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.
