Weather advice please - May-June

I've got the option of spending a weeks holiday in Khao Lak anytime from 1st May through to the end of June but looking at the other forum postings, its not clear which month would be best to visit (avoiding the most rain where possible!). Can anyone advise whether it would be best to go at the start of the 'green' season or whether June would be a better bet? Thanks

I'm not sure that it will be very much different. Certainly the temperature will still be high, it will be humid, there will be thunderstorms, the ocean will be rough but it will be quiety, peaceful and you will see KL in a very different light than in the Dry Season. On balance having stayed in May I would favour that month.

The beach restaurants on Pak Weeb Beach near the Le Meridien and the Sarojin tend to close at the beginning of May but there are some on the beach at Bang Niang Beach which remain open and most of the ones overrlooking the beach there or on the road leadomg to the highway and then in the main township of Bang La On remain open as do bars and shops.
