Koh Samui, Thailand weekly weather update; 17th July – 23rd July, 2017

Koh Samui, Thailand weekly weather update; 17th July – 23rd July, 2017

It's Sunday morning and time for the Koh Samui, Thailand weekly weather update; 17th July – 23rd July, 2017. My long Sunday morning run has been completed, 'only' 16km today and the very long weekend from school is almost over.

We have blue skies over Koh Samui this morning and it looks like a great day to work on your tan. It may get rather hot today, so get that sun lotion out, whether you're on the beach, on a motorbike or walking around, getting in and out of a car or mini bus all day long. Current temp at 10.30am is already 32C

Koh Samui, Thailand weekly weather update; 17th July – 23rd July, 2017; Lamai beach in front of Lamai Wanta resort. You can clearly see the box jelly fish warning post sign and the vinegar station next to it. The red line in the water is a box jelly fish protection net, in which it is safe to swim and play. The box jelly fish season is about to start and Hawaii based box jelly fish expert Angel Yanagihara visited Koh Samui over the last two weeks and caught life species of box jelly fish. Among others on Lamai beach.

Last week was fairly nice, only two days saw some rain, Monday and Friday. Most days were partially cloudy at best but it was still very warm. Temperatures ranged from 30C to 33C. A nice week, better than the previous week!

The forecast for next week sees an increase in wind with storm like conditions come Friday. That's still a few days ahead though and many things can change in-between today and Friday. There's also a fair chance of rain during next week, although the rain comes as tropical showers. Short but intense showers.

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. 

Contact me for more detailed information on any of the options mentioned.

I know that even in front of Ozo hotel to Chaweng beach there is a protection stinger net.

That's correct, there's also (and not even as you said) a stinger net in front of Ozo in Chaweng.
Two nets around all of the island is a bit meager. It's a start but there should be lots more of stinger nets in place, looking at Samui's history.
Just in my humble opinion.

Hi there I am traveling to Thailand on the 31St of July and I am staying for 3 weeks. What does the weather usually be like? Forecast says rain every day :( :(

Hi Paul,
Where in Thailand are you planning to go? It's a big country with potentially different weather patterns in different parts of the country.
From my end I can only give you some general information on Samui weather or try my Samui weather page on this blog.
