Looking for a long haul destination for July that’s hot and mainly dry please. Struggling to find anywhere. Any one know if koh samui is hot and mainly dry? Also would like long sunny days.

It sounds from reading your other post that you want destinations that British Airways fly to. In which case I suggest you look on their website to begin figuring out your options.

My first thoughts were Mexico and the Caribbean.

Wikipedia carries average temperatures and rainfall charts in its Climate section of articles - that's a good way to check how hot and sunny somewhere is.

As on the other thread:

Mexico, Cuba, Domenican Republic, Bermuda.....plus Seychelles, safari in Africa etc.

Thailand's rainy season is from June > October.

If you want to check monthly climate averages (max & min temps, hours of sun, rainfall etc) I suggest you use

http://www.holiday-weather.com

It gives easy-to-read data charts for (as the name suggests) for popular countries (and individual locations) which are popular with holidaymakers.

Since you mention Thailand keep in mind that tourists still visit every day of the year including the mild season, the hot season and the wet season. Some tourists prefer to visit during the off season to save money on hotels.

Use your computer and do a Google search for Koh Samui. Is it necessary to have sunshine every minute of the day? You can't stay out in the sun all day long unless you don't care if your exposed skin looks decades older than the covered areas.

Tourists do visit Bangkok, Hua Hin, Chiang Mai and even Phuket during the rainy season. The rain does not usually fall continuously. Some days no rain or very little rain. Usually enough time to see and do the things you want and then relax in a bar or restaurant or shop in a mall until the rain ends.

If you are young, in school or just out of school, Google up Koh Phangan. Lots of younger tourists head there for Full Moon Parties.

A little shower from time to time is just an excuse to party inside!

If you do visit Thailand try to reserve a few days for Bangkok. Bangkok is even cheaper than most beach areas. Also Bangkok has summer time weather too. If it rains step in a mall - you know, do something inside.

Up to you!

Unless you mention where you're based, it's difficult to know where is a 'Long Haul' for you...

From another recent thread, the OP is based in the UK.

I suggest you to take a trip to Central Region of Vietnam especially Hoi An, Phan Thiet (Where's a lot of sand dunes).
