August - Phuket Or Samui?

Recommended Posts

Greetings....I've been coming to Thailand for years but mostly in winter time. I will be visiting BKK in early August and am wondering whether to go onto Samui or Phuket? I will only have about 4 days of beachtime...

 

I went to Samui once 20 years or so ago and thought it was ok but not that beautiful...big flat undramatic coconut plantation.... Since then I have been to Phuket many times and quite like Kata beach, the mountains behind it and the nightlife in Patong....If weather were not an issue I would just go to Phuket, but have heard Samui is better in August and Phuket can be rainy...I don't mind a bit of rain, but all day is no good...I'd appreciate the opinions of anyone with firsthand information...Thanks!

Samui should have the better weather conditions in August but that doesn't mean that Phuket has rain all day long. Difficult to predict weather but looking at statistics, weather wise, Samui wins hands down.

I am in Samui at the moment and been raining afternoons or evenings for an hour or so (maybe 4 or 5 times a week) . Still nice in the daytime. Lamai reasonable quiet at night times with bars pretty empty.
