Preparing for the Koh Samui Sun
You might not realize that Koh Samui is right near the equator. That means it is a bit closer to the sun than the rest of the world. Now, while you can hop in the cool waters every now and then to cool off, that’s not always an option, and you want to be prepared for the powerful sunshine on this sunny island.
One of the best pieces of advice we can give you is to try to stay indoors during midday. From around 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., the sun is incredibly hot, and if you aren’t used to such weather, it can leave you with a bad case of sunburn or dehydration. We suggest trying to plan any indoor activities for this time.
You can protect yourself a few different ways. Sunscreen, light, loose clothes and a sun hat are the best things to wear to keep your body safe from the sun’s rays. Make sure your sunscreen has the appropriate SPF rating to keep you protected. You also want to ensure that if you are swimming that your sunscreen is waterproof so you will still enjoy its protection.
You also want to drink plenty of water. Always have a bottle with you.
