It should be very hot and humid with a mix of cloud and sun..

Rain .. who knows. maybe some late afternoon/evening downpours maybe you will see no rain.
