08/Apr/11 Global Warming…??
Almost all Thailand was affected by bad weather conditions during the last week of March, with heavy rain and high seas, a most unusual weather episode for that time of the year… proving to us once again that the weather patterns are changing - it is raining when it should be dry…and it is dry when it should be wet! This leads us to remind you that we will soon be entering the “Green Off Season”, which normally lasts from May to October. There are very good advantages for holidaying here in the “off” season and, more and more, people are selecting to visit Thailand at that time. This is especially true for those who wish to avoid the intense heat and burning sun and those who like a more peaceful and leisurely holiday without having to battle crowds of fellow tourists. If you do elect to visit us during the “green” season, and we encourage you to do so, we have enough activities to keep you occupied indoors if it is raining and outdoors when conditions allow. Indoor activities include taking our ever popular Thai cooking lessons, experiencing the ultimate in rejuvenation at our spa, working-out in our gym and sports complex, borrowing reading materials, DVDs or games from the library, sending e-mails, etc.…and nobody will object to you having a peaceful nap with the soothing sound of rain dancing on the roof. Outdoor activities include, playing tennis, body-surfing in the sea, swimming in the warm waters of our pools, visiting a nearby national marine park, elephant trekking, touring the island and visiting the markets. The beach is always popular with joggers, strollers and beachcombers. Kantiang , where the resort is located, is sheltered allowing swimming almost all year around; in fact we probably raise the red swim warning flag only about 20 times throughout the green season.
For photographers this is also a good time to take photographs of seascapes, brilliant sunsets, wonderful cloud effects, lush green flora, etc…and rest assured also that the mid-day temperature rarely goes below the 30 degrees Celsius!!
