A rainy day yesterday on Koh Samui, a real monsoon, rainy day season day with lots of rain all over the island
Yesterday was a typical monsoon day with plenty of rain and some thunderstorms thrown in for good measure as well, at various times all around the island. Max temp reached 30C
The On On Hotel in Old Phuket town on Phuket, which became famous during the filming of the movie 'The Beach' back in 1998, when Leanordo Dicaprio stayed here in room 204. I stayed on Koh Phi Phi back in those days, completing my PADI Divemaster course and occasionally we saw the film crews and the like go over to Maya Beach near Koh Phi Phi where they were filming parts of the movie.
Back to Old Phuket Town though, a very interesting part of Phuket and well worth a visit just to stroll around, enjoy good local food and take some great pictures of Old Phuket Town's Sino-Portuguese buildings on both sides of the street.
The forecast for the next seven days hasn't changed that much, cloudy to partially cloudy each day with likely some showers and come next Wednesday the wind should pick up with steady rain starting on next Tuesday. It looks like the monsoon or rainy season is about to start to knock on Koh Samui's door.
