- its not the best weather season in thailand right now, but it's really mostly just fine.
- thailand is as safe as you want it to be. nice people. no violence. you are safe as long as you avoid the really seedy areas in bangkok.
- on samui, you can be in tourism hell
(chaweng), remote beaches (north), inbetween (south lamai), or meditation retreat. all within an hour's driv...nd sourroundings - is beautiful and a good place to go if weather in the south is really bad. there is tons of stuff to do there too.
if you want to go to a beach and lie in the sun and nothing else, and have little time, i would recommend going some other time (nov-apr). if that's not important - thailand is amazing, cheap, beautiful, has the best food in the world - unbelievable, really.
