What are the best months to travel to Phuket? We will be traveling with a baby so also need any tips that could help. Budget typically is $100/night hotel and food preference is vegetarian food.
Try sometime around September & October. The rates are around that at pretty great hotels like Ayara Hilltops Boutique Resort. But I suggest you look around because there are other great hotels too.
Mentioned in this answer:
starting in mid November is the tourist season through winter however if you go just before (beginning of Nov) you should be in the prime time for going (just past monsoon season and just before tourist season).
Everywhere has vegetarian there so you should be good to go... Just get a cab from the airport don't take a shuttle van as they will have a mandatory stop at a tourist house where they will try and force you to buy tours.
