Koh Samui, Thailand daily weather update; 1st February, 2017
It's fairly cloudy over Koh Samui this morning but the sun should start to dissolve the clouds fairly quickly, one it heats up. It should stay dry today and become sunny. Current temp at 7am is 25C
On Koh Lanta the current PADI IDC has already passed the halfway mark and later today we go out on the boat for some open water training dives. The sky is nice and blue and it looks like another warm and sunny day is in the making here. Current temp at 7am is 23C

“A folklore of Samui Island tells the story of an old couple by the name of Ta Kreng (Grandpa Kreng) and Yai Riem (Grandma Riem) who lived with their son in the southern province of Nakhon Si Thammarat. Since their son had come of age, they felt that it was time he got married. “One day they decided to sail to the neighbouring province of Prachuap Khiri Khan to ask for the hand of the daughter of a man named Ta Monglai. During their sea journey, their boat was seized by a storm. The old man and his wife were unable to swim ashore. They died at sea, turning into rocks as proof to the would-be bride's parents of their true intentions. The rocks stand there to this day.”
Yesterday saw a nice and sunny and sometimes partially cloudy day over Koh Samui with a max temp of 31C A great way to say goodbye to January 2017!

The forecast for the next seven day is still looking, possibly partially to fairly cloudy tomorrow and Friday but other than real nice blue skies should be hovering over Koh Samui for all other days. Enjoy, get a tan and don't forget the sun lotion!
