Welcome to November 2017

Welcome to November 2017

It's the first day of this new month and here we go; Welcome to November 2017.

Today is very cloudy and a fair wind is starting to blow, increasing in strength throughout the day. Later during the day rain is expected to start come down and it's supposed to continue  to rain pretty much until and throughout Saturday. At 7am the current temperature is 28.2C

November is when the monsoon starts and it can get very wet around the island, with all associated issues that come along with this, like floods and power cuts, just to name a few.
Last year saw a nice November, with plenty of sun but also enough rain but the year before, 2015, saw almost non stop rain.

The forecast is not looking too good for the first week with some strong winds coming in over the next couple of days and plenty of rain.

Welcome to November 2017

Welcome to November 2017; Samui hot club, a clothes shop now located in the South of the island in Lipa Noi but it used to be smack down in the middle of Chaweng. Now it's about 10 minutes outside of Nathon if you drive direction Lamai.

We will also see Loy Kratong on Friday 3rd November, the very popular festivity around Thailand where you put a float in water. On Koh Samui typically at Wat Plai Laem or Chaweng lake. It will be my third year in total that I will celebrate this in Khao Lak.

Welcome to November 2017

Welcome to November 2017; The harbor in Thap Lamu where all the day trips and live aboard boats to the Similan islands, Koh Tachai, Koh Bon, Richelieu Rock and the Burma banks leave. The pier offers more space to bigger boats than is just shown on the picture. Local fisherman also use this and other piers and the Thai Navy has their own pier just a few hundred meters away.

The first week of this month I will spend in Khao Lak and a day on Phuket and two weeks will be spend in Moalboal in the Philippines, which leaves little time at home. The weekly updates and any other interesting island developments or events will be resported about, as always.

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.
