If you are looking to enjoy a wonderful vacation here in Thailand, one of the best places you can visit and stay in is Koh Samui. It is an incredibly stunning island offering the subtropical experience that people crave for in vacation areas! However, due to its subtropical nature, it does come with a little drawback: rain.
Many people assume that they are locked away in their rooms with nothing to do if it starts raining. Fortunately, that is not true! There are still plenty of things you can do that are incredibly fun and exciting. From malls to massages, there is no shortage of fun here, given you aren’t afraid to get a little wet.
With that said, here are the things you can do in Samui even when it starts raining:
1. Visit a festival
If you thought you were going out to an open-air festival in the middle of a field, it isn’t what you think. The festival we are referring to is Central Festival—a massive mall sitting between Chaweng Lake and the beach. Sure, it is still open in the middle, meaning that if you walk around without an umbrella, you may get wet. However, this lifestyle shopping complex offers many in-building activities, such as a gaming arcade, among many other things.
There are plenty of things to do in the Central Festival mall, and all you need to do is visit the place and explore what it has to offer!
2. Get a tattoo
Too lazy to walk around? Well, if you always wanted to get a tattoo in Thailand, the rain gives you the perfect chance to sit down in a tattoo parlor and get the tattoo that you have always wanted. From permanent to temporary tattoos, there are plenty of options to pick from. You can also get a tattoo done in the traditional way, which utilizes a bamboo stick!
A tattoo is a great way to give yourself a souvenir you will never forget or lose. If you do want to get one, we recommend opting for the traditional method for a truly local and unforgettable experience.
3. Enjoy a spa and massage
If you want something a little more luxurious and indulgent for your body, consider visiting a spa and massage place for treatment. Koh Samui offers plenty of such treatments to help you relieve your body from any hidden pains and even help you to forget that it is raining in the first place.
If you aren’t interested in spa and massages but still want something a little more meditative, there are still venues that offer programs that offer exactly that. In other words, the resorts here offer all sorts of activities you can do to calm your body and mind—the perfect way to spend time while it rains.
As you can tell, there really is no reason to bore yourself in your room while it rains in Koh Samui. Apart from what we’ve already shared about what you can do, there are many other things you can go for, such as going to the theater to watch a movie or participating in a Thai cooking class.
Then again, who cares if it starts raining, right? The fun never stops in Koh Samui. Rain or shine, there are still plenty of opportunities to maximize your holiday here on this wonderful island.
