I'm travelling out to thailand this thursday for a month jaunt. I'm trying to find out the current weather conditions, in particular the diving visibility and which islands/boat routes are open.
It sounds like the monsoon came early was is a bit of shame I was looking forward to checking out the diving in the Andaman (?) Sea (Similan Islands, Hin Duang/Muang below Phi Phi etc). After that we'll head to the Gulf to Ko Tao.
Does anyone know the current weather and diving conditions/availability? whether the weather will improve? ways to find out which boat routes are open? check current conditions on the web?
lastly without meaning to sound too much of a numpty I've never experienced the monsoon i full effect first hand - in your experience, what does it mean? I heard 2 hours of rain then sunshine is normal.
Thanks very muchly!
