Averages for Phuket in February
Often known as the ‘Pearl of the Andaman Sea’, Phuket, Thailand’s largest island, is a hugely popular resort destination with travellers from all over the world. The typical winter months are particularly favoured due to Phuket’s glorious weather.
February is known for being Phuket’s driest month of the year, with around 20.9mm of precipitation on average during the month. Temperatures are warm and range from 23 to 32 degrees celsius. Weather-wise, February is a fantastic time to visit Phuket.
Chinese New Year is a massive event in Thailand, with 60,000 tourists visiting the country during this time. Usually celebrated during February, one of the best events occurs at the Sanam Chai Park in Phuket Town. Chinese acrobats, music, foods and decorations adorn the park for this free party.
Make the most of Phuket’s driest month and try out some outdoor activities during February. Xtrem Adventures offers 69 different treetop activities ranging from zip lines to challenging tightropes and climbing. Based in the Chalong area, these team-building exercises are suitable from 4 years, so make an excellent and unique day out for families.
Enjoy a traditional Thai dinner or, if it’s a Saturday night, an al fresco seafood barbecue, at the Royal Embassy Restaurant. This establishment is attached to the Royal Embassy Resort which encompasses 20 apartments and villas available to book from just £39 per night. Rooms include private balconies or patios and the complex boasts two outdoor swimming pools, a jacuzzi, sauna and full spa services.
Be sure to check out the nearby Kamala Beach, perfect for those who want to enjoy the white sands without the crowds. The small park is worth a look as it houses a monument remembering the 2004 Boxing Day tsunami.
