Thailand weather

Hi there... So there is so much information on the Internet that differs with regards to thailands weather. I realize it is unpredictable, but would like to know if June is a good month to visit koh samui? I want to be able to enjoy the beaches, sunshine and lots of water activities. I would like to go diving and be able to enjoy a good beach holiday under the sun. I have not yet decided whether I am going to phuket or koh samui.... The months I am likely to be able to travel are between June and December next year so would like to find the best month, and place that will give me hot sunny days and as little rain as possible :)

Basically koh samui and Phuket have quite contrast weather in the month of May - December.

May /June - October is rainy season in the west coast ( Phuket sides)

October - December / Jan rainy season in east coast ( koh Samui side)

The rest of the year are pretty much the same both sides.

That said with weather nowadays can be all over the place. Also keep in mind Thailand is tropical you might still have odd shower there and here even in dry season. keep in mind when its rains often the sea will be rough too.

June has great weather!!! Warm and sunny with the occasional shower, usually in the evening. It's also low season so the perfect time to travel IMO.

June should be good weather in Samui, probably sunny during the day with a quick thunderstorm in the evening.

We have been going to Samui for years in June and usually get great weather with the odd evening shower.

Perfect time to travel for us to enjoy great weather (beaches and snorkelling) and as Steph says it is low season so some good deals to get.

You have stated you can go between June and December. If you are looking at Samui then try for June - Sept.
