It depends on what you count as a “great time.” If by “great” you mean good weather, then January is a wonderful time to explore the island. In January, the air is cool and this is complemented by the warm waters of the sea. It’s the perfect time of year to try water sports and other fun activities like snorkeling and swimming. 

If you’re not a fan of huge crowds, you might want to avoid visiting Koh Samui in January because tourists from countries experiencing winter in January are likely to flock to the island to enjoy a slice of tropical paradise. But hey, if you don’t mind enjoying the island will more people than usual, then you’ll love visiting Koh Samui in January! More people means more parties, a livelier island vibe in beaches like Chaweng, and lots of entertainment. 

It’s always a great time to visit Koh Samui, especially if you know you’re staying at the best villas in the island. Horizon Homes, a property development expert in Koh Samui, can help you find the right villa when you visit in January or any other time of the year.
