We are flying into Bangkok on 13th June for 3 weeks and travelling to the islands in the South, I know its meant to be 'rainy season' but to what extent is the weather bad? is it usually still ok for sitting on the beach and relaxing etc?

Any help would be great :)

In Thailand rainy season is not a whole day thing. It'll rain heavy for awhile and stop then you can expect the sun again. Last year it usually rained at night so that was a good thing. -snip-
cheers..

Even during the rainy season you will always have enough sunlight to get a tan or sunburn. Much more than an hour out in the bright sun on a beach and you will probably be sunburned anyway!

Rain isn't all bad, if it rains you can simply catch a movie, take in a bar or restaurant or catch up on some reading or sleep time.

Pick up a cheap umbrella and carry that with you in your day bag when you walk around. Wear shoes that if they got wet you wouldn't have to worry about them.

Some minor flooding when the drains in the streets can't handle the downfall or there is some debris blocking them. Usually any flooding subsides shortly after the rain stops. Don't walk through flooded water if you have open cuts or scratches on your feet to avoid infections. (Usually when a road floods the water may also include sewage and other "dirty" stuff in the water.)
