It's hard to say what will like this year in terms of wether it could rain more than last year or less than last year no one knows. I have seen you posted in different forum.

With just only 4 days I don't think it really worht it to go that far and the weather might not be your side. Also you will spend your precious time traveling to and from the island. IMHO I will stick to Bangkok then perhaps do one day trip to kanchanaburi, ayudthaya, canal tours, ancient city, erawan museum and those temple grandpalace. There are so much to see and do in and around Bangkok.

Just a thought ...

Agree with Pea, you just can't predict these things. I've been in Samui when it rains non stop for a week, others have been there and had little to no rain at all. If you must have a beach vacation then have a look at Hua Hin which is only a couple of hours drive (185km) south of Bangkok and is one of the drier areas in October - it still retains some Thainess and there's plenty to do there.

Given your time limits in your other post I vote Hua Hin too. Has a good mix of everything and when we went in October it had the best weather of all the places we visited.

Good luck
