How's the weather in Khao Lak right now?

Every weather report forecasts monumental levels of rain...is that the case? I will be there in one week and getting worried! Is it really raining all day every day?

At the moment it is raining most days but still hot but humid, the usual for this time of year. See for yourself through the WebCam, link posted in the Sticky, the first topic in the Forum list. khaolaklanddiscovery.com/cam/Khao-Lak-Land-D…

Any forecast during the Wet Season (to November) will show rain/thunderstorms as that is the general pattern, although there are usually periods of sunshine too AND you can and will get burned through the clouds so take care and still apply sunscreen.

I'm sitting in the Laguna Resort right now its 10am in the morning and overcast. We have been here 4 days and have had 20 minutes of rain in total and that was happy hour time yesterday. There is a southerly breeze about 30 degrees c and 90percent humidity.

Everythings great except our week is coming to an end.... Well almost we have another week at Mom Tris Villa in Kata.

We are in Khao Lak now, arrived on the 4th, so far the weather has been a mixture of sun, hazy sun, overcast and very occasional rain (mainly at night) warm and very pleasant, hardly been in direct sun since arrived but have a good tan already with still a week to.

Have a great time

Howdy second day here in Khao Lak it is 14/10. It rained yesterday afternoon which was quite heavy and continued to rain throughout the night, overcast at the moment looks like it might stay clear for awhile so gives you an opportunity to walk around and do things. Didnt venture out at night time too wet.

Cheers

Yeah I arrived yesterday afternoon (Wednesday) to torrential rain which lasted all evening and throughout the night...sitting in the room at 1pm Thursday with more torrential rain outside...very concerned about the weather and am considering flying somewhere else with guaranteed sunshine!

Dubai? Somewhere like that!

Unfortunately there doesn't seem to be much to do but sit inside, we are staying at the Sarojin and it seems very isolated! (we knew this when we booked, but wasn't planning on non-stop rain!)

Are there any beach bars/restaurants win walking distance firm the Sarojin...came on to beach from the hotel and turned left this morning but didn't seem that there was anything there, i was hoping to find the 3 beach restaurants i had read about on trip advisor! Maybe they are shut due to bad weather?

Turn immediately right and they are there. The centre one Ao Thong Beach Restaurant and Bungalows is definitely open so the owner says, when we chatted on Facebook the other day. Also, if you walk past these and fancy a nice walk (weather permitting, if you can get around the headland at the end, you will come to Le Meridien. Go past there and about 400 metres you will come to Ma Ma/Mr.Kek's which is open and Mr. Lek will take you back to the Sarojin and organise any tours that are available for you.

The shuttle from the Sarojin will take you into Bang La On where there are plenty of restaurants open.

Howdy update on weather in Khao Lak - today was good sun shining for most of the day came out when we woke about 6.30am and had a few showers from about 8.00 until 9.30 then has been sunny for most of the day so looks like it might be changing to sunshine. Very pleasant if it stays like this. Fingers crossed. Cheers
