Koh Samui, Thailand weekly weather update; 3rd December – 9th December 2018

Koh Samui, Thailand weekly weather update; 3rd December – 9th December 2018 


It's Sunday morning and once more time to have a look at the Koh Samui, Thailand weekly weather update; 3rd December – 9th December 2018.

Koh Samui has been struggling with plenty of rain the last week and this Sunday morning was no exception. Hard rain early on in the morning and right now at 10am it's still the same, cloudy and wet. Current temperature at 10am is 26C

Since Tuesday I am on Phuket, enjoying much better weather conditions here compared to Samui. Sometimes an afternoon or evening with hard, but also plenty of sun time. Current temperature near Kata on Phuket at 10am today is 28C and it's partially cloudy.

This morning a participated in a 10km race at Bangtao beach on Phuket, which is near the Phuket Laguna. I did well qith a race over 10.85km in 50'49 minutes and got the 4th place in my age category 50-59 years old. On Phuket that's a good result for me!

Last week, around mid week the rainy season hit Koh Samui full on. Lots of rain, cloudy skies and plenty of flash floods all over the island. If you're really lucky, you will get a power cut thrown in at no extra cost!
Maximum temperatures reached 32C and minimum temperature reached 23C on 7th December.

Koh Samui, Thailand weekly weather update; 3rd December – 9th December 2018; This morning I ran a mini marathon in Bangtao on Phuket. This is a picture at Bangtao beach, with some free roaming pigs.

The forecast is not looking too good for next week. A steady, fairly strong wind and hard rain to light rain pretty much every day with few breaks in the downpour. Let's hope this won't last too long and we can welcome sunnier skies soon enough again.

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.

Koh Samui, Thailand weekly weather update; 26th November – 2nd December 2018

Koh Samui, Thailand weekly weather update; 26th November – 2nd December 2018 


It's Sunday morning and this blog we have a look at the Koh Samui, Thailand weekly weather update; 26th November – 2nd December 2018.

It's nice and fairly sunny with a current temperature of 30C on Koh Samui but it feels already much closer to cooking temperature once you're out in the sun.

I find myself for the third consecutive weekend in Surat Thani. Yesterday my wife's niece graduated from the Tapee University in Surat Thai, so the whole family came over. 
This morning a ran a 10k mini marathon race. I also ran 3km before and 5.5km after after the race to get my training quota in. 
Now it's time to enjoy the weekend market in Surat Thai and a few other shopping opportunities that my wife wants to visit!

Koh Samui, Thailand weekly weather update; 26th November – 2nd December 2018, The big Seatran ferry # 10 at the Nathon pier, ready to unload. The last three weekends I was in Surat Thani, including this current weekend. Lots of Seatran travelling and use. Tuesday I will be on the road again, off to Phuket to start a PADI IDC come Wednesday,

Last week was a nice week, with plenty of good weather and sunshine. Two days had rain, towards the end of the week but the weekend was nice again. Maximum temperatures reached 34C and minimum temperatures reached 24C.
Another very good week for a rainy season! Mild and fairly sunny! Keep it coming!

Koh Samui, Thailand weekly weather update; 26th November – 2nd December 2018

Koh Samui, Thailand weekly weather update; 26th November – 2nd December 2018; Surat Thani flat bottom boat trip at the weekend market. This market and the boat tour are located just over the bridge at the city shrine, a few kilometers inland at a local temple or wat. The bot ride is 20Baht per person and well worth it. A nice and relaxed ride for about 15-20 minutes in a nice natural environment with a canopy made by water palm trees. The market is also nice and worthwhile visiting. Some good food to be had!

The forecast for next week is looking good for tomorrow. After that be prepared for a couple of showers each day and some hard wind and wet days over the weekend.

Welcome to December 2018

Welcome to December 2018


The last month of the year has started and it's a 'warm' Welcome to December 2018. 
The weather during December on Koh Samui has typically two faces. A wet and windy face with lots of rain, thunderstorms and flash floods during the first half of December. Less clouds and rain with some more sunshine during the second half of the month.
These are generalizations though. Last year we had a very rough December almost all month long. This year it looks like the first couple of days of December 2018 are looking nice. Later during the week, some rain might show up and next weekend looks windy and wet!

Welcome to December 2018

Welcome to December 2018; Nathon boulevard, yesterday late afternoon. The sun is setting and the Seatran ferry to Donsak is about to set sail. With us on it! Three weekends in a row now, I have been in Surat Thani! This weekend for our nieces University graduation ceremony.

It will be a busy month for me, a PADI IDC needs to be taught on Phuket. The next fur Sundays will also see 10km runs or mini marathons as they are called here in Thailand. Two in Surat Thani with tomorrow morning one of them and a Christmas run in Surat. The next two weekends will see me in action on Phuket.

There will also be plenty of Christmas and New Years activities around the island. Check with your respective hotels and keep an eye out on my Facebook page.

Enjoy your stay on Koh Samui throughout this December and merry festive days!
