Koh Samui, Thailand weekly weather update;18th March 2019 – 24th March 2019

Koh Samui, Thailand weekly weather update;18th March 2019 – 24th March 2019

Sunday morning and time for the Koh Samui, Thailand weekly weather update;18th March 2019 – 24th March 2019. The long run has to wait until the end of the day, since I started teaching a PADI IDC today. You can find me in Khao Lak on Thailand's West coast.

It's partially cloudy today with a current temperature of 32C at 11am. It's going to get warmer, or hotter today! It feels already a lot warmer! 

Here in Khao Lak it's very similar, 32C at 11am under a partially cloudy sky.

The Namuang waterfall. Always worth a visit, although now it hasn't rained for six weeks. The water cascading down is not a lot at the moment. It's great to swim in the pond though. 

Lo and behold, last week we actually had some rain! Monday saw a cloudy and wet day. What a relief it was. The fun didn't last too long though and the rest of the week was a steamer again.
Maximum temperatures reached 35C and the lowest temperature measured last week was 24C. That must have been very early in the day.

Back in Khao Lak and that means a picture of the current state of the Rua 817. A wall is being build around the stranded boat. The tsunami memorial is still a very popular location in Khao Lak.

Next week should see some partially cloudy skies. There is a light chance of an occasional, tropical shower as well. Temperatures are rising gradually and we're closing in on April, the hottest month of the year.
Enjoy your time on the island and do go out and about. Explore, enjoy and see what Koh Samui has to offer.

Please do 'like' my Koh Samui blog Facebook page and enjoy the beaches around the island or in front of your hotel or resort 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. 

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. 

You may also opt for a very special dinner experience at The Thai Experience. Behind closed doors, reservation only and a very enjoyable and well worthwhile way of spending an evening on Samui. Authentic Thai food and a great atmosphere. Can highly recommend this experience.

Koh Samui, Thailand weekly weather update;11th March 2019 – 17th March 2019


Sunday morning with another long slow distance run done and dusted and time for the Koh Samui, Thailand weekly weather update;11th March 2019 – 17th March 2019.

We're entering now the seventh week without rain. It's been hot again. Today will be no different, we have a nice and blue sky shaping up. Current temperature at 9am is 29C but it already feels much warmer.

Last week has been warm again. Maximum temperatures reached 34C and minimums were around 25C. 
Due to the general heat, I typically run very early, sometimes even in the dark, to beat the heat. I can feel the average temperature rising each week. My running watch also notes the slow but steady temperature increase. Week after week.

Temple party in Bophud. No temple party in Thailand will be complete without lots of food. Loads of vendors are selling their respective meals on this temple party.

Not much change in the forecast for next week. Very unlikely to see some rain and mainly blue skies with some occasional partially cloudy days. The temperatures will keep rising, slowly but steadily. Enjoy your stay on the island and go out and about. Be active and have a look around what Koh Samui has to offer. Plenty of hidden gems in the forms of temples, small beaches and plenty of obvious and more touristy attractions and sights.

Koh Samui, Thailand weekly weather update; 25th February 2019 – 3rd March 2019


A day late but here we are with the Koh Samui, Thailand weekly weather update; 25th February 2019 – 3rd March 2019. The delay is due to a very busy Sunday yesterday on the mainland. It started out with a very early rise, so I could be at the start line for a half marathon in Surat Thani at 5am.
After that it was family time, we visited a nice market in Surat and Central Plaza and before you know it, it is time to get back to the ferry.

In case you wonder, the half marathon went well, I ended up as third in my age group. That was a good result, running 21km in 1 hour and 41 minutes.

Let's move to last week's weather though. It was splendid. The end of February was as good as the start of March. Sunny skies, sometimes with a few clouds and no rain. The temperatures are still very agreeable, although the afternoons slowly start to become warm.

Today, Monday morning 4th March, a thin cloud layer is hanging over Samui. The sun is working hard to break through though and the current temperature at noon is 30C but it feels a lot warmer already.

Last week temperatures ranged between 31C and 27C. Although these are the values that have been officially measured, most days it felt a lot warmer.

The forecast for next week is sunny with mostly blue skies, an occasional cloud and no rain. Hard work on the beach is called for!

Welcome to March 2019

Welcome to March 2019


Second day of this month and here we are with a warm Welcome to March 2019. 

March is usually a good month to visit Koh Samui and it's neighboring islands. The nice and kind weather of February typically continues. Plenty of sunshine, blue skies or partially clouded skies should be ours during a typical March on Samui. The best part is that there's still hardly any rain during a March around the Samui archipelago.
We need to go back to 2011 before we saw a rainy March, a rather untypical occurrence.

We just arrived in Surat Thani for the weekend, where I will participate in a half marathon event tomorrow morning.

Welcome to March 2019

Welcome to March 2019; The Meh Guan Ihm statue at Wat Plai Laem. Always a great temple to visit and I consider myself lucky to be living around the corner of this temple.

Enjoy this March on and around Koh Samui. Go out and about and have a look at the surprises that Koh Samui has to offer.

Goodbye to February 2019

Goodbye to February 2019

The second month of this year is already coming to an end, hence it's time to say Goodbye to February 2019. And what a February it was. Hardly any rain, lots of sunshine and partially cloudy to blue skies. As good as a February can get around Koh Samui.

This morning saw blue skies with a few scattered clouds and by 11am it's 30C. Don't get fooled though, it feels a lot warmer.

Goodbye to February 2019

Goodbye to February 2019 

Maenam beach near Wat Phra Nha Lan and the Lomprayah ferry pier. Not Koh Samui nicest beach, the sand is rather grainy, but a nice and quiet beach.

February is about the best month to visit our island. The temperatures are nice without being too hot. Especially the last couple of days there has been a fair bit of wind which brings a cool breeze.

Goodbye to February 2019


Goodbye to February 2019 

Bounty beach on Malapascua in the Philippines. The main beach stretch on Malapascua island. Here you can find most restaurants, dive shops and the like.

Most of this month I have spent in the Philippines. Specifically on Malapascua island, teaching a PADI IDC there. Good times were had but it's also good to be back home and enjoy the last bits of this fab month.

Hope you all had a good time on Samui during your stay and I'm looking forward to March coming on! The forecast for the first March week is looking good. Very similar weather were February ended, blue skies to partially clouded skies and no rain in sight.

The forecast for next week is looking good. Monday through Thursday sees a little bit of increase in wind. On the other hand, it should be plenty of sunny skies again. Maybe a tropical shower on Tuesday.
