Koh Samui, Thailand weekly weather update; 5th November – 11th November 2018

Sunday afternoon at Suvarnabhumi airport in Bangkok but time for the Koh Samui, Thailand weekly weather update; 5th November – 11th November 2018!
It's been a hell of a week with a bona fide seeing off at the end.

Currently it's 30C on Koh Samui at 5pm and it was dry and partially sunny again today. A nice break from earlier this week. There was a run around the island with many join/exit points today and my wife joined the event. I would have run a part of it but ended up being in Bangkok this weekend.

My time in Bangkok was spent training for, on and with a timing result company at sport events. Yesterday I spent a day in the office getting familiar with the timing system and all the hardware. This was followed by staffing with the timing crew at a half marathon and 10km event. It was strange to be on the other side of the fence this time!

It's a quarter past five in the afternoon at Suvarnabhumi where I am waiting for my flight back home. Current temperature here at the airport is 35C. It was a very dry weekend in Bangkok.

Koh Samui, Thailand weekly weather update; 5th November – 11th November 2018; Flooding in front of Big C, one of the hot spots around the island. Picture by Yunona Rozhdestvenskaya.

The first half of the week was really nice with sunshine and slightly cooler weather. The previous two days however, Friday and Saturday had it in them. Hard to moderate rain all day long. Possibly due to a having been thunderstruck, a teak house in Bang Rak burned down and flash floods were at many points around the northern part of the island.
The drainage system can't deal with lots of rain in a short time frame but it's good to see that once the rain stops the floods disappear rather quickly.

Temperatures last week ranged between 33 and 24C

Koh Samui, Thailand weekly weather update; 5th November – 11th November 2018; Burger King Bangkok style. A fairly newly opened outlet at Surawongse road, in typical Old Thai style. This outlet received a lot of attention in social media in Thailand.

The forecast for next week is looking good for this time of the year. No more torrential rains and subsequent floods should be part of next week. Instead it may be partially cloudy at best with an occasional shower throughout the day or night. Good stuff for this time of the year and month. 
Enjoy your stay on the island!

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. 

You may also opt for a very special dinner experience at The Thai Experience. Behind closed doors, reservation only and a very enjoyable and well worthwhile way of spending an evening on Samui. Authentic Thai food and a great atmosphere. Can highly recommend this experience. 

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