Krabi Weather Forecasts

When is the best time to visit Krabi?

Krabi weather is the key to a successful holiday in this beautiful province of southern Thailand. The point is that most of vacationers’ activities occur outdoor. Whether you are planning an island-hopping trip, or planning to visit some of the hinterland attractions, the weather in Krabi will make your day - or not. This depends on the season and on the quirks of climate. Although note that online weather forecasts are often on the pessimistic side. A whole week with the thunderstorm icon doesn't mean it will rain all day!

Krabi has a similar climate to Phuket, with average temperatures around 75°F to 89°F (24°C to 32°C) year round. The wettest months are September and October. The area does not suffer from marked weather swings. Pretty much any time of year is good to visit, although the best time to visit Krabi is from November to March.

Krabi Weather - When is The Best Time to Visit Krabi?

The best time to visit Krabi is in high season, from November to March. The weather is great, temperatures average 28°C and cool breezes keep things comfortable. However, please note that a few rainy days may occur in November and March.

Hot Season

The hottest time in Krabi is April - May, with temperatures ranging from 80°F to 95°F (27°C up to 36°C). There are frequent short heavy thundery showers. They offer a welcome relief from the high temperatures and humidity.

The Thai New Year (Songkran) occurs on April 13th and everyone sprinkles (or throws) cool water on each other.

Locals enjoy June, July and August, since the weather is usually fine and favourite haunts remain uncrowded. The usual pattern is brief with heavy showers and plenty of sunshine between downpours. Everything is a little less expensive at this time of year, as well. Temperatures range between 70°F and 90°F (20ºC to 33°C).

Monsoon/Low/Wet Season

The monsoon/low/wet season lasts from June to October in Krabi. Rain coats and umbrellas are mandatory during September and October, the wettest months of the year. One consolation is that hotel rates are really on the low side; and the beaches, outdoor restaurants and streets are uncrowded. This makes Krabi even more relaxing.

On the bright side, even at this time of year you still can expect long intervals of sunshine between two showers. And anyway, plenty of low season activities are still available in Krabi during the monsoon season.
