Rainy Season in Phuket

It was only last month that I wrote about the weather in Phuket. It was so incredibly hot here, that I hardly left the home. And if I did had to leave, I made sure I was quickly getting into my air-conditioned car, driving to an air-conditioned location. This went on until mid-May, and I really was waiting for the rain to start falling down.

Now only a couple of weeks down and the rain is here. The weather outside is loads cooler than in the beginning of this month. But I am still sitting inside… The rainy season is here and it has been raining a lot. This has partly to do with the start of the rainy season, but also with cyclone Roanu. Which brings stormy weather and high waves to the Andaman Sea – the sea around Phuket. Like this:

So in the last couple of days, we have witnessed some floodwaters, flash floods, and landslides.

After the heat and now the rain, for once I am looking forward to the weather in Holland. Only a couple of days left until I fly to the lowlands. Let’s hope the weather is a little better there!
