Krabi, Thailand Weather & Seasons
Krabi is located at GPS readings: Latitude 8.1° N, Longitude 99.0° E
Krabi weather is usually very predictable. The weather in Krabi is exceptionally rainy during the rainy season from about June through November, sometimes December too. By mid-December the rain has almost totally stopped and it gets warm and sometimes hot and dry. At night sleeping comfortably is never an issue as it’s very cool and usually breezy. Even during the peak of the hot season in March, April and May there is no need for an air conditioner in most homes. Fans can pull in the cool night air and most residents are OK with that.
If you’re staying in a Krabi hotel on one of the upper floors or a room that gets direct sun all day you’ll probably want to have the A/C option.
If you’re coming to bicycle, or explore the caves and mountain trekking January and February are the ideal months to visit because the weather is not too hot yet and there is very little rain. If you come during October and November you might experience a solid week of rain.
