Weather in Bangkok & Phuket in September

Jump to last reply

We are a family of four looking at visiting Phuket for 7 nights in the 2nd week of September 2013 (we have been to Bangkok/Phuket before but in April) and I am concerned that from reading previous reviews that this would not be best time to go due to it being the rainy/monsoon season.

Looking at staying at the Merlin Beach Resort (stayed here last time) or maybe the Patong Merlin Resort to be closer to shopping, restaurents, beach etc ,although the reports vary quite considerably in regards to service, rooms and amenities.

Basically as with the last trip looking at a lot of shopping (which we will also do in Bangkok) with some relaxation around the pool.

Would appreciate feedback on
1. should we put our trip off due to the rain/monsoon season.
2, if you stayed at the Patong Merlin resort how you found it or any other recommendations of resorts in the same area.
Thanks
