monday 17 hot & sunny with a 20 minute rain shower

mon.24 hot & sunny

tue.25 cloudy & sunny spells

wed. 26 cloudy & humid

thu. 27 hot cloudy & sunny spells

fri. 28 hot & sunny then returned home to england.

as you can see far from the doom mongers who keep saying october is a bad month rain and more rain with over a dozen trips to thailand all in october we have never found it to be so bad not to return.

yes i am well aware of the floods and my heart and thoughts go out to them all

For sure it is not one of the best, the monsoon this year left early.

I'll be happy to have at least a nice november, months to avoid in Samui.

Last year it was still raining in Vietnam end of december, so the weather is getting really unpredictable.

hi procol,stayed at the kantary this year in one of their villas and for the money could not really fault it.

beyond resort khao lak still had a lot of work going on and would be surprised if it opened this side of new year.

the wyndham ? is this the one further along pakweep beach past beyond resort ,if so it is barely out of the ground.

The Wyndham Resort is the former South Sea Island Resort, located next to the Apsaras Resort at Cape Pakarang. Since it is or should be the completion of a nearly completed almost new resort, I would have thought the scheduled completion date of late 2011 should be achievable.

The other new resort at the far end of Pak Weeb Beach near to Bang Sak Beach is a(nother) Phuket based developer.

Thanks NB1

how are the new buildings progressing at the kantary

yes the wyndham is where the south sea grand was,

but there is no noise anywhere on when / if it is going to be ready this year

which may mean unlikely..

hope to and look forward to an arandora on the spot report in due course

Lol Alan, I am counting too but a week longer to wait !!

Your post made me think of something, I have booked a taxi through Boss as you know. Do I need to send a reminder to him or do you think that is unnecessary. Thought I would just ask seeing as you have used the company many times I presume.
