    We can travel from the 21/8 to 10/9 and would love to do the islands in Southern Thailand, but the travel info suggests it is getting pretty wet by then. Just how bad is it? We can cope with short term heavy rain but would not appreciate many hours/days of rain as we will be enjoying beaches and travelling around.

    It is wet on the west coast, the gulf islands (ie Ko Samui, Ko Pha Ngan and Ko Tao) should be fine

    Last year, we had been at Koh Chang late August/ early september:

    There, it's low season and you'll get promotion prices. So, we have had a beautifull acommodation with incl. breakfast at K.B. resort/ Koh chang....really a good place to relax... the weather was fine, not as hot, as usually at Samui and Koh Phangan.

    Last year in Ko Lanta it didn't rain once in August and only a couple of times in September - I would take advantage of cheap prices and take a gamble on the weather - when it does rain, it typically only lasts an hour, comes at the same time each day, and clears the way for clear blue skies and sunshine for the rest of the day.
    The temperature is still 30+ and plenty of time for tanning between the rare showers!
