From what I have read so far the weather does not sound great for October!! However we are booked to visit Thailand for a couple of weeks. We had hoped to travel down to Krabi and Phi Phi around about 20th-28th October but am now wondering whether we should try one of the islands in the Gulf instead. We are fairly flexible and don't mind showers but do not want to have a week or more of non-stop rain!! Could anyone offer any advice? We are starting off in Bangkok and may well visit other areas first but had our hopes set on Phi Phi. Any offers on any other beach areas/islands which may be drier and not too 'hectic'? Have visited Koh Chang in May before and loved it? Could that be a drier option??!!
