One of the most relaxing places to go to in Thailand is Krabi. Located in the southern part of the country, Krabi is well-known for its beautiful white beaches, lush jungles, and breathtaking sceneries. There are also plenty of attractions in the area that will let tourists authentically experience the culture of Thailand.

The question is, when is the best time to go to Krabi? Thailand only has two seasons: warm and wet. If you’re planning to visit Krabi soon, it’s essential that you know when’s the best time to go.

Warm Season

Known as the peak season in Krabi, the warm season begins in December and ends in May. If you don’t mind being with a lot of tourists, then you can definitely go when the sun is up in the sky and you can freely enjoy the beaches and other attractions that Krabi has to offer.

Hotels and villas are more expensive during this time, while the really popular ones are often fully booked. Hence, it won’t hurt to book six months ahead of your vacation dates to get a spot at your preferred hotel or villa. Some tourists even book their Krabi hotel or villa a year ahead.

The peak season is the best time to visit not only the area of Krabi, but the whole of Thailand as well. If you’re visiting in April, you also get to enjoy their New Year festival, the “Songkran.” However, the months of April and May tend to be the hottest. So, if you don’t want to be under too much heat, but you want to go during the peak season, it’s best to pick dates between January and March.

Wet Season

People who go to Krabi during the wet season are usually the ones who don’t want to experience the influx of tourists. The rainy season in Krabi starts from May and it lasts until November. Expect the most rainfall during the months of September and October.

If you want to save money on your accommodations, then the wet season is the best time to go. Hotels and villas are more affordable during this time as they’re not usually that packed. Additionally, the beaches won’t be too busy, and neither will the cafes and restaurants in the area.

One thing to keep in mind though is that there might be some places in Krabi that will be closed down during this season. Another thing is that the wet season may present some challenges that might have you curled up in your hotel room for a day or two. If you don’t mind any of these things, then visiting Krabi during the wet season will still be an enjoyable experience.


One of the best things about Krabi is, regardless of the season that you visit, you can guarantee that you will still have a lot of fun. Aside from the beaches, Krabi has a lot to offer—everything from jungles to art museums. Rest assured that you can immerse yourself in magnificent Thai culture in Krabi regardless of the season.
