    hi there,

    When planning a trip to Thailand islands, you need to be aware that the two coasts of Thailand experience different weather patterns. If you are traveling to Thailand to scuba or snorkel, it is important to arrive in the right season.

    Between October and April, the Andaman coast, on the western side of the country, experiences great weather. This coast includes Koh Phi Phi and Koh Lanta, as well as the island destination of Phuket.

    Between May and September, the Andaman coast experiences its rainy season. During this time, it is best to travel to the Gulf of Thailand side of the country, to the east. Koh Samui for example, is one of the most popular tropical islands in Thailand, and it boasts an international airport that is easy to reach via domestic flights from Bangkok.

    If you however prefer less tourists, you come to Phuket and the other Islands during low season. You will have rain, but not that much - mostly in the afternoon. But you have less tourists, free beaches and everything is cheaper ;)
    Best regards
