Phuket weather reviews

Lyudmila, May 2023
The month of May in Thailand is off-season, so our holiday in Phuket cost us relatively little. The weather was clear, 26°C - 30°C, only towards the end of our trip it began to rain. This needs to be taken into account depending on your luck. The sea was warm 30°C, but with big waves and turbidity, you can’t buy it. We constantly went to Layan Beach, where the sea was calm. We rented a bike, it’s not very expensive, but we explored the entire island and felt the spirit of freedom.
