There’s nothing worse than booking a summer getaway to then only be welcomed by tropical rain all day long. Once monsoon season hits in Phuket, the streets turn into rivers and those long sunny beach days become a distant memory. But don’t fret, we’ve got a whole load of activities to keep you busy and occupied for those rainy days here in Phuket.

Both include cinemas, food courts and all the shops you could ever dream of, so your rainy day will be filled with activities all day long.
Why not use the rainy day to make the most of all the amazing spas Phuket has to offer… you won’t be short on choice. Treat yourself to a whole pamper day with massages, reflexology, nails and hair, and come out feeling like a brand new you!
