You'll get some rain at that time in Pattaya but not enough to be much of a problem.

Been to both in June, think Pattaya edges it for the weather for me. There again Pattaya edges it for me anyway.

We went to Samui last June - weather was good but had a few days overcast but not too much rain, except for the couple of days we went to Phangan where the heavens opened.

Samui was very quiet but suppose it depends what kind of holiday you want.

just looking for a relaxed holiday.

I have been quoted cheaper holiday in pattaya then samui so was wondering will this be due to the weather, and also will the rain be constant or just for an hour or so.

You've probably been quoted a better price for Pattaya as there's far more hotels competing for your custom, don't think it will have anything to do with the weather.

I have been to Pattaya in various months in the year and have always have had good weather , I have only been to Samui in June and September both have been good

TBH I can't think of anytime in Thailand when I haven't had that occasional downpour.... there again a bar has a roof on !!!!!

I usually go Jan, Feb, however the first time we went was end of June and I must say it was a disapointment. Cloudy and overcast with frequent downpours. If I am going to travel 14hrs on a plane i dont want that sort of weather. Mind you only been back 3 weeks and we had rain a few times which is not typical.

My advice go somewhere else,as May-October the weather is typically Hot and Wet . I would never go again during this period

Jan and Feb is Thailand is high season, far drier time of year.

June can have rain and the amount can differ from year to year and certainly from place to place. Based on averages over a 30 year period by the Thailand Meteorological Department in June average mm of rain:

Pattaya : 79

Hua Hin : 73

Koh Samui area : 92

Phuket area: 285

So compared with other beach areas Pattaya is a good choice as far as weather goes. Pattaya and Koh Samui are very different. Pattaya is a city with beaches, attractions, although quieter areas it is a mainland lively city areas. Pattaya is also very cheap to get to from Bangkok.

Koh Samui is a tropical island. beach areas range from busy and touristy to quiet and relaxing.

You could also include some nights on Koh Samet which is a relaxing island and easy to get to from Pattaya, so you can mix busy with some quiet island relaxing days.

If you have 2 weeks why not 1 week in each.

I'd say you are more likely to get more sun in Pattaya.

They are two very different places, personally i prefer Samui , but i also like Pattaya.

Monica can you recoomend anywhere on Koh samet with a pool and satellite tv?
