    Hi, me again. I will be in Thailand from 25th September until 20th October. Ive been reading up on the weather and have realised its in the monsson season. Will there be any islands that will be pretty much unaffected by this during October? As I was really hoping for some lazy beach time. Thanks

    That CAN be of the rainiest times of year just about anywhere in the country, but...
    1. It can also be sunny somewhere some of the time, just hope it coincides with your travels.
    2. When in doubt, probably go for Samui/Phanan/Tao in the lower eastern gulf which tends year-on-year to remain relatively dry through September.

    And finally
    3. With Thailand and tropical weather it's always fairly unpredictable. October is perhaps the most unpredictable period so wait and see. I've had great sunny weather on both sides in Oct, and some run-for-cover thunderstorms as well.

    Ko Samet is another option. It's one of the driest islands and relatively near Bangkok (3-4 hours away on a bus) but it tends to get quite busy at the weekends and accommodation is relatively expensive there. It's also (supposedly) a national park so there's an entrance fee.

    Raining all the time here in Issan right now. Mekong is high, and I'm getting wet on my bike!

    I would agree that Koh Samed is a good option, relatively dry there. But quiet that time of the year. If you like some more action and activities, Samui or Phuket will please you probably. I personally really like Koh Phagnan as well.

    Enjoy

    i would recommend for Phuket during your visit ...... but to avoid rainy season would therefore recon. for Hua-Hin / Cha-Am or Ko Samet

    You haven't given any indication what kind of things you'd like to see or do in Thailand so it's hard to say. If you don't mind the risk of rain (there should be some sunny interludes as well) you could have a look at the suggested itineraries here.

    If the weather is really dreadful you could always get on a plane to Bali or something.
