Default Thailand (Phuket/Bangkok) in September

I'm heading to Thailand for 2 weeks in September... a week in Bangkok and a week in Phuket.

Wondering what to expect as weather/conditions go. I know its Monsoon season, but have no basis for comparisson. Will it rain all day, every day? Pour like a bastard for a few hours, and then clear up and be lovely?

You get the idea... just wondering what it might be like...

Thanks!

Zippy

Well, most of the rainy season is exactly like you mention, except the other way
around: Lovely all day, then poor like a bastard for a few hours in the
afternoon/evening and then clear up again for a relatively cool night.

However, September is the month with the most days where it rains most of the day.
Halfway down October the rains stop in the North, the South takes a little longer.

If wheather is a major consideration and you have the option to move your trip a bit
then I would go either a bit earlier or later.

Cheers, Chanchao

Hi

I went to Thailand (Bangkok, Koh Samui and Phuket) in September a few years back. We
had a great time even if it poured down from time to time. But we never had days
where it rained all the time but we did have days where we didn't get any rain at
all. I had a great time even if it was in the middle of wet season.

After the trip I wrote a travelogue that I posted together with some pictures on my
homepage. Feel free to visit it on http://donar.netpower.no/~ghk/

Hope that you will have a great time on your trip. I'm going back again in September
and this time I'm going to check out Krabi.

Would love to check out your travellogue and pictures... but your site seems to be down...?

Is the URL right?

Thanks,

If it rains too much just head to Malaysia. In September the weather on peninsular
Malaysia's east coast (Perhentian island for instance) is great.

If the rain is too much remember that the Gulf coast is relatively dry.

Hello,

I saw that you have been to Koh Kood. I'll like to go for a couple of days in mid
august. What's weather like? Other information available? Could not gain access to
your pictures.

Thanks in advance.

Regards, gim
