    Ko Samui Weather for July 2022

    What's The Weather Like In Ko Samui In July

    Temperature

    The second half of the year kicks off in July. However, in the tropical Island of Ko Samui, the year-long tourist season is continuing as usual. Tourists planning to visit Ko Samui in July will be welcomed by hot and wet weather. The average temperature in July is 29°C. Only May is warmer. Average daily high temperatures range around 32°C, while the average daily lows are about 25°C.

    These average temperatures are perfectly constant throughout the month and are also fairly constant all year round. The heat may be unbearable though, especially around noon. Therefore, tourists are advised to go sightseeing in the mornings and evenings and to stay in the shade in the afternoon. They can, of course, also seek refuge in the warm waters of the Gulf of Thailand.

    Sea Temperature

    The sea has an average temperature of a bath-like 28°C in July; the sea temperature doesn't change much throughout the year.

    Sunshine Hours

    July also has essentially constant day lengths. July 1 is the longest day of the month with 12.40 daylights hours, while July 31 is the shortest day with 12.32 hours of daylights, a decrease of merely eight minutes in the course of the month. This is due to the resort's location near the equator.

    On average, sunshine can be enjoyed during only half of the day as an average July day has 6 hours of sunshine. This is in fact the case from May all through November. The reason for this is that the hot mini-monsoon season occurs between May and August and the actual, extremely wet, monsoon season from September to the beginning of December. This period of the year tends to be quite cloudy.

    Cloud

    And July is cloudy indeed. With an average cloud cover of more than 86%, this is almost as cloudy as it ever gets in Ko Samui. The percentage of cloud cover in the course of the month doesn't change much though, as it will stay this way to the end of November. On the other hand, July experiences very few fog days.

    With only three of those, it is the second-least foggiest month of the year. Fog tends to occur mostly in the dry season months, such as JanuaryFebruary and March. The humidity, however, is always high in a tropical destination like this. In July the average humidity ranges around 80%.

    Rain

    As said earlier, July falls within the mini-monsoon season, which is technically also still the hot season. The month receives a total of 120mm of rainfall, occurring on nine rainy days. While the number of days of precipitation has stayed the same compared to June, the total amount has increased by 20mm. Looking at the raw numbers, it can be concluded that July is the sixth-wettest month of the year, although most months that fall in the mini-monsoon season are very similar in terms of precipitation.

    The chance of rainfall doesn't change much throughout the month. The average chance on any given day is 53%, a percentage that remains constant. The two most common type of precipitation are thunderstorms and light rain. Light rain occurs on 45% of the rainy days, while thunderstorms can be expected on 44% of the days of rainfall.

    Ko Samui Hotels In July

    InterContinental Samui Baan Taling Ngam Resort

    If you want to stay at secluded Talin Ngam Beach, you may as well choose the InterContinental Samui Baan Taling Ngam Resort. This fabulous multi-award-winning five-star resort is located on a hillside a short distance from the beach and overlooks the bay. It consists of 79 luxurious guest rooms, villas and suites, set in two acres of beautifully landscaped gardens.

    Ko Samui Beaches For July

    Lipa Noi Beach

    Lipa Noi Beach is located near the main car ferry pier on the island. The beach consists of beautiful white sand and the water doesn't have any rocks or coral, which makes it a great beach for children. The sea is also quite shallow, even up to a hundred meters out. The beach is the main attraction in Lipa Noi; there isn't much else to do. This remoteness is what makes it attractive though, as is shown is the large numbers of visitors. These visitors are generally a bit older, for this is not an area that is known for its nightlife and parties. The area is in fact surrounded by coconut plantations. Entertainment is scarce, besides sunbathing and swimming.

    Taling Ngam

    Another secluded beach, even more so than Lipa Noi, is Taling Ngam. This beach is backed by dense jungle and palm trees, while across the ocean you can see the islands of Ang Thong Marine National Park. In terms of accommodation, there are some cheap bungalow options and a few resorts.

    Bars And Restaurants

    Red Snapper Restaurant & Bar

    A great place to go for dinner in Chaweng is Red Snapper Restaurant & Bar. The restaurant's theme is red, with red seat covers, napkins and flowers. Food is based on Mediterranean cuisine and is served and enjoyed in a modern décor. The walls are decorated with abstract art; there is live music; a lounge and bar, and a green outside terrace. This award-winning restaurant's wine list is among the best on the entire island.

    Emerald Irish Pub

    For evening fun and pub food you should head to the Emerald Irish Pub in Bophut. There you can enjoy live sports on big screens while enjoying a local beer or Irish favorites such as Kilkenny and Guinness. The interior reminds of Ireland, with barrels, kegs, whiskey ads and pictures of Dublin. Food includes all-day breakfasts, bangers 'n' mash, cottage pie and chili con carne. The views from the outside terrace are phenomenal and include the fishing boats of Fisherman's Village and Ko Phangan in the distance. The Emerald also has apartments and offers boat trips and car rentals.

    Things To Do In Ko Samui In July

    SITCA

    Thai food is world-famous and a great way to learn more about it by taking a cooking class. The best place to do this is SITCA, or the Samui Institute of Thai Culinary Arts. The chefs are world-class and have been featured on the BBC and in Lonely Planet, Frommer's and Rough Guide. Classes are open to everyone; it doesn't matter if you're a total beginner or a near professional. The Thai cooking classes take place in modern spacious facilities. Everyone has their own burner and personal cooking equipment and tools. You also get a booklet with information and in which you can make notes.

    Cooking Class

    A cooking class is suggested if you want to learn more about Thai food or if you want to improve your cooking skills. All food and ingredients are bought at the local markets each morning. There are two three-hour classes every day. They all start with a lesson on how to make a famous Thai curry paste, followed by a menu of three dishes. Menus change every day of the week, from Monday through Saturday, adding up to twelve different menus per week. In addition to cooking food, you will also enjoy the meal together afterwards, in their dining room. Each cook is allowed to invite one guest

    Ladyboy Cabaret Show

    A completely different thing to do although not for everyone is attending a ladyboy cabaret show. This is definitely not an activity that appeals to all visitors, but if you're looking for a real Thai experience, a ladyboy show is what you're looking for. Ladyboys are an accepted part of Thai society and public life. Ladyboys are considered the third sex in Thailand, live everyday lives and work at hotels, shops or restaurants. You will absolutely encounter ladyboys while staying on Ko Samui, so it's best to keep an open mind and, more so, to see what it's all about.

    Thailand's katoey (as they are called) are world-famous because they are so feminine and it is often hard to tell that they are in fact men. A ladyboy cabaret consists of lots of make-up, songs, elaborate costumes and dance. Most of the shows take place at Chaweng Beach Road in Chaweng, the main entertainment centre of the island. It's kind of like a regular Moulin Rouge performance, with the only difference that the women performing are actually men.
