Samui Wining & Dining
A Warm Welcome

A Warm Welcome

After the European August holidays, when many tourists have returned home to their school and job commitments, Koh Samui is the perfect place to be. The average temperature falls to 28°C and you get the beaches to yourself. Yes, it does get a bit cloudier as you move from September into October, and the chance of rainfall increases, but then who wants sunburn anyhow?


In truth, the weather can be very unpredictable; gorgeous blue skies one minute and then a thunderstorm the next. But the temperature stays pretty constant and a good downpour and stronger breezes can be a relief if you are not used to the heat and humidity of island living.


Cooler temperatures give you an opportunity to pursue more sporty events. Get off the beaten track and go hiking or cycling in the hilly green interior. Seek out those hidden waterfalls and cafes, hire a kayak or stand up paddleboard, hit the gym or take a yoga class. Feeling lazy? Take a Thai cooking course, visit a spa and be pampered or just laze the days away on the beach or by the pool with a good book and a great ocean view.


Quieter October offers more privacy and seclusion and is popular with couples, especially those on honeymoon. It’s easier to find a hidden romantic table on the beach or in a snug corner of a restaurant. Enjoy!
