Finding Flights to Phuket

Being Thailand's largest island, Phuket is a wonderful destination for snorkelling and diving, shopping, and nightlife. This tropical island offers warm weather, beautiful beaches, and a wealth of things to see and do. Planning a trip is easy when you use ebookers to research flights to Phuket, accommodation, and local attractions.

Phuket International Airport

Travellers will arrive at Phuket International Airport, located about 20 miles from downtown Phuket Town. Dozens of airlines, including Air China, Thai AirAsia, and Virgin Australia, offer international and domestic flights into and out of Phuket. The airport serves nearly three million passengers each year and offers a restaurant, a duty-free shop, and a currency exchange for passengers.

Transportation from the Airport

Upon your arrival, you have a range of choices to get to your destination. Limousines and taxis are available outside the terminals. Travel to Phuket Town takes about 30 minutes, and you can expect to pay approximately 400 baht for taxi fare. Frugal travellers might wish to take the bus instead. Tickets cost 70 baht and can be purchased on the ground floor of the terminal. If you wish to have your own transportation during your stay in Phuket, consider renting a car from Avis, Alamo, National, or Hertz. Shared minibus service is available for 100 baht for those who want to save on the cost of a taxi but enjoy a more comfortable ride than the bus. Some hotels offer shuttle service for their guests.

Weather in Phuket

Phuket experiences a tropical monsoon climate, and its location near the equator keeps temperatures steady throughout the year. The wet season extends from April through November, with around 20 rainy days each month. The drier months of December through March may be the best time for travellers to visit, since temperatures remain warm but rainfall drops off significantly. Average daily highs year-round are about 32°C, and average lows rarely drop below around 24°C, so lightweight clothing is recommended and visitors at any time of year should be sure to bring adequate rain gear for their outdoor adventures.

Things to Do in Phuket

This southern Thailand island is known the world over for its beaches. Diving, snorkelling, and sailing are all popular activities for visitors and locals alike, and the temperate weather allows for swimming and sunbathing year-round.

For nightlife, head to Patong in western Phuket. On Bangla Road, you will find restaurants, bars, shopping, and local entertainment to suit any taste. In addition, Patong Beach transforms into a street bazaar every evening, where vendors sell clothing, jewellery, artwork, accessories, and more.

For a quieter day, take a trip to Phuket's interior. The Phuket Cultural Centre and the Phuket Zoo are both located in Phuket Town, which also offers a wide range of shopping and dining options. Chinatown and Old Phuket feature historical Chinese-influenced architecture, and Ko Sire is home to the island's largest population of Sea Gypsies, who offer friendly smiles and great prices on goods.

Book Your Trip

Phuket When to Go

While Phuket has tropical weather—and plenty of visitors—year-round, it officially has three distinct tourism seasons. The high season is November to February, when temperatures are the coolest of the year, though it’s still pretty warm with temps in high 80s and low 90s. The beach and ocean conditions are at their calmest, and rainfall is at the lowest levels of the year. Beaches and hotels throughout the island are packed with visitors, and accommodation prices will be at their highest.

From May to September, Phuket is buffeted by monsoon rains that can flood the streets, stir up offshore visibility, and make the western beaches unsafe for swimming. However, the rains can help drop the hot summer temperatures slightly, and visitors can find decent discounts on accommodations and activities.

The shoulder season months are April and May and October. The spring shoulder season can bring price reductions in hotels, and the weather is usually dry, although hot. October is the tail end of the rainy season, but it can be a good time for visitors looking to beat the incoming high season crowds.

October is also when Phuket locals celebrate Vegetarian Festival, an event notable not just for the types of food eaten but by the ceremonies that accompany it. These celebrations are marked by apparently pain-impervious adepts who pierce their tongues and cheeks with spikes and swords while parading through the streets in trance-like states.
