If you’re unsure about the timing and you want to make the most out of your trip, keep reading. In this article, we’ll share with you the best time to visit Koh Samui. Let’s begin!

Best months to visit Koh Samui

If you want to plan ahead, consider visiting Koh Samui between December to February, Thailand’s dry season. During this time, the island can get a little busy, but the weather is incredible.

Because the weather is much kinder, you’ll be able to enjoy various watersports activities, jump into the sea, island-hop, and even go on a boat tour.

Koh Samui in different seasons

If you’re not a fan of the rainy weather, you should visit Koh Samui during its dry season, when there is barely any rainfall, and the temperatures are much lower and manageable. The waters are calmer during this season, making it perfect for water activities like swimming and kayaking.

If you want to be by the beach during summer, head over to Koh Samui during the hot season, around March to August. At this time, you’ll get to experience hours of sunshine with minimal overcast and clouds. Make the most of this season by diving, snorkeling, and booking a beachfront resort in Koh Samui so you can quickly run to the waters for a quick refreshing dip.

If you’re not a fan of huge crowds and would rather visit the island during off-peak season, make your way to Koh Samui during the rainy season, which is during September all through November. During this time, tropical storms hit this island regularly, but you’ll still get a window of sunshine in between.

Budget-friendly time

Are you on a tight budget? If so, the best time to visit Koh Samui is during October and November because people tend to stay away from the island as tropical storms approach. Because of this, many hotels offer huge promos, and airlines provide large discounts for travelers.

Another great option is to visit from April to May when the hot season is at its peak. During this time, humidity is high, and it can get incredibly hot, making you want to escape indoors from time to time. But fortunately, you’ll deal with a much smaller crowd during this season, allowing you to enjoy the beach.


Now that you know the best time to visit this beautiful island, it’s time for you to book a room at a beachfront resort in Koh Samui, such as Banana Fan Sea Resort. This is the perfect place for you to go to if you want to relax, unwind, and take a break from your busy life, even just for the weekend.
