Goodbye to February 2020

Goodbye to February 2020

We have arrived at the last day of this month, hence, time to say Goodbye to February 2020. It's also a Leap Day. A fairly rare occurrence that only happens every four years.

This February was nice but not as good weather wise as previous years. Especially the third week of this month saw almost one week long, rain showers each day. The last week was a mix of partially to fully clouded skies, laced with sunshine as well. However, last week there was no rain.
A good February, not an outstanding February in the Samui archipelago.

I was happy to be at home this month. Except for a short trip to Kuala Lumpur in Malaysia. Our first ever visit to this sparkling city. We enjoyed it a lot and are looking forward to be able to visit again.

Goodbye to February 2020

Empty shop space in Chaweng for rent. All around the island more and more empty shopping places, restaurants or other real estate is up for sale or rent. Tourism numbers were already dropping due to the high Thai Baht exchange rate, before January this year. With the Covid-19 virus, things have gotten a lot worse. Everybody in Thailand working in the tourism industry feels the impact. Even outside the tourism industry people start to feel it. Many shops, restaurants etc can't make enough money to pay the rent anymore. February is usually one of the busiest months in the year. This year it has been below average.

It's time to start looking forward, to March 2020. If you're on the island, enjoy all things Koh Samui has to offer. You have all of the island almost to yourself!
I'm off to visit my Mum and my sister and her family, who will be here for a week! Eight people who decided to continue their holidays and we will make the most out of it!

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! 

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