Koh Samui, Thailand daily weather update; 5th October, 2016
On Koh Samui the sky is showing plenty of blue spots between the clouds and it could become another nice and warm day, maybe with short shower in the afternoon. Current temp at 7am is 28C
At Kata on Phuket we just had a first morning shower but there are also at times or occasionally sun bursts with small blue pockets in the sky. Current temp at 7am is 25.9C
The current PADI IDC on Phuket has reached the last day although we still have various other training programs to complete, before this Saturday the PADI IE starts here on Phuket.
Last month I posted a picture of a shop in Nathon that was selling school supplies. That used to be for a long time one of the few shops on the island selling such supplies, for various schools around the island. Now there are more shops offering a similar service and they have taken over the former leading role of the Nathon shop, like the shop pictures above in Maenam. This shop offers uniforms and school supplies for various schools around the island, but mainly schools located in the Northern part of the island. Since many years we are regular customers for our children in this shop.
Yesterday saw a very nice and sunny day around Koh Samui with a little bit of breeze and a max temp of 33C
Yesterday many shops and houses in Kata on Phuket, had put small tables on the road with offerings to the spirits and Gods and on it as part of the vegetarian festival. There was no procession in or around Kata but many people were participating in these offerings and in vegetarian festival tradition, everybody was wearing white clothes. If possible, I will try to make it tomorrow to Phuket town for a procession, apparently Friday has the biggest procession of all days and I hope I can get some good pictures. First I need to buy some white clothes today.
The forecast for Koh Samui covering the next ten days hasn't changed a lot, mostly partially cloudy skies with enough sunshine and a breeze, combined with occasionally a tropical shower. Fairly typical October weather and the start of this month was very good, with plenty of sun hours being clocked already.
