Koh Samui, Thailand weekly weather update; 3rd April – 9th April, 2017
The Koh Samui, Thailand weekly weather update; 3rd April – 9th April, 2017 but first things first and that's today's update.
It's nice and sunny around Koh Samui this morning and a warm or rather hot day seems to be in the making. There are just a few isolated clouds in the sky so get that sun lotion out, whether you are on the beach today or on a trip around the island or on a boat for a snorkeling or diving trip! Current temp at 9am is 30C
This morning saw some rain though, around 5am, during my long Sunday morning run (26.6km in two and a half hours) for about half an hour and I enjoyed every minute of it during my run, since it cooled things down really nicely. Very enjoyable!
Don't miss out on on today's big event in Maenam where there will be a bike cross event all morning and into the afternoon.

Last week was as unusual for the start of the month of April as it can get! There was a lot of rain and plenty of flooded area around the island. By all means, not as bad as during the recent December and January floods, but they were very unusual. In all my 18 years now on Koh Samui I've only seen this before, and on a l\much larger scale back then, in 2011.
Since yesterday the sun is back again though and the weather has changed into a much more April like condition!
As a small welcome back celebration back home we had dinner at Kobori in Nathon yesterday and the Japanese food was up to the expected standard as always. Well worth checking out in either Nathon or Maenam.
All week long I was on Koh Lanta where we had sunny mornings and most of the time cloudy and rainy afternoons, also rather unusual for that time of the year on Koh Lanta.
The PADI IE went very well and all of my four candidates passed the exams very successfully.

Now here's what most of you are looking forward to, the weather forecast for next week. Well, to keep it to the point, it looks like it's going to be fab! Sunny skies and warm and hot days are ahead of us next week and no rain at all is predicted!
Next Friday 14th April sees Songkran, if you are here on Koh Samui, an event not to be missed, and hard or impossible to miss. Enjoy it!
Please do 'like' my Koh Samui blog Facebook page and enjoy the beaches around the island or in front of your hotel or resort and get some well deserved rest and a break. If you're done resting or need something else to do, there's plenty of things on offer on and around Koh Samui, you can go snorkeling or diving or take a dive course. You can also enjoy some of the trips I recommend, like a half day gourmet lunch and snorkeling trip at the Southern part of Koh Samui or a photography trip where you get to see the most photo genetic spots on the island or go for a drinks tasting tour if you like a tipple or two.
