hi again Mel,

arghh, a demanding daughter, really hope you'll be able to relax, and I think you might be right, that by not moving too much around it'll be easier. I've been extremely lucky with my son I think, he's always been a gem when travelling - at home as well actually, still crossing my fingers, he's almost 17 now and so far no sign of "teenager syndrome" ;)

Never been to Samui, but from what I've heard it's very "overdeveloped" by now, but hey, I'm mainly after a week of relaxation, as much sun as possible and lots of tranquility, don't need discos and karakoke bars, would much prefer small local restaurants - might be completely impossible at Samui, don't know.

Would be fun meeting up for a coffee, will certainly pm you if I decide to go to Khao Sok, which I think I'll do if I decide on Samui. If I decide on Samet I'll probably go to Kanchanaburi or maybe Sukothai or??????

Weather update for Chiang Mai
5:20 PM May 16, 2007

Weather in Chiang Mai is beautiful. Right now 89 degrees F. and sunny skies. Had to go to immigrations this morning and it was sooo nice I drove my motorbike to Wat Doi Suthep. The view was spectacular as I could see Chiang Mai valley and all the surrounding mountains in every direction, Chiang Dao to the north, Past Sankamphaeng to the east and Lampang to the south. Everything is nice and green with lots of water at the falls. The areas along the moat in the city are decorated with beautiful blooming flowers and the lawns nice and green. Maybe some rain tonight but if it rains just late at night as it should it's perfect.

Great time to be in Chiang Mai
Randy and Ning

Hi Randi and Ning,

Thanks for the update on Chiang Mai weather. Chiang Mai or Chiang Rai are a couple of other options I have for spending a couple of days next week, so maybe that's a possibility as well. Have you got any recommendations for a nice and quiet hotel to stay in Chiang Mai? Price range: max 2500 baht - and preferably less - but want to stay in a nice, clean place this time ;)

Never been to Samui, but from what I've heard it's very "overdeveloped" by now, but hey, I'm mainly after a week of relaxation, as much sun as possible and lots of tranquility, don't need discos and karakoke bars, would much prefer small local restaurants - might be completely impossible at Samui, don't know.

Not impossible, if u stay on Hat Bo Phut beach, on Koh Samui.
It is totally quiet and peaceful there, unless they are doing the building work nearby, that they seem to be doing everywhere on the island.

Thanks Mel, am checking Hat Bo Phut beach right now. Think I've decided - more or less - on Koh Samui. So will probably spend a couple of days in Khao Sok, though I got a mail back from Khao Sok Riverside Cottages today, saying that it's raining almost the whole day at this time. So don't say they're trying to make it into a rose garden LOL, Still I think Khao Sok would be great, so might be doing just that. Will pm you, Mel, if I do decide on khao Sok, would be fun meeting for a cup of coffee or whatever

At least the nature in Khao Sok should be good, Sole.
I hope that Cyclone is now on its way out.
It seems idiot, that we are leaving sunny Summertime in Germany, to put ourselves in the path of a cyclone.

Has the cyclone moved on yet, Allthai?:)

yup, Mel, noone can accuse us of going away for the nice weather LOL

In Denmark it's great as well right now, I've been out for lunch today, sat in the sun, so already got a bit of a tan - some rain though coming our way as well, from what I see on the weather forecasts. But still a lot warmer in Thailand, so I guess we'll "survive"

Somebody just emailed me the following weather report. Incredible!!!!

I just read that over the weekend Thailand (and other countries) was hit by some very high waves, which were caused by the strong wind of the monsoon, along with a freak lining up of the sun and the moon. In Phuket (and 'other' beaches, they didn't say which other ones) it's not allowed to swim at the moment. According to the newspaper there was no damage in Thailand. Maybe you can find out on TP or elsewhere if all is indeed well in Kho (I forget the name) where you are going.
