Weather & Climate
The weather in Koh Samui generally comes in three distinct seasons: dry, hot and rainy.
Thailand is situated between the Tropic of Cancer and the Equator (slightly closer to the latter), making its climate warm and humid all year round. The humidity level is generally between 70 and 85 per cent, and the temperatures averages at around 28°C.
Located in the Gulf of Thailand, Koh Samui offers all that vacationers from cooler temperate countries could dream of regarding weather conditions. They are generally good year round, and the one thing you will rarely feel is cold. The optimum weather conditions can be enjoyed between December and August.
The Dry Season in Samui
The Dry Season in Samui runs roughly from December to February. With warm yet bearable temperatures, little rain, calm seas, and light winds.
Many consider this to be the best of the Koh Samui weather and the ideal time to choose a holiday.
The Hot Season
The hottest time of year is between March and April - a great time to visit if you can stand 30°C+ temperatures. Generally and historiacally around late April/early May, there is normally a sudden – and, for many a welcome and sudden arrival of rain. Paradoxically, from June to August is also considered a mini-high season in Samui. The weather usually follows a repeating pattern: strong daytime sunshine followed by late afternoon thunderstorms which are very welcoming.
The Rainy Season
September through to November sees the arrival of the monsoon and, therefore, the heaviest rainfall. Even at this time, it doesn’t fall every day and often only in short bursts. Koh Samui weather forecasts become increasingly unreliable as the conditions become unpredictable, with slightly rougher seas and winds. Although still great for a holiday where you intend to spend a lot of your time at the local beaches (particularly if you like your beaches less crowded) this is not the best time to come for diving and snorkeling, as visibility is reduced by around 30 per cent.
It is also worth bearing in mind that some other water related activities will be affected by rough seas and high winds.
(Please note, the weather predictions for Koh Samui are very different to those of Phuket and Krabi, which experience different seasons due to their location in the country). Do make specific enquires with your travel agent and ensure you are getting the right information, especially if you intend to partake in activities such as scuba diving, sailing, general water sports and golfing.
