Krabi is subject to a typical monsoon climate with a dry season from December to April and a rainy season from May to November. Most of the tourists come between January and March to enjoy the sunny days and good weather, while the period April-May is the hottest just before the monsoon. Thai New Year occurs in April so expect higher prices in this period. From June to August the temperatures drop a little because of the rains and so do the prices as tourism slows down, making it the perfect period for those who don't mind the occasional shower. Instead, the period September-November can get very rainy and is, as such, the worst time to visit Krabi.
