Thinking about visiting KK in early December. All our research says the heaviest rainfall is between November - March. Last year, our trip on Koh Samui in Thailand was a disappointment with continual rain the entire time we stayed there. Don't want another washout of a vacation this year....
I see from forum postings rain in KK is usually confined to late afternoon or early evening. Are all day rains truly rare in KK during this time of year? Last thing I want is to be huddled in a hotel room with a jet lagged 3 year old child after traveling 20+ hours looking out a wet gray skies... (did it last year and it was MISERABLE :)
Interested in being able to be out in the sun by the hotel swimming pool or beach for a reasonable amount of time during our holiday, enjoy the food and do a little bit of shopping. Maybe a side trip to do some touring - as much as we can given the limitations of traveling with a 3 year old.
Should I cast my eyes elsewhere? Not too wild about the idea of Penang - seems pretty built up - and Langkawi on the other extreme. KK seems interesting and worth a visit but is the weather a deterrent during this time of the year.
Thanks for any candid advice you can offer.
