The climate of Ko Samui (Thailand)
Ko Samui is an island in the Gulf of Thailand. It is situated off the south east coast of Thailand. Ko Samui was discovered as a holiday destination by backpackers in the 1970s. Almost half a century later major project developers have settled here and tourism flourishes. Ko Samui has beautiful white beaches and an azure blue sea. Ko Samui is a young and attractive holiday destination. Besides tourism coconut plantations and fishery are the major sources of income.
Ko Samui has two types of seasons. The warm tropical part of the year has a short rainy season. As opposed to Phuket and other parts in South-Thailand Ko Samui has two rainy seasons. The first is limited to November only. In other parts of the year the climate is relatively dry. The second period starts in October and is part of the monsoon. Heavy rains for longer periods are not uncommon. This period lasts till December. During the regular rainy season less rain falls than in other parts of Thailand. During the rainy season tropical storms and hurricanes are not uncommon.
