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,

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.
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,
