Koh Samui, Thailand Weekly Weather update; 10th December – 16th December 2018
Late afternoon but time for the Koh Samui, Thailand weekly weather update; 10th December – 16th December 2018.
It's been a busy day with a 10km race early morning in Phuket Town at 6am. After that I was off to Kata beach for the closing of the PADI IE (Instructor Exam). Both events went successfully. I was 6th this morning in my age category 55-59 during the run. At the PADI IE both of my candidates passed with flying colors.
In the meantime, back on Koh Samui, it came down bucket wise. Hard to very hard rain was around in the morning. Now it's slightly better, wet but no hard rain anymore. Current temperature at 16.30 is 25C.
Phuket had rain last night and a drizzle at occasion this morning. At 16.30 it's 29C and mostly cloudy.

Last week was a classic rainy season week on and around Koh Samui. Most days rain with sometimes hard rain. Plenty of floods all around the island. However, with the current drainage system, the water doesn't stay around for too long once it stops raining.
Temperatures last week ranged from 31C to 24C

Just hold on for three more days. Come Wednesday the rainy season is looking like it's on the way out. Tomorrow and Tuesday still look very wet but Wednesday afternoon it should turn dry, and the sun should break through again.
Get ready for a white Christmas! I mean, a dry Christmas!
Merry Christmas everybody and enjoy your time on Koh Samui next week.
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.
