Weather – There are two seasons in Koh Samui: the wet and the dry season. The wet season starts in late September and ends in late December. The dry season begins in February and ends in May, with June to September having an equal share of sunny and rainy days. It’s basically pleasant all year round in Koh Samui except for the frequent rainfall during the wet season.
Best Time of the Year to Plan a Wedding in Koh Samui – February is the best time of the year to do a wedding in Koh Samui. Not only is it the start of the dry season, but unlike April and May where it’s hot and humid, February’s weather is still quite pleasant with the cool breeze yet very low chances of rainfall. The waters are also calmer in February, which means you and your guests will have more fun swimming, snorkeling, and scuba diving.
Options for Venues – Koh Samui has a developed tourism infrastructure and you won’t have any problems looking for the perfect venue for your dream wedding. You can take your pick from clifftop villas with stunning views of the Gulf of Thailand, or expansive beachfront villas that have the vast horizon and the crystal blue waters as your backdrop. Whatever venue you have in mind, rest assured Koh Samui will deliver.
Suppliers – Because Koh Samui has become one of the top locations for destination weddings in Southeast Asia, world-class suppliers have anchored their businesses on the island. From the freshest flowers imported from abroad to the most discerning caterers, to international DJs or bands, rest assured Koh Samui’s suppliers will turn your dream wedding to reality.
International Airport – Though Koh Samui’s airport is not as busy as Phuket or Bangkok, it does have a few international flights. They have direct flights to and from Malaysia, Singapore, Hong Kong, and Nepal. It is also privately owned by Bangkok Airways.
Unlimited Options for Accommodation – Koh Samui is Thailand’s 2nd biggest and 2nd most popular island, which means there are plenty of accommodations to choose from. Your guests can stay in the most luxurious 5-star resorts with private beaches, clifftop hotels with infinity pools that seem to dangle off a cliff, and many private villas that offer privacy and exclusivity.
Activities – Koh Samui has a more laid-back and low-key appeal as compared to Phuket, which means your kids will definitely enjoy the rest and relaxation they’ll experience on the island. But just because Koh Samui is less lively than Phuket, it doesn’t mean there’s little to do on the island. There are temples to visit, beaches to sunbathe in, plenty of shipping opportunities, and a world of natural beauty to explore.
Here are just some of the activities that you and your guests will want to experience in Koh Samui:
- a day trip to Ang Thong Marine Park for snorkeling, kayaking, and exploring of caves along the emerald-colored lake
- a visit to the peculiar rock formations of Hin Ta and Hin Yai
- waterfall hunting
- temple visits to Big Buddha and Wat Plai Laem with their huge Buddhist statues
- sunbathing and watersports in Chaweng beach
- shopping in Chaweing Beach Road, Central Festival, and Lamai Walking Street
