Phuket is blessed with magnificent bays and coves, powdery, palm-fringed beaches, countless islands, turn-of-the-century Sino-Portuguese architecture, sincere and hospitable people and superb accommodation and cuisine. Its delightful ambience ensures visitors return for exotic and relaxing holidays.
Phuket’s weather is always warm and humid and unlike Pattaya, it has two distinct seasons – dry and wet. The dry season runs from November through to April and wet season begins in May and lasts until October.

Bangkok welcomes more visitors than any other city in the world and it doesn’t take long to realise why. This is a city of contrasts with action at every turn; marvel at the gleaming temples, catch a tuk tuk along the bustling Chinatown or take a longtail boat through floating markets. Food is another Bangkok highlight, from local dishes served at humble street stalls to haute cuisine at romantic rooftop restaurants.
Bangkok’s weather is dominated by a tropical monsoon climate which means there are three main seasons: hot season from March to June, rainy season from July to October and cool season between November and February. As Bangkok holds claim to being the hottest city in the world, expect daytime temperatures to be in excess of 30 degrees centigrade throughout the year (with the possible exception of late December and early January).

Bali is an Indonesian island known for its forested volcanic mountains, iconic rice paddies, beaches and coral reefs. The island is home to religious sites such as cliffside Uluwatu Temple. To the south, the beachside city of Kuta has lively bars, while Seminyak, Sanur and Nusa Dua are popular resort towns. The island is also known for its yoga and meditation retreats.
Best time to visit Bali
This depends mainly on the weather and on high and low season, which does affect the overall price for accommodation. High season is during the months of July and August, during Easter Holidays, and Christmas / New Year (December till 1st week of January).
However best time to come to Bali is April, May, June and September, just before and just after high season. It’s still dry season, it’s slightly less humid, and room prices can be 30-50% cheaper than during high season. Many shops offer sales and promotions, restaurants are less crowded in those mid-season months, and in general Bali is a bit more relaxed. October is not too bad either, still much less rain than November.
