Phuket or Koh Samui or Krabi in May?

Trying to book our May Honeymoon and cannot decide where to go. We are sure we want to go to Chiang Mai and don't know where else to go. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

We've done all three destinations in May and had good weather at all.

Its the start of the Monsoon season in Phuket & Krabi and the end of it in Samui.

I would choose Koh Samui in May as a much better chance of good weather. It is the tropics though so all bets can be off.

We've been to all 3 in May and Samui is the best option with sunny weather during the day and a quick thunderstorm in the evening.

May is dodgy for all areas as it is the end of the rainy season on Koh Samui and the beginning of the rainy season on Phuket. April/May are traditionally Phuket's hottest months.

Either way you can still have a great holiday if it rains. In between rain showers the days are hot and humid.
