Koh Samui in March: Weather, What to Expect and 13 March FAQs

Actually, there’s not much difference – March is the centre of Phuket’s hot season (March 11 is its average hottest day of the year, whereas Koh Samui’s is mid-April). Need something to sway your vote? Measured by average cloud cover, March 16 is Koh Samui’s sunniest day of the year! Honestly? Don’t over-think it: both are lovely and weather never abides by averages anyway.

6. Is Koh Samui busy in March?

This year, probably less than other in years when Easter falls in March, as families love Samui as a school holiday destination.

7. What to wear on Koh Samui in March?

Koh Samui in March: Weather, What to Expect and 13 March FAQs

Hint: leave your socks at home. If you’re coming for ‘regular vacation stuff’ (eating, swimming, a little sight-seeing, repeat), then just follow the advised dress codes for what to wear in Thai beach towns and resorts. These suggestions will keep you both comfortable in the heat and earn a cultural gold medal.

Note that, for men, a light-weight pair of trousers/pants are more appropriate for dinner at nice restaurants. It’s hot though, so choose the lightest option you can find (learn which fabrics are best to wear in Thailand’s heat). If you have exploratory intentions, pack protective clothing for excursions into ‘nature’.

8. What should I pack for Koh Samui in March?

Koh Samui in March: Weather, What to Expect and 13 March FAQs

It’s Samui’s sunniest month of the year, folks – double up on your sunscreen (these are my favourite non-toxic options for Thailand), and definitely pack a wide-brimmed sun-hat. If you burn easily (or are travelling to Samui with children), also consider some UPF-protective clothing like swim shirts/rash-guards, etc (suggestions here).

10. Koh Samui events in March?

Koh Samui in March: Weather, What to Expect and 13 March FAQs

Island events in March 2019 include the Koh Samui Midnight Run on March 24th – a popular charity fun-run through Samui’s busiest beach town, Chaweng. Mostly, though, it’s thirty-one days of picture-perfect skies and cold Singha beers.

12. What are the beaches like on Koh Samui in March?

Koh Samui in March: Weather, What to Expect and 13 March FAQs

While The Koh Samui Guide explains the pros and cons of each beach, plus the different sand you can expect, you’ll generally find that hotels groom their beachfront. (The more expensive the hotel, the more obsessively the beach is tended. At Four Seasons Resort, for example, I wouldn’t be surprised if it’s sieved four times daily). In general, excepting big storms and rainy season (Oct-Dec), Koh Samui’s beaches are beautiful.

If you’d like to leave Samui’s beaches in even better condition when you leave, consider joining a weekly Trash Hero Samui clean-up party. It’s a great way to meet and befriend Thai people outside of the tourist/service industry – with plenty of sanuk on offer.

13. What time does it get dark on Koh Samui in March?

Koh Samui in March: Weather, What to Expect and 13 March FAQs

Just shy of 7 pm (6:52 on March and April 1st). Are you a smug morning person? Dawn is at 6:13 am at the start of the month, and the roosters will be happy for your company.
