Weather Averages for Phuket in November
Averages for Phuket in November
Located in the Andaman Sea off the southwest coast of mainland Thailand, Phuket offers visitors a glimpse into the rich Thai culture and history.
November is a month many locals and visitors look forward to; the summer rains finally begin to ease off and temperatures start to rise. Although rain is still expected during November, at 175.7mm on average, it is a lot less than the previous months. Temperatures range from 23 to 31 degrees celsius.
To mark the end of Phuket’s rainy season, why not hit the green? The Red Mountain Golf Course is thought to be one of the most exciting courses in Asia. Located amidst an abandoned tin mine, many aspects of the site’s history have been incorporated into the course. There’s a shop on-site to pick up some memorabilia and souvenirs, as well as a restaurant to stop for a spot of lunch.
The Patong Carnival is held annually in November. Voted the number 1 free funfair in Thailand by the Phuket Gazette, this event sees 3 whole days of colourful street parades, volleyball and football tournaments on the beach, a mini marathon race and watersports competitions. The carnival, also known as the ‘Phuket Travel Fair’, celebrates the start of the tourist season in Thailand. There’s no need to pick a restaurant for the evening meal as the beach is packed with stands selling freshly cooked local delicacies.
