Koh Samui, Thailand daily weather update; 20th August, 2012

Today's weather;

Koh Samui is having a tiny bit of overcast but the sun is also out and about and warming up. Current temp at 7am is 27C.

Diving conditions are excellent at the moment, at Sail Rock there's around 20 to 30 meters visibility and bull sharks and whales harks are being sighted on a very regular base!

On Gili Air in Indonesia life is getting back to normal, the Ramadan has finished and the big party that goes along with, Idul Fitri, is also done and dusted, I hope to be able to put up some pictures, if I can find the time.

The weather is excellent, blue skies and plenty of sunshine although it's not as warm as Samui during the mornings and evenings. Current temp is 27C

Getting ready for a day on the ocean on Gili Air, the engine will be put on a boat, in front is the gasoline

Yesterday saw a nice and warm day around Samui although there was some rain at various parts of the island. Max temp reached 33.3C

The forecast shows an increase in wind come Thursday and strong wind bursts will continue for the rest of the week, sometimes accompanied by some heavy tropical showers, short but strong showers!

Hi Caner,

Usually early September carries over the nice August weather, so you should be very fine and swimming should be no problem at all, maybe you might want to try out diving as well? Let me know if you're interested.

For more information on September weather, please have a look at my archives, half way down the page on my Samui info and weather blog, right hand side, they go back a few years. Open a month that you’re interested in and check one of the last posts of each month, starting with ‘Goodbye to…………’ this post will tell you the weather conditions for that month.
You can also check each individual post for that month if you wish to.

Hope this helps.

Thank you for your helps. We have already looked to your comments on previous years and made our reservation in January accordingly.
We do not have any experience in diving but we can try.

Do you offer somewhere there?

We love to see you in Koh Samui.

Hi Caner,

Thanks for checking out previous posts, it's a useful tool!

On Koh Samui I work together with a dive center, so please get in touch if you would like to try diving and I can arrange this for you.
