The coolest month is December with an average low of 23°C (73°F) and high of 31°C (88°F), which is still warm. The driest month is February, with almost no rainfall.
The hottest month is April, with an average high of 34°C (93°F) and low of 24°C (75°F). The highest rainfall comes in October.
Best Times to Visit Krabi
The best time to visit Krabi weather-wise is from December to February. The weather is not-so-hot in the evenings, but can still be very warm in the afternoon, and it's mostly dry and sunny, which is very suitable for all kinds of activities.
If you prefer water sports, like snorkeling and diving, March and April are still suitable for a visit. The wind and waves are usually calm and the water temperature is warm.
If you want to find discounts, you could consider traveling in the rainy season, between August and October.

Thailand, Singapore, Bali
In Thailand, Tanny and Nori(Suparp), were both incredible! They were both fun, funny, and full of knowledge and made sure we got the full experience. They went the extra mile and always made sure we had cold bottled water and towels to cleanse our hands. In Singapore, Nicole was an absolute gem. She was so kind and knowledgeable and guided us in the right direction to make our day as enjoyable as possible. She helped us choose a top notch local lunch and coffee spot in China Town and taught us so much about the country! In Bali, Emon was an absolute joy. He was very knowledgeable and kind and absolutely made sure we were feeling comfortable and was willing to be flexible with us. He was fun to converse with and made our time traveling between destinations so enjoyable! I cannot recommend Asia Highlights enough! Accommodations, travel arrangements and guided tours were all a breeze.More

Large multi-generational holiday in Thailand
The holiday was wonderful. Our guides, Mr Monchai (Bangkok), and Ms Tipagorn (Tippy) (Chiang Mai) were exceptional. Travelling in a large multigenerational group with many children requires patience and our guides truly understood that. Mr Monchai and Ms Tippy shared their extensive knowledge of the many wonderful places we visited, and were flexible to take us to additional places along the way based on discussions. While everyday was busy, having them greet us with patience and a smile truly made this a memorable holiday. The hotels we stayed at were equally wonderful and went above and beyond to celebrate not only my parents 50th anniversary but also celebrate 2 milestone birthdays that occurred. We will cherish this holiday for many years to come. We hope to use Asia Highlights again.More

Wonderful Guides and Experience
Our large group arrived in Bangkok with Tanni as our guide. She was wonderful! An absolute joy to spend time with. She is knowledgeable, kind, and extremely funny. I don’t know what we would have done without her! After Bangkok, we traveled to Chang Mai, where Indy was our tour guide. She was a delight! She is kind, knowledgeable, and so patient. Our trip to Thailand was an adventure of a lifetime and these two women helped make it memorable. I would definitely use Asia Highlights for any future travel in Asia.More

Guide - Chai
We travelled from Vietnam to Bangkok and were blessed to have a guide named Chai. He was a superb guide and it is a pity we couldn't bottle him and take him home. He was very knowledgeable and an absolute gentleman. He could not have done enough to facilitate us and imparted so much knowledge about the Temples, Buddism and the History of Thailand in general. Not only did he give us a great overview of the past and current ways of living in Thailand but I also feel I came away a much better person having interacting with him. I will carry many of his teachings with me for the rest of my life and know that having met him was a very special blessing in my life.More

We are only on day 5 of our 15 day trip…
Our first stop so far was in Hanoi where our guide Trong was just so awesome! He shared about his culture and family life which showing us sites through a city tour. He was so funny making lots of jokes and always made sure we were having fun while learning about everything! He checked on us frequently even when we were no longer with him since we then went on a cruise in Halong Bay! Halong Bay and the cruise on Paradise Elegance went way above anything I expected. The scenery was breathtaking, the ship was so beautiful and clean with such fresh, good food! And I can’t sing enough praise for the staff who took care of us- especially Anna and Belle! They went above and beyond to make sure we enjoyed every aspect from eating meals with Anna to every other detail with Belle! I highly recommend Asian Highlights to help plan these extraordinary trips! This already has been a trip of a lifetime and we still have so much more to see all thanks to Cathy!!More

Tanni for the win!
14 of my closest friends and family descended upon Bangkok ready to see the town. Asia highlights and Tanni took us on a tour that changed our lives. We experienced so much everyday. Tanni was amazing! She did all the thinking for us, so we all could just be present and enjoy the moment. I can’t recommend this company, and especially Tanni enough.More

From the moment I landed in Bangkok, Ms Noi Ying was there to welcome me and get me settled into my hotel. We enjoyed several days together touring Bangkok and Kanchanaburi. In Chiang Mai, Mr Ekachai took my son snd I on an amazing trip to the Elephant Jungle Sanctuary and to visit a community Lanna home, gardens and a hands-on cooking class preparing an authentic Thai meal. Lisa arranged a last-minute speedboat tour of 5 breathtaking islands in Phuket. From start to finish, the guides exceeded my expectations!! Thank you, Asia Highlight!! Debbie WoodsMore

The Worst Times to Visit Krabi
May in Krabi can be muggy. If you cannot stand mugginess, May should be avoided. The muggy feeling is strongest in May, because the moderate rain increases humidity but does not bring the temperature down much (compared to the heavier rain later in the year).
August, September, and October are also times to avoid if you don't like rain, especially October.
But some travelers also choose visit during those times, because there are fewer tourists and great discounts.
However, these "worst" times actually won't ruin your travel plans if they're mindfully and flexibly made. The effects of the rain/heat can be ameliorated by organizing your schedule wisely.
Peak Season in Krabi (November to February)
November — End of the Rains
- Average low/high temperature: 23/31°C (74/88°F)
In November, Krabi begins to see more visitors as the rains ease off.
In the first half the month, there might be afternoon/dusk showers due to the lingering monsoon influence. But they won't affect your sightseeing and activities. Most days are bright.
December — Coolest Month
- Average low/high temperature: 23/31°C (73/88°F)
Weather in December in Krabi is great, with blue skies, warm sunshine, and comfortable breezes.
December is the busiest month because of the Christmas holiday and New Year. The wonderful weather and stunning scenery in Krabi attract many travelers to spend the holidays there.
January — Warm and Sunny
- Average low/high temperature: 22/32°C (72/89°F)
January in Krabi is also bright and sunny. The temperature of the water is warm. You can enjoy yourself in Krabi with all kinds of activities like snorkeling, rock climbing, island hopping to Koh Lanta, and kayaking.
Similar to December, Krabi in January will also be busy. It is best to book your hotel well in advance.
February — Most Sunshine
- Average low/high temperature: 22/34°C (72/93°F)
February is the driest month of the year in Krabi. Although the temperature is slightly higher, it still doesn't feel too hot because of the dryness and cooler evenings. It is a pleasant time to do all kinds of sightseeing and outdoor activities.
Shoulder Season in Krabi (March to July)
March — Beginning to Heat Up
- Average low/high temperature: 23/34°C (74/93°F)
Actually, March is still very suitable for a visit to Krabi, especially in the first half the month. The temperature is still comfortable. As February's peak season fades, you can enjoy quieter beaches in March.
April — Hottest Month
- Average low/high temperature: 24/34°C (75/93°F)
April is the hottest month. The afternoon sun is very hot. Be careful not to get sunburned when going to the beach.
It is time to play with water! Krabi has a grand water-splashing festival (Songkran Festival) in April. People celebrate the festival with water fights, which also keep the heat away.
May — Rains Come
- Average low/high temperature: 24/33°C (76/90°F)
The monsoon brings rainfall and also a muggy feeling in May. It is mostly cloudy and overcast.
You can relax in the hotel pool, enjoy a spa, or explore the night market in the evening.
June — Hot and Cloudy
- Average low/high temperature: 24/32°C (75/89°F)
In June, the mugginess is somewhat relieved. Although June is the rainy season, the rains are not yet at high levels. It is cloudy for most of the day, but outdoor sightseeing is still very possible.
The rain in Krabi is unpredictable. Even in the rainy season, it could be sunny for more than ten days without rain, or you could face daily storms.
July — Still Hot
- Average low/high temperature: 24/31°C (75/88°F)
The weather in July is similar to June: hot with occasional rain showers. Most activities and sightseeing are good to do, such as visiting a national park, or a temple.
While some water activities are available, like snorkeling, they don't offer the best experience because of the low visibility in the sea and fluctuating currents.
Low Season in Krabi (August to October)
August — Rain Increases
- Average low/high temperature: 24/31°C (75/88°F)
The temperature in August is the same as July's. But the influence of the monsoons increases. The rain is longer and harder, but it won't last all day.
There are not many people in Krabi during this period, so it is very pleasant to wander around and explore areas like Krabi Town.
September — Second Rainiest Month
- Average low/high temperature: 24/31°C (75/88°F)
You may see heavier rain in September, but the rainstorms make the surroundings lush and beautiful.
You can go to a spa and relax in a resort on rainy days.
To compensate for the weather, you can find great discounts in September.
October — Wettest Month
- Average low/high temperature: 23/31°C (74/88°F)
The rain reaches a peak in October, which makes the temperature a little less hot.
It is a good time to take advantage of the quiet beaches and resorts before the peak season returns.
