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.

The historians claim that the Krabi area is the area with signs of the earliest human habitation in Asia, and its not difficult to see why. You can imagine cave men and women from all over Asia setting off in search of a place where they can survive. They arrived in Krabi and stopped, great weather, abundant fruit and fish, verdant jungle and palatial caves must have made Krabi paradise on earth for early man. The amazing thing is that its nor changed much and although much of the jungle has been replaced by plantation, Krabi is still just as much a paradise as it ever was.

Krabi Fruit

For fruit lovers, Krabi really is paradise. There is a massive range of of fruit available in Krabi, some is seasonal and others. like water melon are all year round.

Pineapple - They come in all different sizes and shapes from the tiny tennis ball sized ones to the massive super sharp varieties.

Mangoes - sweet yellow ones or large green sweet and sour ones, I love mangoes!

Pomelo - Pomelo is a similar sort of taste to grapefruit, its peeled and can be either pink or yellow inside. Best when they are a bit riper and nice and sweet.

Mangosteen - one of fruits royalties, the succulent white flesh inside the hard purple shells is a real taste sensation. 

Durian - The King of Fruits. Don't be deceived by the smell, (which some say is close to rotting garbage), the taste is a really complicated array of individual sensations that combine to give Durian lovers the closest taste to heaven they can find. The shells are rather dangerous though with really sharp big spikes. Inside there are large seeds and its the flesh around them that gets people so excited. Don't eat too much though.

Rambutan - the red ones with green hairs - the best ones are the local ones when they are in season. You'll see lots of pickup trucks selling them out of the back of the car really cheaply and these are often the best. I can eat a kilogram at one sitting!

Long Kong - a yellow ping pong ball sized fruit. Peel off the outside to get segments that have a grapefruit flavor. The peel can be a bit sticky on the fingers.

Longan - yellow small curcular fruit about cherry size that comes in bunches - they have a hard black seed inside. Very sweet when ripe.

Chompoo - a red pear shaped fruit. Quite hard and crunchy and very juicy. A real favorite with the kids.

Star Fruit - you will only see in season at the markets - yellow when ripe and very tangy. A slice or two is so refreshing.

Dragon Fruit - bright pink with soft green spikes on the outside and white flesh dotted with small black seeds on the inside. Some can be a bit bland in flavour, but if you get a good one, they are fantastic. don't worry about eating the seeds. (Not quite sure why they named these cute fruit after a fire breathing monster though, If you came across a dragon that looked like one of these, I think most people would not be so scared.)

Falang - shaped a bit like a large green apple with a light green colour. They have a very firm quite dry flash and no two taste quite the same. Thai people often eat them with a little bit of chilli and sugar mix.

bananas - Bananas come in all sizes from the tiny finger sized to big fat ones and all in between. Some have very yellow creamy flesh and others are more dry. Some are best bbq'd. Full of fibre, vitamins and energy, a banana a day is really good for you.

Custard Apple - on the outside, they have a scaley sort of shell. On the inside its a sweet and tasty paste like texture.

Krabi Rainy Season 2015

Krabi weather has a mind of its own, rainy season in Krabi can start from any date between the beginning of March and the beginning of June.

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

Longterm 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.

Krabi Weather Blog

4 Island Sunset Weather

Our Krabi Weatherblog runs right back to July 2012, so you can quickly see what the weather was like the last years to compare with what its likely to be when you come for a holiday



Wow, its been a long time sinice I have put anything on here. The reason is that it just hasn't changed. Hot sun without a drop of rain. The forecast are suggesting there will be more chance of some rain at the beginning of March, but Krabi weather is so unpredictable. 


Its been over a month since this was updated as really, the weather has stayed the same for the whole time. We had about 2 hours of rain on the 15th February but other than that it has been hot dry and sunny. Between now and April, we can expect it to get a couple of degrees hotter and the normal pattern is to start getting a few afternoon thunderstorms, but this is Krabi and whatever predictions are made, they could well be wrong. As always, its just best to be prepared for everything, so take and umbrella and suncream on every trip.


Well into dry season now, no rain for the last couple of weeks at all and none of the forecasts. Hot, blue skies and beautiful. The heat picks up between now and April so in Krabi by mid April it will be three or four degrees hotter than November. 


The first post of the New Year. The last couple of weeks have been very similar weather. Nice sunny mornings for the most part with a few rain showers, some quite heavy in the afternoons and evenings. The weather forecasts have mostly been wrong, as usual predicting, much more rain than actually appeared.  No sea tours have been cancelled in the last 2 weeks.

The next week is likely to be more of the same. At the moment the forecasts are saying highest chance of rain on thursday or friday, but, that may well change. In Krabi, our best advice is always to just go with it but be prepared for both sun and a rain shower. Just do not trust any forecasts more than a day ahead.


Its a beautiful sunny morning, clear and bright. The weather forecast show that it should be raining right now!. Perhaps we will see a bit of a thunderstorm later in the day, but there is simply no way to predict it. 

Just to show how unpredictable the weather is in Krabi, yesterday at my house just 2km from Krabi was raining all day but the beach and Island trips had beautiful weather and not a drop of rain.  


Its looking great for the next week or so, the thunderstorms seem to have gone away for the moment and we are in for some lovely clear days. It is quite normal to have some rain in December though, so best be prepared as usual. Luckily, they tend to start at about 4 in the afternoon so just after most tours have returned. Hopefully though, we will get some really beautiful weather and people can get on with the things they want to do without any interruption.


Back from holiday so can start the Krabi Weather Blog again. Its sunny right now but the last few weeks have seen quite a bit of rain. Most of the rain has been in short sharp bursts with some really quite heavy rainfall. There are likely to be some afternoon thunderstorms over the next few days, but hopefully the pattern of sunny mornings and days will stay the same. As always, just be prepared and take a raincoat if going out for the day.


Sunny days with a few showers is exactly what to expect during October in Krabi. Last night there was some very heavy rain at my house, but 1km up the road there was none at all. Just because its raining at your hotel does not mean it will be raining at the beach. As always, just be prepared and keep a rain coat or umbrella and suncream on you when you go out.


Food and Restaurants in Krabi

The world has had a love affair with Thai food for many years now, and Krabi enjoys some of the best of it.

We've recently visited Ruan Mai, the Khanom Jean shop and the Frog and Catfish. All very enjoyable but in very different styles.

Check out our Krabi Restaurants page. Or, why not take a Thai cooking class and learn to make delicious Thai food yourself. Have a look at our Thai cooking courses.






Top Ten Things to do in Krabi

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

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 in Krabi or get a ride on a banana boat, but there are all sorts of things to do in Krabi.

A few are not suitable 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.

1. Island Hopping - 4 Islands, Hong Islands, Phi Phi Islands to name a few.

2. Get Lost (hire a bike or car and just explore!) There are real hidden gems, like Phanom Bencha National Park, easy to find and a beautiful waterfall.

3. Visit a Temple (Tiger Cave Temple is one of the best in Asia.)

4. Markets - the morning market in Krabi is a place to really see the real culture of Krabi. The Weekend Walking street market is a place to sample lots of different Thai foods, pick up a few souvenirs and be entertained by a true variety of entertainment.

5. Thara Park - its just a simple free entry park. There is a kids playground, tennis courts, basketball and football pitches and a great place to watch the world go by. Very few tourists go here, which makes it a great place just to get a feel for real Krabi culture. Many days there is also a rollerblading club for kids. You can just turn up and rent a pair of rollerblades and get a bit of free tuition. Rent costs 40thb and they have sets for kids aged about 4 to 10.

6. Hiking - There are some amazing walks in Krabi. Many are free. Some of the mainland beaches are also fantastic and whereas Phi Phi and the other islands are quite often crowded, you will quite often find yourself completely alone on the mainland beaches. Klong Muang (where the Sheraton hotel is) is one of our favorites, if you have time when its high tide, don't miss a visit. Tup Kaek beach is another great palce, with a long beach perfect for a sunset stroll.

7. Kayak - See Krabi by Kayak, kids love it and its a beautiful way to see the nature and scenery which Krabi is so famous for.

8. Eat - Thai food is world renowned and Krabi has some amazing food and some amazing restaurant locations. Food is available for all tastes from the most authentic to International food for those not quite ready for full on Thai spiciness :)

9. Elephant Trek - Krabi first existed as an elephant camp, you can even take a bath with one in Krabi!

10. Adrenalin - ATV, White water rafting, Rock Climbing, Scuba diving. Krabi isn't just for lying on the beach!

Just click the links below for more details on these and more.


Krabi for Kids


Coming to Krabi with kids? Krabi is a paradise for kids of all ages. Kayaking, Thai dancing, Muay Thai, Rock Climbing, or just simply a day on the beach. We have kids and know that the best way to give them (and you) a great holiday is to keep them busy.

We have a great selection of activities and tours for kids in Krabi.

update - We've just added the really special, "Elephant Trek with Elephant Bath" trip. We visited this last week and it got the highest rating of "AWESOME!!!" from our kids.

update - We just checked out Krabi Fun Park yesterday with a bunch of kids aged 6 - 8. They all had a fantastic time and all felt very safe. Guides were friendly and even the youngest girl aged 6, who was previously a little scared of heights came away feeling confident and totally fearless. We didn't do everything, but they came away begging for more. Being so close to Aonang and Krabi its great to have a new activity that can just fill a few hours.

Check out the Krabi Fun Park here

If you have younger children, it might be an idea to buy your own inflateable life jacket (like the one my son, Jak, is wearing in the picture above. These are inexpensive, light and can be carried around with you. Some of the tour companies do have a limited supply of children's life jackets but it never hurts to have a backup just in case. These inflateable jackets can also come in useful on the beach just to give you peace of mind when the kids are playing. The jackets can be purchased at many of the shops on the Aonang beach front road for about 300thb.
