What's the weather like in September?

One question that all of us Phuket bloggers and travel websites face regularly is ............................

 'What's the weather like in the rainy season? 

It's an impossible question to answer because not every year is the same and it's more a question of luck or something to be decided by the gods! We've had quite a few lucky days this year!

All said the rainy season can sometimes be better than the 'High Season' or what we could call the 'Sunny Season'. Certainly it makes sense to come to Phuket during the rainy season when things are less busy, beaches are empty and prices of hotels drop by up to 50%, but I hear you asking me

'What about the rain?' 

Take a look at my Rawai Boat Cam page to see photos from different months of the year to get some answers.

2015 seems to have been a very dry rainy season compared to some I can remember but the thing that most people don't realise is that during the rainy season it doesn't rain all day or every day and you could have monsoon rain in one part of Phuket and hot sun in another. So basically if it's raining try heading to a different part of Phuket and if the waves are large on the west coast head east or take an island trip where you will find a much calmer sea safe for swimming.

While you're sitting in the hotel watching the rain others could be having fun on the beach!

Of course occasionally we get a tropical storm come through and that means serious weather!

What's the weather like in September? - Who knows!
