    I will be in Thailand for my first trip June 22 - July 6. I want to visit an island or two but am concerned about the rain. The wonderful TravelFish animated weather map shows the islands of Ko Tao, Ko Pha Ngan, and Ko Samui as having less rain than the other islands during my time period. Is it still too rainy to soak up some sun on the beach or should I bring my suntan lotion? Also, what other cities from Bangkok to up north would I not have as much a problem with lots of rain?

    hola steebee,

    you are right that the island in the gulf of thailand typically get the least amount of rain during that time. but you are travelling during the rainy season, and it is going to rain pretty much wherever you go. normally that still means pretty good weather during the day, with good showers in the early to late afternoon, although there are times when it rains all day.

    somtam's recent post from ko samui suggests that the rainy season weather pattern of daily afternoon showers may have already started.

    anyway, check out the average rainfall tables in the Thailand Weather FAQ section. it will list how much rain you can expect in all regions of the country, and is exactly the info you are looking for and should help you determine where you'll want to travel. regards.

    I'm looking at starting from Chiang Mai for a few days. Heard it is the rainy season now. How bad would the weather be? Would that rule out trekking?
