Phuket Weather in April

What is the weather like in Phuket in April

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.

Things to Do in Phuket in April

Songkran Festival

Coming to Phuket during April? Then you’re in for a big surprise if you’re here from April 13 – 15. This is the time of the Thai celebration of New Year, Songkran – an event that marks the beginning of the solar calendar (it translates as ‘the passing of’). 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.

Traditionally speaking, Songkran tradition was the time of year when the rice harvest was in and farmers had to wait for the rains to begin in order to plant their rice. This would be the driest point of each year so it would seem sort of illogical to waste water by pouring it over elders’ hands but amazingly, gradually over the years Songkran has developed into an orgy of water throwing using buckets and water guns.

Phuket Gay Pride & Festival

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.

Phuket Bike Week 2016

Once you hear the roar of packs of big bikes rumbling around the hills and highways of Phuket Island, you’ll know that Phuket Bike Week is coming. This annual event is always set in the month of April and is usually organized to coincide with Songkran, Thailand’s biggest festival.

It has a number of concurrent fun events to entertain bikers, their friends, families, and onlookers including motorbike and custom bike exhibitions, Miss Phuket Bike Week competition, a beach party, concerts and a ride for peace, just to name a few.

Lately, the bike week has been promoting the theme ‘ASEAN Ride Together’ to show the spirit of unity among Asian riders as many participants come from Malaysia, Singapore and neighbouring countries.
