Things to Do in Phuket When It Rains - Beat the Rainy-Day Blues in Phuket

Rain in Phuket interrupting your vacation? Look at the silver lining in the dark clouds. Here is a list of fun activities that you could do on a rainy day to light up all the grey.


Treat Yourself to a Spa Session

If you feel like you are coming down with the rainy-day blues get yourself checked into a spa at one of the Phuket luxury hotels. Phuket offers a range of spas according to your need so for those ladies and gentlemen who appreciate the finer things in life including a bit of self-pampering, this is the ideal way to work out those gloomy moods and sore muscles. Depending upon the hotel or resort that you are staying at you will most probably be able to get into the in-house spa. Most resorts and hotels such as the Anantara Layan Phuket Resort and many others offer spa treatments. Alternatively, explore your spa options outside your lodging.



Jungceylon is an adventure land filled with silly and completely whacked-out activities. From bowling to laser shooting to silly blue facials, you can be assured that this place will give you a serious boost of adrenaline. What's more, if you have kids accompanying you, they are sure to stop complaining about how the rain ruined their playdate; brownie points!!!


Shopping at Central Festival

Shop till you drop and watch a movie lying down on a bed at the Central. Retail therapy works for most of us when the downer hits, so this one is a classic favourite and a guaranteed winner. If you drive or have rented a vehicle, hop in and take off to the world of shopping. Indulge your inner shopaholic; after all, it's a rainy day. Borrowing from your secret cash stash is excused.


An Evening at the Trickeye Museum

Collect a bunch of fun memories and photographs to take home with you after a visit to the Trickeye Museum. It is rumoured to be slightly on the pricey side but is also guaranteed to keep you and any kids you might bring along entertained.


Old Phuket – the Rediscovery

Explore Old Phuket, with an umbrella as your companion of course, and you will have the opportunity to explore quaint streets, street markets and sina Portuguese mansions. You will also have the chance to sample some authentic local food - all that walking on a rainy day is bound to get you hungry.


Phang Nga Bay

Locals say that the bay looks amazing in the sun but even better in the rain. The way to explore these stunning limestone formations is by kayaking. Get a sneak peek into nature's amazing creations which include caves, lagoons, and tiny nooks and crannies that are just mesmerizing.


The Upside Down House ...literally

Do you know about Alice falling down the rabbit hole? Well, you now got the chance to get into one as well with this upside down house. The house is actually inverted and even a tuk-tuk can be seen hanging upside down. Be prepared for a tiny bit of disorientation, but it's totally worth the while.
