There's going to be some rain and some grey days. But they'll also be a lot of sunshine.

In April there are quite a few overnight thunderstorms due to the heat and clouds building up over the mountains. So you can expect one of those every few days. But it's at night - so most people don't really notice the rain.

It's also getting near rainy season, so towards the end of the month in particular there will be some overcast days and isolated showers. Raining all day would be unlikely.

But everything still open, all trips and tours running as normal and they will get plenty of Vitamin D. So, no reason not to come in April - apart from it being very busy at Songkran.

Funny how often there is a rain around songkran, but as Ian says the rainy season has not kicked in, so that should not preclude a holiday. The water and sea is still good - this changes once the rains start to more white cappy etc. So the reason you might be cautious about coming is the heat - both at night as well as day, with the humidity thrown in. Is Koh Chang hotter than other parts of Thailand at that time of year? Maybe not, but it is very noticeable.

Sure they'll have a nice holiday wherever they decide.
