Krabi lies only eight degrees above the equator, and so naturally maintains a tropical climate all year round. The year is split into two seasons - hot and dry, and 'cool' and wet. Generally, the wet season begins in May and lasts until October, but due to the unpredictable nature of the monsoon winds the seasons can shift slightly, so there is a slight chance of rain on the edge of the dry season. The temperature peaks in March and April, when a dry heatwave is almost guaranteed. The Krabi seas maintain a year round temperature of between 28°C and 30°C all year long.
