5 Best Things to Do When It Rains in Krabi

Rainy Day Activities in Krabi

This list of the 5 best things to do when it rains in Krabi will be particularly helpful to all those who come to this quaint province of southern Thailand between April and November, during the monsoon season. It’s also worth taking a look at if you are visiting in the high season, though, as it includes some interesting activities (and you can never be sure with Thailand’s weather).

Krabi is still a rural province with little infrastructures, and the capital city of Krabi Town remains a charming provincial municipality which has yet to fully enter the age of the huge shopping malls and other large roofed establishments. As most of the attractions and activities available in Krabi are located outside, a rainy day may be very demoralising. However, there are still a few things that you could do on wet days other than staying in your hotel. Check out this list of the rainy day activities available in Krabi.

    Is there a better way to spend a rainy day than to get pampered in the hands of a skilled massage therapist? Spas and massage parlours abound in Krabi – and all around Thailand for that matter. Spa treatments and massages can be found at many hotels (see our list of the 10 best spa resorts in Krabi) and at the main resort towns along Krabi’s coastline. From a short session of reflexology (foot massage) to a three-hour treatment including hot stone, herbal hammam, oil massage and more, you will really forget about the weather conditions.

    Take a Thai Cooking Class

    Most of the Thai cooking classes in Krabi follow a similar programme, which lasts at least half a day. Visit the local market to find the freshest ingredients, discover the basis of Thai cuisine and the importance of the right balance between flavours, learn about Thai spices and how to use them, learn how to concoct and cook a few of the most popular dishes in Thailand and, as the pièce de résistance, feast on what you’ve just prepared with your group of apprentice Thai-cuisine cookers.

    The geological foundation of Krabi Province, as well as of a large part of southern Thailand, features limestone rock formations. Being a soft sedimentary rock that has the unusual ability to be dissolved in water, this permits the creation of beautiful caves and rock formations. Visit-able caves of all shapes and sizes abound in Krabi, the most famous of them being Tiger Cave in Krabi Town, and Phranang Princess Cave in Railay. Read More...

    Visit the Aquarium at Ao Nam Mao

    Located just north of Railay Peninsula, Ao Nam Mao is a cool area that have retained a strong local feel. Here you’ll find the Krabi Coastal Fisheries Research and Development Centre, an interesting vast complex that allows visitors to learn more about aquaculture and the breeding of endangered species of fish and coral. Entrance is free and, even though the entire complex is not covered with a roof, many sections offer shelter from the rain, as well as excellent information about the local marine flora and fauna.

    Go to Tesco Lotus in Krabi Town

    Tesco Lotus may not sound as a thrilling exotic attraction at first sight, but it offers a pleasant place to stay when it rains. It’s obviously not the supermarket section of Tesco Lotus which is the most interesting, but the mall section, which hosts a fair selection of diversions for a rainy day. For those looking for entertainment, Tesco Lotus features a game centre, a karaoke room and a Thai/English Cineplex. You also can eat at a wide range of restaurants, including KFC, Black Canyon or MK Suki, just to name a few.
