Weather and restaurants for first week in May

Could someone please advice what we can expect the weather to be like for the first week in May?

And also, do local beach restaurants open in May or do they close for the off-season?

We have just returned from Khoa Lak this week. Whilst we had a fantastic time, if there was one downside it was the heat. Even the locals were saying it was unseasonally hot. The water at the beach was at times nearly too hot. Whilst I would go back tromorrow there was plenty of talk of 'low season' & shops closing next week. Staff at shops were going home (to Burma) & one restuarant we ate at in Khoa Lak town was about to close. The conditions at the beaches seemed to change daily as 'low season' got closer. Please don't take this as a negative it is a fantastic place & we only had one afternoon storm. As I said I would go back in a flash.

Have fun!!

Most of the beach restaurants will close in May, how soon depending on wetaher conditions and numbers of customers. There are restaurants on and overlooking Bang Niang Beach up from the Ramada that will remain open though.

May will be hot.

Most restaurants on the main roads stay open until June, some even all year. But the ones directly on the beach will soon close. Also, all resort restaurants will stay open.
