Christmas and New Year in Phuket are the perfect times to come and visit this beautiful island. Both of the months of December and January fall right in the middle of Phuket’s High Season – that means that the weather is perfectly warm and the humidity levels aren’t uncomfortable. If we compare this to the weather in Europe where it is undoubtedly going to be cold, rainy and windy then there’s no more perfect a reason to come to Phuket during this time of year! The prices may be a little higher but the great weather is pretty much a guarantee.
Phuket is the perfect location to come and have a peaceful, relaxing and warm Christmas and New Year. Imagine relaxing on the beach or in an idyllic jungle retreat before enjoying a Christmas dinner which has been cooked for you. Sounds too good to be true doesn’t it?! Not on Phuket it isn’t – you can get all of those things and more on the island.
You can enjoy doing a spot of Christmas shopping in one of the classy malls on the island – you could pick up some great branded bargains or really splash out on someone special.
As you may know, Thailand is a predominantly Buddhist country. That, however, doesn’t mean they don’t partake in Christmas celebrations (in a commercial sense at least). If you visit Phuket for Christmas, then you’ll still be able to see wonderful decorations and lights in much the same way you would with a western Christmas. Don’t worry, you’ll also be able to enjoy a Christmas dinner with turkey and all of the trimmings courtesy of one of the many five-star hotels!
If you fancy a bit of a change from the traditional Christmas dinner, then you’re perfectly situated to enjoy something a little different. Why not try a BBQ on the beach for Christmas instead!
You could rent a villa with a pool and relax on a sun lounger while you listen to Christmas songs, or stay in a condo in one of the towns and head out to one of the many luxury restaurants for your Christmas meal. Whatever you decide to do, Christmas on Phuket will be a magical experience.
With Christmas celebrations over there’s also plenty to look forward to during New Year on Phuket. The New Year’s Eve celebrations on Phuket are probably some of the most impressive the island offers on a yearly basis. The whole area comes alive and you are assured to be able to find a great party to get involved in.
If you like your parties wild, then it is recommended you head down to Patong beach. On New Year’s Eve this is the home of Phuket’s biggest free party, with great music and hundreds of like-minded people all there to let their hair down and have a great time.
There are international DJs, huge beach parties, BBQs and incredible fireworks displays – you’d be hard pushed not to find something fun that you’ll love to see the New Year in with. Come and visit us now!
