Weather in Phuket in October

It is warm in October in Phuket. The temperature ranges from 24°C(75°F) to 31°C (88°F) on average. The average temperature cools slightly towards the end of October, to 27°C (80°F). October sees the end of the monsoon season, but there are still heavy downpours with the average rainfall reaching 320 mm (or more in some parts of Phuket). By the end of October, the rain will start to lessen.

What to Wear in October

Shorts, skirts, T-shirts, and light trousers are commonly worn during the day in October. A long-sleeved top or a light jacket may be needed at night as the temperature drops.

It is recommended to prepare a light waterproof, an umbrella, and rubber boots or sandals (or a change of clothes) to prevent getting uncomfortably wet, because there is lots of rain in October.

Tips for Visiting Phuket in October

With the rains starting to lessen in October, more and more tourists from Thailand and abroad arrive in Phuket, especially at the end of the month.

If you are visiting Phuket in the earlier part of this month, prepare for hot, humid, and rainy days. Top-rated attractions are not crowded this time. It is easy to enter most attractions without waiting too long. Book a tour with us to start your trip to Phuket now.
