Koh Samui, Thailand weekly weather update; 9th September – 15th September 2019

Koh Samui, Thailand weekly weather update; 9th September – 15th September 2019

Sunday afternoon, and time for the Koh Samui, Thailand weekly weather update; 9th September – 15th September 2019.
It's a cloudy afternoon and at 1pm the current temperature is a cool 29C.

This morning I participated in the Samui Festival running event. The 5km race was on my schedule and I came in 21nd all over and 4th in my age group 50-59 years! Despite having a very fast 4'19 pace per km, I was a bit surprised that I didn't fare any better in the rankings. However, having said that, the first 3 in each age category for all distances, received price money. That surely brings out the freaks, so to speak. 
Next week at the Wharf, a charity run, will only see local Samui runners.

There was also a cycling event this morning, which caused a few traffic jams around the ring road! All in all, a great event, well organized and fun to participate in.

Koh Samui, Thailand weekly weather update; 9th September – 15th September 2019

Last week we had some hardcore flash floods Monday and Tuesday afternoon. All hell broke loose and the usual hot spots flooded in no time. Above you can see a picture Bang Rak on Tuesday afternoon. Each day, just after an hour or so, the water levels dropped again. No worries there. The next day was also nice, when all the mud turns into dust!
The rest fo the week was surprisingly nice. Partially cloudy to sunny.
Except for last night when it rained again. Yesterday may have seen a shower or two around the island as well.
Maximum temperatures reached 34C. The minimum got stuck at 22C

Koh Samui, Thailand weekly weather update; 9th September – 15th September 2019

Yesterday morning, Saturday, saw the yearly Tha yai event in the temples around Samui. This is at Wat Plai Laem.

For next week we have a forecast of strong wind and tropical showers until Wednesday. Come Thursday it should clear up again nnd we should be able to welcome the sun again.

Hope you will have a grand time if you're on Samui this week! Enjoy what the island has to offer!

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. Join me in a private dive trip with yours sincerely! 

 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.
