Just about to leave Singapore in a few days to travel north via KL into Thailand and it appears everywhere is a complete wash out!
We knew this time of year was a little unpredictable but had our fingers crossed. Does anybody know if we would be better lingering around the southern beaches and islands Phi Phi, Ko Tao etc rather than heading north?
Is anyone down there right now who can verify what the weathers like?
Try Ko Samet? Not sure of the current weather, but it's supposed to have the least rainfall per year in Thailand.

I think that Koh Tao is not good idea for October.
When I stayed in Koh Tao local staff said that some dive shops closed in October because "weather is not good" (they mean: strong wind, big waves, rain).
May be better go to Koh Samet or Koh Chang?
I'm in Chiang Mai at the moment and the weather is gorgeous. Monsoon is over here it seems. Arrived from the south 4 days ago where it was torrential rain every day and very humid. Was in Sumui, Pha Ngan 2 weeks ago and it was pretty rainy there too and apparently still is. Still sunny intervals, but few and far between...
