Phuket is one of the best beach getaways in Asia that offers mellow weather and warm temperature all year round. The best time to visit the Phuket island is from November to April when the famous Freedom Beach, Banana Beach, Kata Beach, and Kamala Beach are at their best. However, do keep in mind that the rainy season runs from May to October, which is the least crowded time on the island. October is an excellent time to see baby gibbons and celebrations dedicated to the end of Buddist Lent—Wan Ok Phansa. Meanwhile, May is the high season for many tropical fruits, like lychee, mango, longan, and famous durian. It's also time to celebrate the major events in the life of Buddha during Visakha Bucha Day.
