WeatherFilter: Help us time our trip! Online resources I've seen haven't been consistent about the weather in Beijing, Hong Kong, Bangkok, and Phuket in late October/early November. Will we be OK?

My wife and I (we're in our mid-20s) are planning a trip to Beijing, Hong Kong, Bangkok, and Phuket later this year. We're considering arriving in Bangkok on October 24th, being in Phuket from Oct 27th-30th, Hong Kong until November 2nd, and then Beijing until November 5th.
I've done all kinds of research, and some sites say that Phuket won't be good this time of year-- it'll be too rainy. They suggest going a few weeks later. Other sites say that it'll be fine. I'm also reading mixed signals about the other cities.
Does anybody have any advice? Does the timing of our trip look good? We'd also considered reversing it to start in Beijing and end in Phuket, but for various reasons it probably makes more sense for us to start in Thailand.
Thanks in advance!
