Koh Samui is a Luxury Destination
Koh Samui, or Samui, is one of Thailand's most scenic islands, situated in the Gulf of Thailand. Located around 85 km east of Surat Thani and around 700 km south of Bangkok, Koh Samui is the biggest island in the Gulf of Siam and 3rd biggest island in Thailand. It is also called as Coconut Island due to its infinite number of coconut trees, giving over 2 million coconuts a month.
Koh Samui is one of Thailand's most popular tropical island holiday destinations which lies in the Gulf of Thailand, part of the South China Sea. The island is renowned for its endless stretches of white sands, coconut tree covered hillsides and idyllic weather throughout most of the year. But when are the best times to visit Koh Samui and are there any times that should be avoided to ensure the sun shines throughout your stay?
The weather on Koh Samui is dry, humid and hot throughout the year though it is affected by both the Southeast Monsoon and the Northwest Monsoon systems. The SE monsoon causes storms to sweep in from Indonesia and The Philippines towards Thailand and Malaysia during the months of October, November and December. The NW monsoon moves in from India during the months of June, July and the start of August though Koh Samui isn't badly affected by this system as the Thai mainland protects the island from much of its effects.
