Better still, Krabi adds to its secluded splendour with its natural Jacuzzi hot spring waterfalls, dramatic limestone rock scenery and a location that is rightly considered the very best from which to watch a fiery sunset disappearing beyond the horizon.

A gorgeous hideaway on the south west coast of the popular Asian destination Thailand, Krabi relies on tourism and is a location of real beauty. Here is what to bring when heading to the sumptuous beaches.
The hot and humid weather means that you will need casual and loose clothing for the daytime. In reality, there isn’t a great deal that you must pack and anything you forget can be bought fairly cheaply around Krabi.
Beachwear, including a towel, are important as are sunglasses and a sun hat because the sun can get intense. The sea life is beautiful here so a snorkel and mask can be a great addition to your packing.
On your feet, sandals are good for the hot sand and trainers are more than enough for the evenings. In your toiletry bag make room for: sunscreen, after sun, insect repellent and anti-septic cream.
If you are going to go hiking then comfortable shoes and clothes you aren’t too attached to are a good idea because it can be dirty work. A day bag will also be useful in that scenario.
In the evening, have light clothes ready to form layers. The town itself is casual so it doesn’t matter too much how you dress, although resorts can be different, just make sure to have a cardigan or sweater if you do cool off.
Don’t forget a plug adapter!
Enjoying the waters of the Andaman Sea, Krabi has 130 islands and two main seasons. While it is hot and humid year-round, May through October sees the wet season while November to April is the time to experience the dry season.
As is the norm, it is the dry season that is the peak time for tourists and while respite is found with dropping nighttime temperatures, the humidity rises.
December and January are the busiest two months but November can be a good time to go as it isn’t too warms and the monsoon winds have all but receded.
The wet season is unpredictable and while you can get a week of cloud and heavy rain, you could also find long periods of sun and blue skies. Although, the main problem is the extremely high humidity.
