In addition, June and July are also ideal times to conquer the paradise island. Although it is summer now, the weather is not too hot, too great for swimming and experiencing fun and entertainment activities on the sea. Besides, you can travel to Phuket on major festivals of the year such as:

March: Kite Festival
April: Songkran Water Festival is a traditional Thai New Year.
July: Khao Phansa Festival is a big festival of Buddhists.
November: Loy Krathong Lantern Festival and Yi Peng Festival are known as the most romantic festivals in the world.
October to December: Beer Festival
From May to October, Phuket is in the rainy season. Room rates and airfares are cheap, but the weather is not very favorable for discovering attractive destinations in Phuket. If you want to save money when traveling to Phuket, you should book flight tickets and hotel rooms in advance
