Tips for Visiting Phuket in April

April is the hottest month in Phuket. If you are planning a trip to Phuket in April, be prepared for the hot weather conditions and the start of the rainy season later in the month.

April is the time to experience Thai New Year (Songkran Festival), which is celebrated on April 13th–15th. Phuket is a popular destination for international tourists to celebrate the Songkran Festival. Streets and beaches will be very crowded and noisy as water fights happen there from time to time during Songkran. Hotels rooms and flight tickets are sold out quickly around Songkran. So, book your April trip to Phuket as soon as possible.
