Looking for Sunshine in June!

Hi Guys,

Where am i most likely to get the highest chance of decent sinshine for 2 weeks in Thailand around June time?

My instinct tells me Koh Samui, Koh Chang & Koh Mak but id like some insider info of people who have maybe been around that time!

I was in BKK in April and most days were cloudy :-(

as you know june is start of mosoon here - and since thailand is not that big there are no huge differences in weather if you are talking costal islands - i hear koh chang is the wettest of all - but anecdotal - i have no data to back it up - but then there are still stretches of days when its sunny even in middle of rainy season - it just a matter of luck - i have had rain middle of Dec sometimes....i say take your chances and go if that is the only time you can get away - life is short!!!

I've been in June several times and never saw much or any rain. Either coast should be fine. No one can guarantee, but most showers are brief and usually in mid-late afternoon. Just go and have fun.

June is a great time to enjoy gulf islands, Koh Tao, Koh Samui and Koh Phangan. Good weather and not so crowded like in august.

When come to weather in Thailand different part /regions can have different weather. In June most part northern of Thailand, west coast ( Andaman coast), east and central of Thailand you will be in the beginning of rainy season.

**In the east coast ( gulf of Thailand ) koh Samui, koh Tao and koh phangan as matti80 says you will have nice weather there. It is dry season in this side of the country. **

That said Thailand is tropicals you will have rains even in dry season as its the norm for tropicals.

Note : koh Chang, koh Mak and koh kood are in the east but these islands shares the same weather patterns as west coast. So in June its beginning of rainy season.

The lesser risk would be the gulf coast, we're always in Thailand May/beginning of June and have had good weather on both coasts but the rain on the andaman coast tends to come in the afternoon whereas it's just a quick thunderstorm in the evening on the gulf coast.
