With world class resorts fronted by powdered beaches and a crystal clear ocean, the beautiful island of Koh Samui is the perfect answer for those looking for a dreamy island getaway. A favourite amongst honeymooners and newly weds, Koh Samui is paradise on earth.
On such a picturesque island, it’s no surprise that the coast is where many visitors spend most of their time. But if snorkelling, spas and sand somehow become tiring, you can head into Koh Samui’s villages that are dotted over the gem-like island. Here there are some great bars and restaurants that offer a great lively atmosphere as well as traditional Thai cuisine. Sample the brightly coloured Thai markets offering everything from bolts of cloth, to gemstones and beautiful shell-craft. And when night falls, there are some fantastic local bars and cafes that offer a true taste of traditional Thailand.
If browsing the local markets and vibrant festivals gets you a little too hot and bothered, cool off with a swim in the pool at the foot of Namtok Hin Lat waterfall or take a dip in one of the many sparkling freshwater pools dotted about the lush green landscape. Guided treks and tours are also available through the rainforest, giving a sneak peek into the daily lives of the chimps, monkeys and beautiful tropical birds that live on the island. Pack bottled water and a camera and dive in!
Weddings and honeymoons are extremely popular on this Thai island. Planning your 2016/2017 honeymoon or wedding on the island of Koh Samui would make for a fantastic experience. With a huge choice of exclusive resorts and venues (including booking beautiful beach sunset spots) a wedding or honeymoon on Koh Samui would make for a timeless experience. Many exclusive resorts offer a personal wedding planning service, and all hotels have world class honeymoon suites.
Thailand has a tropical monsoon climate. Both temperatures and humidity are very high, with average temperatures reaching 28ºC throughout the year. Hottest temperatures are between March and April, which is a great time to visit if you can withstand the extremely high temperatures of over 30ºC. Thunderstorms and unpredictable rainstorms are also common during this time. September through November experience the heaviest on-off rainfall and humidity; with temperatures still peaking at 28ºC, it remains a very popular time for tourism, though diving can be restricted due to slightly poorer visibility.
The most popular time to visit is during the dry season from December through to February. During this time, rainfall is lighter, temperatures a little cooler and the ocean is calmer, great for beach holidays and diving trips. The time between Decembers to February is often peak tourism season, and a period when hotels are busiest.

Koh Samui is hot all year round, with temperatures bordering on sweltering between March and September, so you are going to want clothes that breathe. This means you are going to want to leave your jeans behind and stick to shorts, dresses and loose trousers. In terms of upper body, look for linen and keep clothes loose to ensure maximum comfort during the warm day.
Beautiful beaches are what Koh Samui is all about so your beachwear is going to be essential. You probably will not need the windbreaker but go for swimwear, beach towels, sun cream and something to entertain yourself with, be that a good book or a giant inflatable beach ball.
Always remember that a famously insane Full Moon Party is always round the corner in Koh Samui so prepare yourself for a night to remember when you are packing.
Finally, do not forget that tropical rains may affect your trip later on in the year so a pair of waterproof shoes and a poncho will not go to waste.
Koh Samui will never have you reaching for the thick coat but there are 3 distinct seasons which bring different experiences to this island’s tropical climate.
The dry season runs from December to February and as suggested by the name the rainfall is to a minimum. That together with the ambient average temperature of 27°C, the calm seas and the light winds makes it the most popular visiting season for tourists.
After this comes the hot season which lasts until September and brings average temperatures of around 30°C. There will be lovely long days of sunshine which make for blissful beach days if you can take the heat. Be prepared for the odd thunderstorm rolling in from the ocean if you are visiting after May though.
Finally, comes the rainy season. This season provides quintessential South East Asian monsoons which supply much needed fresh water to this parched island. Plan a holiday at this time if you want cheap rates and do not mind getting a little wet in pursuit of them.
