Phuket Weather in April
What is the weather like in Phuket in April0
The weather in Phuket in April brings the highest temperatures of the whole year, making the inevitable soaking you’ll get during the Songkran water festival actually quite a relief! Average temperatures are up to 29.5°C (85.1°F) with highs of 33°C (91°F) and an average humidity of 71% will make it feel even hotter still. It’s no good trying to chill out in the sea because the water, while calm, is at an average temperature of 30°C (86°F). The wind also provides very little respite from the heat, with infrequent and very gentle breezes out of the west. They do, however, bring some rain from the Indian Ocean, with average rainfall rising to 162.6mm being delivered over as many as 15 days of the month, but generally only in the afternoon and evening.

For some, it’s a period of reflection and carrying out of familial shows of respect to elders. But for others (in fact for most people) it’s a perfect excuse to get merry, hit the streets and throw tons of water around at anything that moves out there.

Colourful, eccentric, outrageous and full of fun, Phuket’s annual Gay Festival held in Patong is a riot of well-toned bodies on floats and in parades. This is light years away from Patong’s Gay Scene of yesteryear when things were much more discreet.
The Gay Festival nowadays attracts revelers from the world over and is a week of fun and well-organised activities, parties, competitions, quizzes, parades and over-the-top costumes and characters. Based from Soi Paradise and gay-friendly hotels, the festival certainly leaves its mark on Patong Beach. Read More...0
