Koh samui or Phuket for end of October

Any idea where the weather will be better this time of year? We're trying to decide between these two destinations.

You got any other times during the year available?

October is the hardest month in southern Thailand to predict the weather.October is the supposed start of the wet season for the Gulf side(Samui)& on the Andaman side it`s the end of the monsoon season.

Weather patterns in the south have been a little skewiff compared to other times but seeing your looking at going end of October I would suggest Phuket is your best chance of good weather but who knows!!!!

If someone went to Samui during October would they not have a good time? Would there be no sun at all for any water activites or are we talking just a heavy rain every morning and the rest of the day would be sunny? Thanks!
