Koh Samui Scene Koh Samui was once a Thai fishing community, and that charming sensibility is still present today. Spending time in Bophut is a wonderful way to soak up local culture; the beachy village restaurants and pubs are perfect spots to experience the sunset. There aren’t many other places where you can bask in the camp of a cabaret show and the solemnity of a Buddhist temple. As far as the latter goes, Wat Plai Laem is a magnificent vision of gilded red rooftops and a massive spindly-armed statue of Guanyin.

Climate: In Ko Samui, the climate is tropical, hot all year round, with a long rainy season due to the monsoon of Southeast Asia, which runs from May to mid-January, and a drier season from mid-January to April. The driest months are February and March, when, however, some showers can sometimes occur. The temperature is high throughout the year, around 30°C during the day and 25°C at night. The coolest months are December and January, while from February to May, an increase in temperature is observed, though less marked than in the mainland of Thailand; April and May are, albeit slightly, the hottest months. In the summer months, the heat continues to be intense and sultry, though tempered by sea breezes. The amount of sunshine is good in the driest period, from mid-January to April, while in the rest of the year, the sun often shines, but it alternates with some cloudiness, more or less widespread, and associated with rain showers.
