What to Do on a Rainy Day in Phuket 5 Activities to Explore


Phuket is known for its famous beaches but also its dry and wet season. If you happen to be in Phuket once the heavy downpours start coming, don’t worry. You can still enjoy your stay on the island even without the sand on your toes.

To make sure that no amount of rain can ruin your Phuket vacation, we came up with a list of activities that you can enjoy even when indoors.

  • Enroll in a Thai Cookery Course

    One of the best ways to take home a piece of Phuket with you is to learn how to cook some of the local dishes. Thai dishes are amazing, and the local cuisine is an art. It requires the proper balancing of ingredients and their different flavors. The great thing about this activity is that it is offered across the island. There are also different types for all experience levels, including taster sessions and intensive courses for both children and adults.

    This activity is perfect for those who want to experience Thai culture a little better. More than the experience, you’d also gain knowledge about their dishes and way of cooking.

  • Visit the Phuket Aquarium

    If seeing the ocean is something you want to do while in Phuket, consider visiting the Phuket Aquarium instead. It is one of the main tourist attractions on the island, and it is open even when it is raining. A visit to the aquarium will let you bask in the beauty of Thailand’s tropical sea life. Every sight is a journey that takes you from one habitat to another.

    You will see different coral reefs and mangroves and everything else under Thailand’s deepest sea. Make sure to drop by the underwater tunnel, which is considered the main attraction in the aquarium. It is a tunnel that will allow you to walk “in the sea” while fish swim around you.

  • Go Shopping

    When it comes to shopping, Phuket won’t let you down. Whether you are a fan of vintage items, high street stores, or souvenir shops, you will find the store you want on the island. If you wish to shop in an airconditioned shopping mall, visit Jungceylon Shopping Mall, one of the biggest and best places to shop in Phuket. You will find more than two hundred shopping outlets, a bowling alley, a cinema, restaurants, and even amusement attractions, making your visit complete. If you are looking for one more recommendation with the same facilities, try Central Festival just outside Phuket Town.

  • Have a Nice Massage

    Apart from its famous beaches, Thailand is also known for its Thai massage. If you are in Phuket for a visit, you should not leave without trying their professional spas and treatments. Consider having manicures, pedicures, or a haircut when you visit these spas for a more positive experience. When it’s raining outside, go and treat yourself to some nice me-time.

  • Enjoy Your Privacy

    Nothing feels more cozy and relaxing than staying indoors, watching movies, reading books, listening to music, or watching the rain the whole afternoon. If you’re staying in one of our lovely villas, you’re lucky because you get to enjoy plenty of green space around you.

    We also have indoor pools to make your indoor stay more fun and exciting. You and your company can talk about your experiences in Thailand or plan what else to do once the rain stops.


No matter what weather you face when you visit Phuket, you will still find a way to enjoy what it has in store. Staying inside while raining lets you \explore your creativity and try things that are not often on your list of things to do.
