Weather in Phuket in March

It is hot in March in Phuket. The average daytime temperature is 32°C (90°F). The average temperature at night is warm too at 26°C (79°F).

What to Wear in March

Shorts, T-shirts, sunglasses, and sun hats are recommended if you are traveling to Phuket in March. A long sleeve shirt and light trousers are usually enough for warmth, even on Phuket's coolest of March evenings (plus they could help as sun protection if you don't keep protected with suncream). The sun shines long and hot in March.

You will probably not need a light raincoat or umbrella, even at the end of March, as the rain is still light then.

Tips for Visiting Phuket in March

As the last month of the dry season in Phuket, March is still one of the better months to visit Phuket. Although March is less crowded than January or February, there are still many tourists in Phuket and Thailand. So, be prepared for some long waiting times at the main tourist attractions.

With "hot season" temperatures, you will feel even hotter in crowded places. It is recommended to bring something to make you feel cool and comfortable if you are visiting attractions in Phuket, such as iced drinks, fans, and so on.
