Phuket in April – Weather, Top 3 Attractions, Things to Carry and Famous Festivals

Phuket offers you everything from romance, attractiveness, adventure, tourist attractions, and some of the best food you’ll ever taste! Phuket can be your dream vacation spot. The island’s popularity can be attributed to its magnificent sugary white sand, tree-fringed beaches, and incredible crystal-clear green seas of the Andaman Sea. We’ve compiled the top 3 attractions that you can visit in Phuket in April, weather, things to carry and popular festivals in Phuket. 

Weather in Phuket in April

Due to the tropical monsoon climate of the island, it is hot and humid all year round. Phuket in April has the highest temperatures of the year. The average temperature is 29.5 degrees Celsius, the maximum temperature is 33 degrees Celsius, and the humidity is 71%, so it just feels hot. But it’s all hot and not scorching, as the wind makes little rain from the Indian Ocean.

The average rainfall is about 162.6 mm and is recorded on up to 50% of the month, usually in the afternoons and evenings. The seawater will be calm, with an average temperature of 30 degrees Celsius. There won’t be any unusual and gentle breeze that blows from the west. The tropical climate of Phuket is in extreme contrast to the winter temperatures of Europe and the United Kingdom, so most tourists like to visit the white sand islands during this time.

Places to Visit in Phuket in April

1. Karon Viewpoint

Just south of Katanoi Beach, this astonishing hill offers stunning views of Phuket’s three most beautiful beaches, Katanoi, Katayai and Karon Beach. From the observatory, you can look north to one of the island’s most famous views. There are a few things that make this island so beautiful, such as emerald green hills, blue waters and white waves. You can drive southwest along the dead-end in front of Katanoi Beach to reach the point of view towards the southern tip of the island.

2. Phuket Trickeye Museum

The Phuket Trick Eye Museum is a great option, especially if you are looking for a place to visit indoors on a hot day. You can even add crazy vacation photos and share them with your friends and family at home. 

In this 3D interactive art gallery, you will appear to be part of over 95 Trompe-l’oeil style paintings created by wise Korean artists. Jump on a tightrope, touch an ET, climb a wall with Spider-Man, or take part in a famous masterpiece. So, this place is a great place to get together with the whole family.

3. Kata Beach

Kata Beach, bordered by sand and palm trees, is a beautiful vast bay surrounded by lush hills on both ends. Still a tourist spot, but quieter than Patong Beach, where there are few hawkers. A small island offshore,  the beach itself is wide, with soft white sands and decent snorkelling spots on either side.

If you’re hungry, you can have a papaya shake or a light meal at the beachfront stalls. Large restaurants are within walking distance. At the southern end of the beach, there is Boathouse Phuket, a luxury boutique hotel, and one of the few resorts on the beach. If you want a quieter coastline, head south to the adjacent Kata Noi Beach.

Famous Festivals in Phuket in April

1. Phuket Bike Week

Asia’s largest motorcycle event takes place every year in mid-April. Six-day activities typically feature major bike shows, the “Ride for Peace” bike parade, custom bike and tattoo contests, live music and entertainment, Miss Phuket Bike Week contests, motorcycle accessories and apparel stores sold by domestic and overseas vendors.

2. Songkrang

Thai New Year is a three-day holiday, but celebrations often last for a week. Most office buildings, banks, and many family-owned shops and restaurants will be completely closed during Songkran, but major shopping malls will normally remain open. You’ll see young people roaming the streets with high-pressure water guns and standing by the side of the road with buckets and hoses ready to soak passers-by. Tourists are a common target. If you go on an adventure during this time, be prepared to protect your phone, wallet, etc. Water guns are sold everywhere and tourists of all ages are encouraged to participate.
