The weather in Koh Samui is pleasant throughout a year. The climate in the tropical island comes in mainly 3 seasons – Hot, Dry & Rainy. Do you know that Thailand lies in between equator and the tropic of Cancer? Due to this, the climate is warm & humid throughout the year. The average temperature is around 28 degree Celsius and humidity level: 70 to 85%.
In short, Koh Samui is a perfect place for the vacationers because of cooler temperature & suitable weather conditions. Situated in the Gulf of Thailand, Koh Samui maintains its position as the most visited place in Thailand after Bangkok & Pattaya. The temperature varies in between 23°C to 34°C and so, tourists can do lots of things to do.
How to Plan a Vacation in Koh Samui As per Weather Condition:
It’s a witty thing to know the weather condition of a place before exploring it. You will get a quick idea of what activities you can do and what to wear. Research the climate condition of your destination before buying a ticket. If you are planning to explore Koh Samui to do snorkeling and deep-diving activities; you must not book a ticket in the rainy seasons. Sometimes, due to heavy rain; you can’t explore the wildlife and waterfalls. October to December months are not good for the tourists; during this period, the chances of rain are high – ultimately a rainy season.
What’s Best Time to Visit Koh Samui?
February and March are two months with fewer rainy days & median cloud cover suitable for vacation. Generally, people consider them sunniest months. When the weather is sunny; the more places you can explore in a day without any hassles. During this period, spending a whole day at High Park to take part in dozens of adventure and fun activities (3 pools, water park slides, bumpers, zipline, climbing wall, live Djs, panoramic views and more..) is worth to enjoy with your beloved one. Another season is September to October much suitable for the tourists across the world.
Rather than the above seasons; you can visit the Koh Samui island in April. WHY? The Songkran – the biggest water festival in Samui where local people gather on the road and pour water each other is held in the month.
When Not to Visit the Tropical Island?
We strongly recommend you Mid October to December is the rainy season. Average rainfall in November is 1.6 Feet of rain. It’s really not a good idea to plan a vacation in this month. However, the booking prices are very low but not worth.
Plan your vacation after researching the weather condition to not get your holiday spoiled. Enjoy the vacation in Koh Samui, Thailand and capture the best memories of a lifetime.
