Krabi Activities

krabi white water rafting 3There are many places in the world where you can rock-climb, cycle, snorkel, kayak, ride ATV's, elephants, horses or go-karts, but, and it's a big but, there is nowhere in the world where you can do these things against a backdrop quite like Krabi.

There are also many attractions that you can view on our Krabi Attractions Page.

Take advantage of the rainy season to get to see Krabi without any crowds!

Krabi Attractions

4 Island Sunset D20 1630Just about anywhere you find yourself in Krabi, you'll have a great view, but there are some simply special places that if you have the time, you really shouldn't miss.

There are also many activities that you can view on our Krabi Activities Page.

Just the feeling of being in Krabi is its main attraction. Although tourism is making its mark, with improved roads, new buildings and hotels popping up all over the place, it only takes a few minutes drive to get out into the countryside and see the outstanding beauty that the coastline and scenery has to offer. Even the drive from the airport to Aonang is along a stunning road that weaves through the mountains. You just cannot fail to be impressed. Combine this with some outstanding beaches that even in high season are uncrowded, mainland Krabi must be one of the most attractive destinations in the world.

Bioluminescent Plankton

Bio-luminescent Plankton
Bio limuniscent plankton are present in the whole of the area of the Krabi Islands. They are small creatures that just float in the water, they cannot swim against the current so they are just washed around in the Ocean movements and tides. The faint light they produce is only visible at night on reasonably dark nights. When they are there, it is an impressive sight, just lie in the water and move around and the water around you will just glow and sparkle. It's a slightly tingly sensation.
This phenomenon occurs only when the conditions are just right and its impossible to predict whether or not you will see them.

Trips we offer where you might get to see them are the 4 Island sunset tour and the 4 Island longtail Charter with sunset on Poda Island.

Krabi Rainy Season 2016

Krabi Rainy season was a bit late arriving in 2016 with almost no rain from January right through to early May. Krabi Rainy season officially ends at the end of October, but realistically, it can rain on any day of the year, just the likelihood goes down after November.

We can now expect the normal rainy season mix of heavy rain storms and strong sun. It's amazing how quickly it changes from torrential rainfall to bright sunshine. The mountains on the coast do make rain showers very local, sometimes it can be raining heavily in one area but bright sunshine just a few hundred meters away.

If you have booked a tour and it is cancelled due to the weather then we will refund or change to a different day. Not many tours are cancelled though even when raining heavily in the morning at the pickup time, often the showers are very local and short lasting. 

Sea tours usually go ahead if its raining in Aonang as the weather is very often much clearer out at the Islands.

Longterm and even short term forecasts are not very accurate, so, its best to just be prepared for everything, have a raincoat and your suntan lotion with you at all times. Most convenience shops like 7-11 sell very cheap plastic rain coats which are idea, they pack up very small and do a great job of keeping you dry in even the heaviest shower, ok, they aren't the most fashionable items, but in a heavy rain shower you will be very happy you have one.

 

 

2015 - 2016 High Season in Krabi

High season in Krabi is from about the middle of October until the end of March with the real peak time being middle of December to middle of January.

During high season, Krabi can get very busy with most of the hotels full and most of the tours and activities booked almost to capacity. Although this does mean that everywhere is busy and on many days the beaches will be relatively crowded, its usual for the weather to be great every day, so, as long as you don't mind sharing the beaches and activities, then its still a great time to come. Unfortunately, we cannot control how busy places get though.

Top Ten Things to do in Krabi

This is a list of our favorite things to do in Krabi and Aonang. Many of these are the free simple things that anyone can do with no advance booking or cost.

Island Hopping, Exploring, Temples, markets and restaurants are all on our top ten list of things to do in Krabi.

Some people prefer organized group trips, some prefer to be more private, and budgets can be big or small. It doesn't really matter in Krabi though, whatever your budget or taste you are sure to find something that will make your trip really memorable.

You might not be able to jet ski or parasail in Krabi or get a ride on a banana boat, but there are all sorts of things to do in Krabi. What makes Krabi and Ao Nang really special is the countryside around it. It really does only take a few minutes to get out of the touristy town areas into the gorgeous mountain dominated countryside around it. Rent a bike, a car or catch a songthaew (what goes for public buses in this area) and soon you'll be confronted with endless beautiful scenery.Kids love Krabi, clean air, beautful wildlife and, of course, amazing beaches make it a real paradise for kids. If you are looking for nightlife, then perhaps there are better places, but for everyone lookingto see Thailand at its best, then Krabi really is difficult to beat.

A few of the activities are not for younger kids but most things are, if you have any questions, just ask.
All these things to do can be done on any day of the year. Some can even be more enjoyable in the rainy season you just have to be prepared and flexible.

At Krabitrek we try to inspect all the tours and attractions regularly to ensure that our descriptions are up to date and accurate. We use reliable operators and listen to any feedback and just try to offer the sort of service we would want if we were visiting.
