                                                                                                                       Samui, November 2010.

Rain, Storm, Waves. 

It makes me want to say Eat, Pray, Love :-) ....what else to do in this weather....

We never know in advance what kind of rainy season we are going to have, and  how long this kind of weather will stay for,  but before you even think of booking your holiday to Samui in November - please look at these pictures first, and then think again if you want to take a chance.

    I know you guys need the rain, but i hope it clears up when i arrive in late November.

    Thanks for posting.

  2. Hopefully it will get better...It's quite difficult here right now..

  3. Thanks! Most of them we took from our balcony as weren't able to leave the house for 2 days :-)

  4. Hi Elina,
    I am writing you from Vancouver, BC and we are going to be travelling Nov. 3-21 to Thailand with our 5 and 7 year old kids. I found you blog and wanted to ask you if the flooding is truly quite bad in Koh Samui right now. We will be there soon! Thank you for all the information on your blog. cheers,S.

  5. There is NO flooding in Sami or anywhere near Samui whatsoever, there is hardly any rain here, and the weather is very good most of the days.

  6. I'm getting a better idea about the weather there ~during what I call Autumn. I plan to be there for a month in October: & I wanna know if it'll be raining for the bulk of the time during my stay. ThanX. & what a WONDERFUL blog you have here!

    1. Thank you! It should be fine first half of October, but no one can guarantee what will happen towards the end of October as it's official beginning or rainy season. Every year is different though.

  7. Hi Elina, I found your blog to be very useful and informative! Thank you for keeping sucha great blog. I plan on visiting Koh Samui next week(all the way from Canada) and I'd like to ask you what the weather has been like lately? I know it's been pouring daily in Bangkok. Thank you!
