About Krabi & Aonang
Krabi Tides 2014-09-02
There 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!
Just about anywhere you find yourself in Krabi, you'll have a great view, but there are a few 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.
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.
Protests in Bangkok
This morning the military announced that it is taking over the security responsibilities for the Nation. This is really just a measure for them to be able to control the possibility of clashing demonstrators in Bangkok. There is no change in Krabi and Aonang and life here is going on just as normal. All tours and activities are completely unaffected. Krabi airport is also unaffected by this new development and all flights are running on schedule. I drove around Aonang and Krabi this morning and saw no soldiers at any time.
If you do travel to Bangkok or pass through then just avoid any protest areas and demonstrations and you will be fine. All taxi drivers will know which areas to avoid and themselves will be keen to avoid them. Bangkok airports are running as normal and travel between the two airports does not pass through any protest areas.
Coup ? 01/08/2014
I thought I should update this as we have all really rather forgotten the coup here. All is going on as normal and if anything things feel a bit more organized. There is no curfew, no army in sight and really no effect on any sights or attractions or activities in Krabi.
Throughout the country Thailand is now completely back to normal. There is no curfew and no sign of any army presence at Krabi airport or Bangkok Airports or anywhere else that I have seen.
Curfew is now lifted so all back to normal.
Still no real changes due to the coup. The curfew seems not to be affecting too much. Places are shutting a bit earlier than they were last month, but this is quite normal for low season.
Its been reported that the Coup leaders are considering relaxing the curfew for tourist areas. Around Aonang and Krabi though, really it is relaxed. If you are in a restaurant in Aonang and its after the curfew, no-one is going to bother you on the way back to your hotel. We will update again with any further news.
I went on an inspection trip to rafting and ATV at Phangna and did not see any road blocks, or any military at all. The weather was good, everyone was having a great time.
There is still no change in Krabi or Aonang, the airport is operating as normal and all tours and activities are carrying on as if nothing has happened. We have been out and about over the past couple of days checking and Aonang, Klong Muang and all tourist areas are totally unaffected.
Life is going on as normal, the schools across the country are shut for the day (23rd May), so you'll see even more happy children on the street than normal, but other than that we have seen no sign of any military presence. Last night during the curfew people, shops were still open at 10:15pm and tourists were still wandering around unaffected. If we hear any change to this, we'll update this news.
The Thai tv stations are not working but all internet is fine and access to all websites seems to be ok. Perhaps some sites have been blocked but nothing that we have seen yet.
All the things to do are open and running just as any normal day so please be reassured that if you do have plans to come to Krabi, then you can have peace of mind that everything is fine. If you do have to travel through Bangkok then just allow a bit more time than normal and and make sure you have your passport with you.
Rainy Season has officially arrived. After the middle of March all the way through to November, its quite normal to get some rain showers. It tends to be heavy but fast moving and short lasting. There are often evening thunderstorms.
Rainy Season in Krabi is great though. As long as you are prepared and a little bit flexible with your planning, you can get to enjoy everything looking fresh and clean with far less other tourists around.
And, to keep it in perspective, we have not had one tour or day trip cancelled due to weather so far this year. (Up to 12-05-2014).

Krabi Weather Blog
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
A couple of weeks of really nice weather mixed with some heavy rain showers, there has been a lot of rain but it has tended to be in the evening and late afternoon. This works great for the day trips as you're hopefully just back from the trip just as it starts to think about raining.
A bit of rain washes everything down greens it up and keeps the temperatures down.
Of course this is Krabi though, so there's always the chance of a sudden rainshower just at the worst possible moment, like all dressed up and just out for a nice evening meal and the clouds open and you get soaked to the skin meters from the door of your hotel. This happens to everyone in Krabi every so often. So, its always a good idea to have an umbrella with you :)
Its been a mixed couple of weeks with some rain, lots of sun and some windy days. Its quite normal at this time of year for it to be variable like this and if you have the time to enjoy sitting through the rainy days with a good book, then can be a perfect time to come. When the sun comes out it really shines!
Its been very windy the last couple of days which does mean that there can be some quite big waves. Its very unpredictable though but occasionally this can cause some problems landing at some of the Phi Phi Island beaches. The forecast is looking better for the next week or so with the normal pattern of dry sunny days and showers in the evening, but really, that can change quickly. Best to just plan for the best and be prepared for some rain.
After a rainy couple of days last week, the weather in Krabi is now really nice, hot sunny with fluffy white clouds. It being rainy season though, this could change at any time. Traditionally there is can a bit of rain in June but it usually comes in bursts with nice clear whether between.
We've had a lot of rain over the last few weeks. Just comes in burst mostly though and lots of sunshine too most days. There were a few days with rough sea but all seems calm for the moment. You can expect a bit of rain and plenty of sun over the next few days.
The last couple of days we have had a bit of mist and some very light rain early morning and a few thunderstorms around in later afternoon and early evening. Slightly hazy sunshine, but still nice and warm. The forecasts suggest that this pattern will continue for the next few days, perhaps with a few more inland showers in the afternoon on monday and tuesday.
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.
