Koh Samui

Koh Samui

Koh Samui is an island of real beauty and charm located in the Gulf of Thailand. The most popular holiday beaches are Chaweng and Lamai, while the northern sandy beaches of Mae Nam, Bophut, Bang Rak (Big Buddha) and Choeng Mon are certainly more peaceful choices. Samui Island is a rare gem, preserving the idyllic simplicity of a tropical hideaway.

Climate

The best time of year to visit Koh Samui is during the dry season from February to late June. From around March through to October, temperatures regularly reach 35 Celsius. The rainy season is from November to December and temperatures during this time are around 26 Celsius. Despite the odd shower here and there, there’s still plenty of beach weather. From July to October it sometimes rains off and on, but is still pleasant as the sun pokes through and rainbows are often seen. September and October can be nice times to visit as crowds and prices tend to decrease.
