Today's weather;

An almost perfect blue sky rules over Samui with a current temp of 25.5C at 7am.

Yesterday saw once again a nice day with plenty of sunshine. max temp reached 29.8C.

Here's an interesting article on the new coalition that forms the current Democrat lead Government in Thailand; When the beauty of democracy is not so beautiful.

Firstly i would like to thank you for your blog as it is very informative. We are coming to Koh samui from Dubai ( a group of 8 people) from the 29th of December till the 3rd of January and staying at chaweng beach. In your blog you have mentioned that pretty much everyday of december it has been blue skies.
1) However i would like to know if it is raining at all there?
2) Also how do you think the weather would be during our trip? (since most websites are giving it a 60% chance of thunderstorms)

We just want to be prepared for the worst.

Hope to hear from you soon!

Best regards,

Hi Faiz,

Thanks for your mail and for visiting my blog!

Good to see that you're coming over and I hope it's going to be an excellent stay. So far this December has been excellent and the forecasts are looking good. The way to interprete those predictions is a % game indeed, if it says 60% chance of rain, you may have a sunny day all day long but if it rains, it's most likely just a short period of time and not all day long.
Most likely the weather will be nice during your stay, although I can't give a 100% guarantee on that (I wish I could !) but it looks like it's going to be nice, just like previous years.
