Phuket for Kids: May's monsoon madness

PHUKET: Statistically, and I have checked this, May can be one of the wettest and most humid months of the year on Phuket. Everyone is looking to the sky, and when the rains do not come, tempers become short and children’s behavior can get a little crazy as the weather gets to everyone.

But don’t let the heat get your family down as there are many perks to being on Phuket in the month of May, and it is certainly a great time to visit.

The high season crowds begin to disappear creating a more relaxed atmosphere at the beach. Many top hotels bring back the very extravagant but affordable Sunday brunches. So sit by a pool and take advantage of the feast.

This is a great time for a mini-break as hotels offer very affordable deals and packages. There is some cloud cover which means the sun’s intensity is somewhat diminished.

You can watch spectacularly brilliant thunder storms. Even if it rains, the rain generally does not last all day! And the winds begin to pick up – so get down to the beach and fly that kite.

So don’t sit at home feeling crotchety and testy from the heat. Lash out on a weekend away or day out at the pool or beach with the kids. Alternatively, you could visit Bann Teelanka.

If you have driven along the Bypass road recently you may have looked twice and thought your eyes were deceiving you. No, this is not an optical illusion but Bann Teelanka, also known as the Upside Down House. This phantasm is sure to keep children busy all day long.

Care has been taken to ensure this house has been kitted out with attention to detail that really will spin your head and turn you on your heels. But the house is only one part of this attraction. The garden maze has been designed by award-winning Adrian Fisher Designs from the UK.

When you do find your way out of the maze, meet for a de-brief at the café. This attraction is really a great treat for the kids and a wonderful day out on Phuket for the family.
