Koh Samui, Thailand weekly weather update; 12th February –18th February 2018

Koh Samui, Thailand weekly weather update; 12th February –18th February 2018 


Sunday morning, a busy running weekend on Phuket being done and dusted and time for the Koh Samui, Thailand weekly weather update; 12th February –18th February 2018.
On Koh Samui we have a hazy morning with a few clouds in the sky but it looks like we will have another warm day today. Current temp at 9.30am is 28C although it does feel slightly warmer already.

Yesterday I travelled to Phuket for a busy weekend of running, yesterday evening I ran the Phuket night run over 10.7km in Phuket town and managed to place second in my age group of 55-59 years old.
This morning, after just a seven hour break, I ran another 10.45km race at the Siriroj Hospital, near Central Festival and the Phuket hyperbaric chamber. This morning my legs felt a little bit fatigued and I placed ninth in the 50-59 years old age group.

The weather on Phuket is nice, a blue sky is shaping up and it might get very warm here, later during the day. Current temperature at 9.30am is 27C and it does feel warmer.

Today I will travel to Khao Lak, where I will start a PADI IDC tomorrow morning.

Koh Samui, Thailand weekly weather update; 12th February –18th February 2018; At Wat Plai Laem this building is still under construction, but there's steady progress. It is the new place where the communal kitchen will be positioned and managed. When a relative of a local family becomes monk or passes away or any other significant Buddhist celebration, here is where the local families will cook food for people paying their respect or visiting the ceremony.

Last week saw a lovely February week reign over Koh Samui. Some light train on Tuesday but other than that, it was lovely and warm with plenty of sunshine. Maximum temperatures ranged from 29C on Tuesday to 33C on Friday.

Koh Samui, Thailand weekly weather update; 12th February –18th February 2018; More construction, this time from Phuket. The Chalong circle or roundabout is under construction. A tunnel is being build and it may affect traffic for two to three years. At certain times of the day, definitely a place to avoid, due to long traffic jams and waiting times.

The forecast for next week is looking good, although it may not be as nice as last week. A few thunderstorms throughout the week can be expected with some light rain. The rain periods should short but possibly hard! Typical tropical showers with the wind picking up possibly over next weekend.
There's still plenty of sunshine to be enjoyed during next week, so don't despair. Sun lotion may be needed!

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.
