Weather Averages for Phuket in June
Averages for Phuket in June
Lying in the Andaman Sea, Phuket, Thailand’s largest island, sees year round warm weather due to its location just north of the equator. Phuket is known for being the nightlife capital of Thailand, with many bars, clubs and luxury beachfront properties appealing to tourists.
June is part of Phuket’s rainy season, with 268.9mm on average falling during the month. Weather-wise, June is a much better time to visit Phuket than in May as rainfall is often restricted to short (but heavy) downpours, with spells of blue sky in between. Temperatures range from 24-31 degrees celsius which, coupled with some cooling breezes, is comfortably warm.
The Fun Fly Paragliding festival comes to Phuket in June. Based at Nai Harn Beach, this annual 3 day event is a real spectacle, with hundred of paragliders in the skies between 8:30 am and 6:00 pm. Be sure to have cameras at the ready, especially as there’s a photo competition to enter. But visitors needn’t just be spectators. Phuket Paragliding offers flights for just £20 during the festival; a full 50% off usual prices.
In the evening, head to Phuket FantaSea. Describing itself as a ‘cultural theme park’, this complex encompasses the Palace of the Elephants Theatre- a 3000 seat venue showing Las Vegas-style theatrical productions, as well as the Carnival Village Shopping Street with 15 shops selling traditional Thai arts and crafts, the Similan Entertainment Centre showcasing the latest arcade games, and two buffet restaurants.
Stay at the Sawasdee Village on Kata Beach for just £53 per night. Rooms have terrace access to the property’s pools and guests can enjoy the on-site Baray Spa, the Al Majlis restaurant and can even take in a Thai cooking class offered by the hotel.
