Koh Samui, Thailand Weekly Weather update; 18th December –24th December, 2017
It's Sunday morning, the long run is done and dusted and it's time for the Koh Samui, Thailand weekly weather update; 18th December –24th December, 2017.
It's partially cloudy with plenty of nice and sunny moments and the current temperature at almost 10am is a nice and cool 28.4C
This is a great time of the year for running and cycling. The temperatures drop and the mornings are nice and cool, around 25 to 26C. As long as it stays dry!
Koh Samui, Thailand weekly weather update; 18th December –24th December, 2017; Along Plai Laem beach, at the most Southern point, you can find this 'sala' which is used for local people as a place of worship. Statues of an elderly couple are placed within the 'sala'.
Last week was surprisingly nice and sunny. There was a very strong wind blowing all week long, which seems to only have been completely dissolved by today. That wind was cold though! Many local Thai people were dressed up as if 'winter had come' to Koh Samui.
The wind had so much strength that most or all daily boat trips were cancelled. So no diving and/or snorkel trips were going out.
The ferries to Koh Phangan and Koh Tao were still going although the Lomprayah boats had to use Nathon as arrival and departure location.
Temperatures ranged between 27 and 31C during last week.
The predicted tropical storm went on a South bound route and hit Malaysia over this weekend.

The forecast for next week is not looking that good. Strong wind is expected come Tuesday accompanied by some rain.
A fair wind is still expected on all other remaining days of the year with rain showers to go along with the wind.
Stay safe and dry! See you next week 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.
