Welcome to the original Koh Samui info and weather blog with lots of information on things to do and see around tropical island destination Koh Samui in Thailand including weekly weather updates, brought to you by long term resident Camille Lemmens since February 2007.
It's cloudy over Koh Samui this morning with at some parts of the island the sun peeking through at some holes in the clouds and other parts having a bit of rain. During the late afternoon the sun may break through all around the island. Current temp at 7am is 27C
Here on Phuket where I currently am, the July 2016 Phuket PADI IDC started yesterday successfully and this monring we have a slightly less clouded sky compared to yesterday, still heavy cloud layers though but with occasionally a few blue spots in it. Current temp at 7am is 27.5C
The 'Bot' at Wat Plai Laem or Wat Suwannaram, the most important building at a temple, the Bot at Wat PLai Laem has beautiful paintings inside, depicting Buddha's life
Yesterday saw another warm day but there was also rain and at some parts there was also some thunderstorm with lightning. Max temp reached 32C nonetheless.
Sunset over Kata on Phuket, as seen yesterday from my room. A dramatic sunset after a very cloudy day over Phuket
The forecast has changed and it's not looking that good now for the enxt ten days, the period with strong wind, even storm, has extended now and starts this Friday and goes on all the way up to next Wednesday. Strong wind, almost storm like at times with plenty of rain after the weekend and once the wind has gone, the clouds and rain may stick around. Not a great way to end the month and start a new one.
