Krabi weather end April-May

by SyNkRoNiZe

Hi Everyone

I'm planning to go Krabi on 30th April - 4th May. I read that May is the time where it just pours and pours. The last time I was in Phuket in August (didn't check back then), it rained continuously!

I wish to avoid that mistake but can't find another time to visit Krabi except for the dates above. Has anyone experienced heavy rain during this period of time? I know May is probably the start of the rainy season but I'm wondering if it would just start pouring on 1st May onwards! Hahaha, sounds crazy but who knows right?

Some feedback is much appreciated!

My experience last year 30.04-08.05:

30.04 it was raining pouring afternoon in Krabi
01.05-08.05 I' ve been on Koh Lanta - only two or three day there were rain downpours not longer than 1hr later afternoon. I' ve ssen the clouds over Phi Phi from Koh Lanat Long Becah, ut somehow reain never came to us. I would recommend Koh Lanta in any other sense over the Krabi, beyond the rain clause :)

I think it's best to avoid that time...monsoon season.

Travel Tips for Krabi

Mozzie Alert!

by vyxxyn

Bring mosquito repellant!

Lotsa biting ones in the Krabi Airport, and at eating places out of main towns. However those in the hotels don't seem to bite, maybe they prefer Thai blood. Repellants sold in the Thai airports are extremely expensive though some claim to be duty-free. Buy before your trip.

Long Tail Boats - Ao Nang Bay

by tony-c

If you are staying in Ao Nang Bay and you wish to visit any of the surrounding islands, well it's very easy, Just go to the beach where all the Long Tail Boats drivers hang around, They wear numbered purple vest's, Don't worry about being ripped off, they all seem to keep to the same prices where ever you decide to go, We booked a Boat for half a day which cost 1200 Baht and we decided were we would go after we had looked at the local travel brochures.

The driver will bring along bottled water, but i would not recommend drinking this, So we bought our own bottled water.

Weirdest Restaurant in Thailand?

by M0B1US about May and Mark Cafe

This place defies explanation - it is a culinary schizoid mutant!

Welcome to May and Mark's...

A few years back a Thai couple decided to set up a restaurant and decided to name it after their children - May and Mark.

They started out by selling pre cooked and pre prepared Thai curries at about the time that Krabi appeared on the tourist radar. They saw tourists walk past their cafe, but never coming in. Anxious to tap into this potentially lucrative market they decided to find out why from tourists at the modest guesthouse they had also branched out to.

Staying there was a New Zealander who explained that westerners didn't usually like pre cooked food in that manner, which was probably why they never stopped. As he was staying for a while, he offered to teach them how to bake bread western style, including sourdough bread and a flourishing sideline was born (some of life's coincidences are positively mindblowing!)...

Tourists homesick for familiar foods some began flocking to this unorthodox baking enclave and in the spirit of the Global Village, many more recipes and dishes were explained by these grateful folk from around the world...!

Now May and Mark's boasts an eclectic menu of Thai, Mexican, Indian, German, Swedish and Swiss dishes, as well as the best bread in town courtesy of a New Zealander!

Come and enjoy world cuisine at its finest - why not teach them a recipe also! We had some lovely Sourdough and Bavarian bread, perhaps it was because we hadn't had it for so long, but it was mighty fine!

Also the fresh fruit juices were fantastic...

Wat Kaew

by Willettsworld

This temple is located up the hill from the town centre where there's a series of steps that take you up in the western part of the town centre. The first building you come to at the top is very modern and there's more temple buildings along the main road which you'll come out on. Across the road from this is the old wooden ordination centre which was built in 1924. In May 1970, King Rama IX and Queen Sirikit came here to participate in the candle-lit ceremony on Visakhapuja Day.

Underwater adventures

by Jez79

There is as much to see underwater in Krabi as there is on dry land. To appreciate this, it's great to go diving or snorkelling. The visibility just off shore from the mainland isn't the best, but once you get further out there's some fantastic places. There are lots of companies offering dive packages, and for a great price you can go out snorkelling while they dive and check out things closer to the surface. The ocean around Krabi is home to many species of fish, coral and other marine life. It's also possible to spot a shark or two, though the locals swear they're the friendly kind. PADI dive packages are reasonably priced if you're interested in getting your qualification.
If you want to go further afield, you can do day tours to Phra Nang Bay and the Phi Phi Islands. One of the most common (and impressive) full day tours goes to Maya Bay, where the movie "The Beach" was filmed. Located in a national park, Maya Bay has crystal clear water, hundreds of fish and some beautiful coral. If you take some bread you can have the fish eating out of your hand. I'm not sure if this is good for the fish, but the tour operators seem to think it's ok.
Bamboo Island also has some good snorkelling.
