“Look at the rain long enough, with no thoughts in your head, and you gradually feel your body falling loose, shaking free of the world of reality. Rain has the power to hypnotize” – Haruki Murakami, from the book South of the Border, West of the Sun
The ‘green season’ is that time of the year where most rainfall usually occurs. It is also a word coined by tourists used to describe a season that is slightly cooler, breezier with rains, and when the forests are noticeably at its lushest state.
To be honest, people tend to focus on the usual drawbacks of travelling to Koh Samui, Thailand on during the green season. This way of travelling should change altogether as we’ll help you realise the benefits of travelling to Thailand during the green season.
Deciding to travel during the green season guarantees cheaper offers on almost everything. Think of lower fares, better hotel rates, and more. Several hotels may even offer a family promo for a longer stay. Some offers or promotions may be even unbelievably low, but it does not mean that the fun and adventure is limited. Looking at a more positive note, it simply means more options to choose from!
We like to look at the positive side of things, so instead of just ‘green season’ – tourists who visit Thailand during this time is also in for the best of ‘lush season’. During this period, guests are treated to the refreshing sight of the hills, the parks, and even the garden beside your villa. Rain gives an added picturesque – sort of dreamy – effect to nature.
There is this liberating experience doing activities under the rain. It makes you feel more attuned to what you are doing while embracing the cool sensation of water trickling down. There are definitely activities that are twice fun done during the green season such as visiting the majestic waterfalls. Besides, those who don’t like sweating will enjoy the relief the cold weather brings in.
Despite being the rainy season, Koh Samui doesn’t experience heavy rains compared to other Asian countries. If it is raining around the place expect that it will only last for a few minutes to a few hours and not a whole day! Another good news is that there aren’t that many strong rains either.
Thailand is known to be very hospitable to tourists. And the high quality of their service and work is a testament to it. It is just that during the off-peak season there will be fewer tourists and a low volume of guests, which would mean better and memorable service will be expected throughout the stay in Thailand.
Don’t know what to do during the off-peak season? Well, there is no limit to the imagination when it comes to having fun. Why not challenge oneself to swim in the fresh waters while enjoying the rainfall or gear up and trek into the jungles of Thailand? Interestingly during these months, there are several events lined up for tourists to attend, one of them is the EDM festival. Guests can dance to the music of well-known international and favourite local artists while they showcase their music.
Explore Koh Samui
Since there are fewer people visiting during the green season, this is the best time to maximise exploring Koh Samui. Deeply immerse oneself in Thai local culture without the worry of not having enough time. Avoid the hassle of queuing up for activities or even dining in local restaurants.
There is definitely a beauty to discovery places during the rainy season Don’t let the rain hamper your quest for a Eudaimonia experience.
