Krabi has two predominant seasons which is hot season and rainy season, but we have to be more detailed. Hot season is from January to April and this is followed by the so called rain season. However rain occurs mainly in the evening hours from May to December. Most rain does occur in the month of November where one could face 2-3 days without sunshine. Please avoid visit Krabi during this time although you may find the most cheapest airlines ticket or package online. There's no point you pay cheap tickets but there's nothing you can do there. The temperature in Krabi changes from 16.9 degrees to 37.3 degrees Celsius.
