Goodbye to March 2019

Goodbye to March 2019

Just one more day to go but already time to say Goodbye to March 2019 on this blog.

It has been a good month, with plenty of sunshine. There were actually a few days of rain as well. They were needed and welcomed! At least by us residents. After six weeks of no rain, the wells start to run dry and rain is needed. Besides those few days with some rain, it was hot. Each day seemed to get hotter. Plenty of sunshine and as the picture below shows, also plenty of days being partially clouded.

All in all a very good month, kind of what you expect during March on Koh Samui. Not like eight years ago, in 2011. During that March Samui experienced some of the worst floods it ever had. Check one link here. Plenty of more links on this website or on my Samui blog Facebook page.

Goodbye to March 2019

In the South of the island you can find Laem Sor Pagoda. This is a view of the back of the pagoda. Interesting island history to find here. There's a building with glass walls that houses the boat on which a monk landed on Koh Samui in the 1940's.

It was nice to spend time on Koh Samui, being home with the family this month. 

Event wise, it started with a half marathon in Surat Thani and will end with a 10 mile race tomorrow on Phuket. Right now I'm in Khao Lak teaching a PADI IDC. 

Next month will see the hottest month of the year on Koh Samui, April. This month will also bring Songkran, the Thai New Year.

Come Saturday to Sunday night 6th April, the 7th Koh Samui Midnight Run will take place. Start and finish at the Reggae pub in Chaweng. 
Early the next morning there will be a trail run in Maenam's Soi 1, the Soi where immigration is. A 5km, 10km and 30km trail run are on the menu. Hope to see you at either or both events!

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.
