    I have never been to Thailand and am planning a two week trip for the last week of August and the first week of September.

    I am wondering what the wheather should be like? If it rains a few hours a day and then the sun will be out again that's okay, but might it be raining all day for several days in a row?

    I've heard that the eastern side of the peninsula is dryer than the western side - does anyone have any recommendations for destinations on the eastern side?

    Thanks so much,

    Markus

    Hi Markus,

    Welcome to Travelfish!

    Take a look at our "weatherfish" which will give you the climate info across Thailand, but in summary, your points are valid -- the east coast islands (Samui, Pha Ngan and Tao) will all be drier than the west coast ones. If you do try the west coast, expect a few hours of rain a day rather than all day torrential affairs.

    Thanks, Somtam!

    I just looked at the "wheatherfish", and that was helpful. Of the islands you mention, Samui, Pha Ngan, and Tao, which are the quiter and unspoilt ones? We are looking for a quiet and unspoilt place just to get away from it all?

    Do think this time of year we will be able to enjoy a "beach-vacation" (lying around in the sun) or should the rain be too much?

    Thanks so much for any leads,

    Markus

    I'd say Ko Pha Ngan could be the best choice, and you'll have plenty of opportunity to lay around in the sun...
