Krabi Scene Less busy than Phuket and arguably more beautiful than Surat Thani, Krabi is a well-established go-to province in southern Thailand. Krabi is famed for its breath-taking karst landscape, and Tiger Cave Temple, or Wat Tham Suea in Thai, is a series of temples that includes a stunning Buddha statue just a mere 1,247 steps up to the summit of a mountain. A gruelling climb in Krabi’s tropical climate, it’s well worth the effort as those who reach the top are treated with stunning views out over the province and several beautiful statues. Just south of its coast are the Phi Phi islands which is where the film The Beach was shot on Maya Bay on Koh Phi Phi Lee. And famously, off its west coast is the Island of Koh Khao Phing Kan which is famous for the tall islet, Ko Tapu, featured in the James Bond movie, 'The Man with the Golden Gun'.

Climate: The climate of Krabi is tropical and hot all year round, with a dry season which runs from December to March. The rainy season starts in March and ramps up in April before the monsoon and runs from May to October. In November, especially in the first part, there can still be rain, and this can continue as some showers into December. The temperature is high throughout the year with average highs never dropping below 31°C (88°F). From December to March the humidity is slightly lower. At night, temperatures rarely drop below 20°C (68°F). From February to April, before the arrival of the monsoon, there is a slight increase in temperature; this is typically the hottest time of the year, and the temperature often reaches 36°C (97°F). The islands and the beaches offer some respite with the sea breeze. During El Niño years, the dry period is particularly hot. The best period to go to Krabi for a beach holiday is the dry season, from late December to March or April. In March and April, it is hot, and the pre-monsoon rains become more frequent, so the absolute best time is from December to February.
