Here comes the rain!

Quite often, on Koh Samui ,people complain that it is too hot to do anything and quite often it is. Of course the other end of the scale here is when it rains, and as we all know when it rains it certainly does rain. Too much rain is just as activity prohibitive as too much sun but there are a few things you can do when it’s pouring down. Colder days are a great time to have a cook up. There is nothing better than having a freezer full of homemade, ready meals and cooking in bulk is a great way to save money on western food.. is a great rescores for finding easily freezable recipes.

If you want to learn some new cooking skills, rainy days are a great time to take a Thai cooking course. ‘Sitca Samui’ offer some great one day, one and two week courses (77 413172). ‘Some Like it Hot’ in Bophut do some super half day courses. (0878939161). Rainy days are also a great time to get back into shape and of course it is cool enough to get yourself into the gym. There are several gyms in Samui. World Gym in the tesco cinemaChaweng ring road is very popular as is Hippo Gym in Maenam. If you feel like something less stressful then why not go bowling. There is an excellent bowling alley at Tesco Lotus Chaweng. This is a great and very economical way of wiling away the hours. Major Bowl has some amazing deals and serves soft drinks and beers, (that can be bought by the tower) and food. Tesco also has a modern and comfortable cinema with a choice of three screens showing both Thai and Western Movies. There is a choice of seating including the ‘VIP” nest that is more like a lounge sofa and well worth the extra charge.

When the rain is set in for a few weeks why not make life in Thailand a lot easier by learning the lingo. ‘Thai Solutions’, near to Big C, offer some fantastic short and long courses. Call 077 256115 for more information. Cool ,wet ,days are also a great opportunity to do a spot of D.I.Y or have a spring clean. D.I.Y goods can be found at’ Homepro at the back of Tesco and at ‘HomeMart in Maenam. If you are having a spring clean why not sell your unwanted goods on the Facebook Car Boot Sale and enjoy the feel good factor by donating 15% of your profit to the special needs school in Bangrak. If none of this takes your fancy then head off to one of the many spas on Koh Samui that offer a myriad of luxurious ways to get through a wet day such as skin care, health foods, massage and yoga.
