Weather and things to do in Redang

Hello! I am thinking about visiting Redang in winter maybe February, heard the weather gets pretty bad so I wanted to ask ..How bad? Ive been to Phuket during the monsoon season is it in anyway similar?

And also I was wondering if there is any nightlife on the island?

Many thanks in advance :)

Redang is not the island to go if nightlife is your priority. Also Phuket is a big island with proper towns on the west coast, whereas Redang is a small island on the east coast, so it is not a fair comparison.

On the east coast November to March is the monsoon season. Most accomodation on Redang will be closed and only re-open on 1st March.

Yes but compared to Phuket, nightlife is nothing on Redang.

Since you are from Kuala Lumpur, I'm sure you know that it is the monsoon season in the east coast.
