Gutted! Koh Samui August with family

Jump to last reply

Hi there, I am planning a kind of trip of a lifetime with my family by coming to Thailand in August (school holidays)

After researching I deduced that Koh Samui would have the best chance of dry, sunny weather this time of year as that, and a nice white beach is important.

I'm doing Chiang Mai for 4 days and 2 days in Bangkok but am gutted after reading some posts on here about Koh Samui not being "authentic" Thai island.

I have booked a lovely hotel on South Chaweng beach as that seems to be a nice beach but am really upset that the whole area may shatter my Thai dreams!

What do people think? Is there anywhere else in August that I could go to which will have nice sunny weather which is less commercialised or do you think Koh Samui is not as bad as people think?

Thanks so much.
