We are due to arrive at Ko Lanta on 27th and the online weather forecasts are showing rain every day for the 10 days we are there yet a couple of years ago at the same time it was lovely on Samui so I've no idea whats going on!!

I'm not sure what you are talking about as I am seeing a mostly low chance of rain, which will only last an hour or two at most, the temperature is in the 30's with not much rain, what more could you ask for. Yes, you will see the storm icon, it's a tropical country and storm activity is ever present, but it doesn't mean there will be rain, this is a very normal weather pattern for this time of year:

I wouldn't pay too much attention to the weather charts. I've just arrived in Krabi and no rain yet.

Seriously though, I was here last November for a week and three of the weather forecast sites I was using said rain every day. It rained once for about an hour .......... so I went and had lunch.

I believe it may be rainy season for Ko Samui but that is on the east coast as opposed to Ko Lanta which is on the west cost. Different rain seasons.

It's a heck of a lot warmer than Cheshire so you may like a rain shower to cool things a bit!
