I was thinking about going to Thailand in September (Khao Lak). I have never been and after a bit of reading it looks like that September is the rainy season. Is it just small amount of rain or are we talking about non-stop rain? Also it appears that Surin Islands and Similan islands are not accessible during September.
I am not a diver or snorkel. I prefer to see the land and culture. Those islands look spectacular and I would like to visit them but just to chill at the beach kind of thing. I am not a good swimmer.
I have the option of postponing my trip till February, but obviously accommodation prices get high.
Do you think it's best to postpone? is it going to be relatively expensive to visit Surin and Similan islands in February? Your input and advice would be very much appreciated.
