Weather Averages for Phuket in July
Averages for Phuket in July
Phuket is Thailand’s nightlife hotspot, with bars, clubs and fine dining establishments lining the streets, drawing in huge numbers of tourists each year. The island’s location near to the equator means weather is warm all year round which is another selling point of this resort destination.
July is part of Phuket’s rainy season, and visitors at this time of year can expect short bursts of heavy downpours throughout the month. With around 290.5mm of rain on average, July is bound to be wet, but the temperatures are comfortable at around 24 to 31 degrees celsius, and the cooling breezes make it quite pleasant.
Phuket Race Week takes place in July and more than 50 boats take part in the race off the east coast of the island. It’s great to simply watch this event, but for those interested in taking part or buying tickets to the accompanying activities, there’s plenty of parties during race week with free flowing drinks and caribbean-inspired buffets.
If the rain starts to pour, head over to Phuket’s largest temple, Wat Chalong, located between Chalong and Phuket Town. The architecture is magnificent, which contributes to the large numbers of visitors the temple sees each day. For a quieter time, try to arrive early morning or late afternoon when crowds are slightly reduced.
Stay at the Kantary Bay hotel and apartments located on the quiet seafront, just 10 minutes away from Phuket Town. Standard rooms cost just £29 per night and the hotel has everything a guest could want, including two swimming pools, a fitness centre, four restaurants and even a babysitting service, making it a top choice for families travelling with little ones.
