One experience you hope that does not happen during any of your vacations is that the warm, sunny weather turns into a cold, stormy one. If that happens, you might only be able to sit in your room, bored out of your mind, while waiting for a change of course in the weather.

Fortunately for you, it doesn’t have to stay that way! If you’re traveling to Phuket for your vacation, even a rainy day can still be extremely productive. How so?

In this article, we will share with you three activities that you can still enjoy even if it rains in Phuket:

1. Hit the museum

If you don’t have anything to do because of the stormy weather outside, then take that time to visit the museum and increase your intellectual knowledge!

While you might be thinking that we’re talking about educational museums, we’re actually talking about something else: Phuket’s Trickeye Museum! It’s a famous and fun attraction, especially if you’re talking with kids. While the cost to enter the venue is a little bit steep, it is quite worth the cash. Just don’t forget to bring your camera to take a few funny pictures to bring back.

2. Enjoy the spa

While it rains outside, why not spend your day indoors getting pampered? That sounds like an excellent way to enjoy your vacation amidst bad weather!

Enjoy your day at the spa has plenty of benefits to offer you. From wonderful, relaxing massages and treatments, you pamper your body down with great health-promoting activities that leave you happier and livelier than before.

Do note that if you want to go to the spa, you don’t necessarily have to book the place. If you’re living in a resort spa, however, you might want to do so, because other people there might be thinking of doing the same thing when it starts drizzling.

3. Go shopping

Take this time to visit Central Phuket, which is a small mall in Phuket. While there, you can do some shopping, purchasing your favorite drinks and eating a great variety of food. If you’re planning to stay for much longer, or if it doesn’t look like the rain is going to let up soon, you can enjoy a movie there as well. If you’ve got some cash to spare, try and book the VIP room complete with a bed, a blanket, and a pillow.


Even if it starts to storm, the bustling life of Phuket never dies. In fact, though you might be stuck somewhere because of the terrible weather outside, you can still take this time to discover other hidden gems on the island that you would’ve otherwise never known before!

That said, when it rains, remember to enjoy the activities we’ve shared with you in this article. Other than that, there are so many more you can do in Phuket as well. From visiting other famous attractions and venues and enjoying plenty of indoor activities, this stunning island always has something to keep you busy, no matter the weather outside.
