Best Time to visit Krabi

The climate of Krabi Province is tropical and therefore warm throughout the year. On the other hand, Krabi is also affected by the monsoon winds that bring about seasonal changes.

There are two very hot periods of weather on Krabi, the first is between April and May when the average temperatures ranges from 27 to 36 degrees Celsius with occasional tropical thunderstorm bringing relief from the heat.

It is also very hot between September and October, but the frequent rainfall has a wonderful cooling effect.

In May, at the peak of the southwest monsoon, it rains on an average of 25 days during the month, making it to one of the most humid months of the year. Rainy days are interspersed with sunny days during this period and the rain generally comes in tropical downpours of an hour or so throughout the day mixed with periods of sunshine.

November to March is the most popular time for tourists to visit Krabi. It is when the northeast monsoon brings beautiful blue skies and predominantly sunny weather with an average temperature of 24 to 32 degrees Celsius. Visitors are advised to make early reservations (maybe a year in advance) for accommodations during this period of time because of the popularity of the Krabi and its attractions.

Weather-wise, the ideal time to visit Krabi is in late January and February, when you will enjoy nearly perfect conditions: calm, glassy seas; clear blue skies; moderate temperatures; and only a tiny chance of shower burst. By coming at this time, you also avoid the peak season hotel supplements charged around Christmas and New Year.

This time is, naturally, extremely busy here, so you may find popular hotels and beaches full. Some people prefer to visit Krabi in the 'rainy' season, despite the risk of showers, as it is cooler, cheaper and much less crowded - it is even possible to have a whole island to yourself!

Booking a holiday in May-October remains, however, a gamble: while the typical rainy season pattern is of sunny days punctuated by short, heavy afternoon showers, you could just as easily end up with ten days of straight rain - or sun!

MAY - October in Krabi sees the monsoon winds change direction, bringing the cooler temperatures and showers associated with the rainy season. The droves of tourists and package holiday-makers disappear, leaving an altogether more relaxed atmosphere - and one in which residents generally have more time for visitors (and for afternoon naps!).

Those fortunate enough to travel now will thus see a different side to the province. Streets are quieter, beaches and islands semi-deserted; and walking through the forest you will hear the sounds of nature, rather than the tour group up ahead.

Of course there is a reason for the existence of this so-called "low" season: the weather. But, while daily sunshine cannot be guaranteed, it does not rain all the time, either. The typical pattern (if one exists) is of sun interspersed with brief, often very heavy showers, although it is also possible to have a very long spell of glorious, dry weather - or a week of straight rain.

There are some advantages that come with this weather, which is why TAT (Tourism Authority of Thailand) is now promoting this time as the 'green' season. The interior landscape really comes to life after the long, hot dry spell, meaning wildlife on jungle and kayak trips will be abundant. Ditto for diving, although visibility does vary considerably. When the sun is shining, you'll have the beaches and islands almost to yourself.

Downpours are, however, as befits the tropical climate, heavy and unpredictable and you may well find yourself getting soaked once or twice - it's a good idea to bring a poncho or rainjacket with you, as well as a light jacket or non-woolly sweater for the cooler evenings.

As most of Krabi’s attractions are outdoors, rain obviously limits what you can do. In addition, rough sea conditions can occasionally prevent access to some outlying islands - places such as Ko Rok are completely closed during the off-season. However, activities such as temple visits, kayaking, jungle trekking and diving, as mentioned above, can be considered all-weather.
