Koh Samui, Thailand weekly weather update; 17th - 20th February, 2017


Today's weather;

It's a lovely sunny day over Koh Samui with a few clouds and it looks like it will stay like this for the remainder of the day. Current temp at 7am is 26C

Here at Kata on Phuket, where I will be for another two days, it's also nice and sunny with a current temp at 7am of 27C

Yesterday the PADI IE for February 2017 was completed and all of my candidates passed with flying colors. Job well done and congratulations are in place.

I was in Surat Thani yesterday where I participated for second consecutive year in the Surat Thani marathon and came in 12th overall and second in my age category (50-59), well chuffed with that result. I ran 42.17km in 3:43'31 or a 5'18 pace.

Koh Samui, Thailand weekly weather update; 17th - 20th February, 2017

Koh Samui, Thailand weekly weather update; 17th - 20th February, 2017; The Natural Museum in Wat Lamai, well worth a visit, but be careful, in that corner of the temple there's a brownish colored dog that likes to bite visitors. You have been warned. 

Last week Koh Samui had good weather, since 16th February. Only one evening saw a light shower and all other days were sun and glorious. It's good again to be on Koh Samui and enjoy the beaches and all the things that Koh Samui has to offer. Max temps ranged from 30C to 32C with cool morning temps of around 25 to 27C

Koh Samui, Thailand weekly weather update; 17th - 20th February, 2017

Koh Samui, Thailand weekly weather update; 17th - 20th February, 2017; Kata on Phuket, next to PADI CDC Center 'Dive Asia' and the Kata Big Rock scuba training pool, the steep hills that are on the Northern side of Patak road, leading through the mountains. Great for hill running and training

The forecast for the next seven is looking good, partially clouded skies all week long with an occasional shower. Great weather to enjoy Koh Samui.

Koh Samui, Thailand weekly weather update; 17th - 20th February, 2017

Koh Samui, Thailand weekly weather update; 17th - 20th February, 2017: Me during the Surat Thani marathon, within the last 8km of the race, at the new bridge, linking Surat Thani and the bypass road to the Surat Thani airport.

As already mentioned, great weather conditions for the next seven days around Koh Samui to enjoy the beach and get some well deserved rest and a break. If you're done resting or need something else to do, there's plenty of things on offer on and around Koh Samui, you can go snorkeling or diving or take a dive course and with a bit of luck you may spot one of the whale sharks visiting currently the dive sites, especially Sail Rock.
You can also enjoy some of the trips I recommend, like a half day gourmet lunch and snorkeling trip at the Southern part of Koh Samui or a photography trip where you get to see the most photo genetic spots on the island or go for a drinks tasting tour if you like a tipple or two, 
Contact me for more detailed information on any of the options mentioned.

Koh Samui, Thailand daily weather update; 15th February, 2017


Today's weather;

A very nice and blue sky is shaping up over Koh Samui this early in the morning and it should stay like this all day long. The few isolated clouds that are currently in the sky will most likely be evaporated by the sun once it starts to heat up. Current temp at 7am is 26C

It's an ideal day to hang out and relax at the beach, go on a dive trip or of you're not certified as a diver, sign up for a Discover Scuba Diving trip or the PADI open water diver course and enjoy the current great diving conditions or get a bit more active on the island itself and decide to explore and enjoy and see the island. There are various tours on offer and I can help you book  lovely half day gourmet lunch and snorkel trip in the South of the island or join a photography tour during which you will visit the most photogenic locations around the island or if you like a drink or two, join the drinks tasting tour around the island and learn how to make some cocktails as well.
Please contact me for more information on any of the tours on offer.

At Kata on Phuket we have very similar conditions, possibly with a few more clouds in the sky though. Current temp at 7am is 26.3C

Tomorrow will be the 10th year anniversary of this blog! A few changes to the concept of the blog will be revealed.

There are a few zip line options here and you can order food and drinks. Great view over the jungle and the ocean from here. It's at the very end of Soi 5 in Maenam. A lovely waterfall is nearby as well

Yesterday saw a nice and sunny day but occasionally there was also a fair bit of wind. Max temp reached 32C

Koh Samui, Thailand daily weather update; 15th February, 2017

The forecast is looking really good, sunny skies are ahead of us during the next seven days or possibly also some partially cloudy skies. Not much rain is predicted, maybe a few rain drops during Thursday afternoon or Sunday morning. Enjoy the good weather but be careful with the sun exposure and have some sun lotion within hand reach!

A great opportunity to enjoy the beaches around Koh Samui or get active and join one of the many activities that Koh Samui has to offer. I can help you with booking a dive trip or a dive course, so you can enjoy the current great visibility and abundance of fish at the dive sites or get out and about with one of the following tours; a half day gourmet picnic and snorkel trip in the Southern part of the island, get to see the most photo genetic and scenic parts of the island during a photography tour or try some tinkle at various tasting stations around Koh Samui with the drinks tasting tour.

Great views can be had if you climb up to the platform where the Big Buddha statue is housed.

Koh Samui, Thailand daily weather update; 10th February, 2017


Today's weather;

Yesterday there was no update thanks to Bill Gates. Windows 10 was updating to a new version, but after 15 hours without any movement, and a previous 7 hours of getting a 42% part update, I decided that was enough and re-booted my computer. It was way too late in the afternoon, early evening to post an update. So, thanks but no thanks Bill!

A lovely blue sky is shaping up over Koh Samui and it looks like it's going to be a hot day today! Be prepared and don't get sunburned, it happens faster than you think, especially when you drive a motorbike. The wind is cool but the sun may seriously burn you! Either wear long sleeved shirts or apply sun lotion on a regular base. Enjoy the day though! Current temp at 7am is 24C

Since two days I'm back in Kata on Phuket now and yesterday the February PADI IDC started here, an update is to follow later today. There are great conditions here as well, with mainly sunny skies and warm days. Current temp at 7am at Kata beach is 25C
