Samui is probably your best option for August....other area's like Phuket are in monsoon season now

I'm just back from Koh Samui and it rained every day bar one. Still very hot and humid but when it rained it rained heavy! It is monsoon season now..

Well actually it`s not monsoon period for Samui.It is in fact monsoon period for the Andaman coast side but not the Gulf side.

I would be guessing the rain that you had was thunderstorms that can come in quickly & leave just as quick but drop plenty whilst they are around.Being a hot tropical climate this isn`t unusual especially.

Samui has been relatively dry in recent times so this rain would be more than welcome.

I am just back from a ten day stay in samui (3rdaug-13th). The weather was generally very fine and hot in the mornings, but in afternoons (around 3pm) it would cloud over and rain quite heavily. Some days it would only rain for an hour or two, others it went on all night. It was also very humid some days. Overall I would say the weather on samui was better than in hua hin when we visited in 2006. There it was very cloudy every day with very little sun but much less rain than samui.
