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.

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 BBQ tour and the 4 Island longtail Charter with sunset on Poda Island.

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.
