Koh Samui, Thailand daily weather update; 9th October, 2016
It's cloudy on Koh Samui today with a very strong wind blowing but it is still dry and should stay dry for the remainder of the day. Very likely it will also stay cloudy and we have a current temp at 11.40am of 31C
It's a late update today because first I participated in the 12th Turtle Fun Run at the Phuket gateway at 6.15am and after the race I had to rush back to my room, take a shower and go to Kata Beach on Phuket so I could witness the results of my current PADI IDC candidates during the last bit of their PADI IE, the Open Water dive. All is good now though, all passed the exams and I'm ready to do the daily weather update.
At Kata on Phuket it was dry all morning and actually a tiny little bit sunny at times, but we just had a good shower. This morning on the way to the 13th Turtle Fun Run at Phuket Gateway we had a few very hard showers and during the run we had rain as well. In other words, it's a wet day again on Phuket! Current temp at 12am is 27.5C
The best super mart! 07 Express in Chaweng! Amazing copy cat ideas for naming this shop, although I've seen more blatant than this, for this one off super mart on Koh Samui in the busy down town section of Chaweng!
Yesterday saw a nice and sunny day around Koh Samui, with a few clouds in the sky and a max temp of 32C and a fair bit of wind.
Part of the crowd and the participants in the procession during the Vegetarian Festival in Phuket Town on Phuket this week. Tonight is the last day of the festival and many people will start eating meat again after having followed a vegetarian diet for the last nine days. Tonight is also the busiest and absolutely craziest night of the festival, if you're on Phuket and interested to witness this, be at Saphan Hin in Phuket Town at 9pm and follow the crowd. Fire crackers will be all over the place and smoke will get in your eyes! It will be mad, it will be amazing and it will be well worth a visit!
The forecast for the next ten days predicts hard wind until Wednesday with an occasional shower and come next weekend the clouds may break up again and the sun should be out and about again.
The start of the 12th Turtle Fun Run at Phuket Gateway, where some 2700 people participated in various distances, ranging from 10.2km, 5km and a fun run of 2km, despite the rainy weather conditions this morning
