Phuket gets especially busy from November to February. The high season energy is attractive as night spots fill and markets get more active. Monsoon season begins in May with occasional heavy rains and heat. Wet, hot conditions intensify in September and October, making these less popular times to visit.
Thai New Year, or Songkran, is celebrated in April. Everyone celebrates with water, and Patong is the center of the action. This is a good time to leave your good clothes and expensive cameras somewhere else or they'll get soaked.
