The Phi Phi Islands in Krabi Province are a popular tourist destination and have only become more so since they were featured in the movie The Beach. Krabi is also famous for rock climbing, one of the best in Thailand.
Like much of Thailand, the weather here is of the tropical variety, meaning hot and humid conditions year-round. Temperatures hover around 32 °C during the day and 25 °C at night, with just a few degrees difference between the warmest and coolest months. Humidity is mostly around 80% or more, so be sure to drink enough fluids! November to February in general is the driest time of the year, with just some regular showers (later afternoon) and a mix of clouds and sun. Rain increases from March onwards, reaching a peak in August and September before preparing again for the somewhat drier and cooler season.
Krabi Airport (KBV) has regular connections with Kuala Lumpur, Bangkok and Singapore. Tiger Airways, a budget airline, handles the Singapore - Krabi traffic. Bangkok Airways also flies to Bangkok and Koh Samui. Air Asia flies to Kuala Lumpur. There are even seasonal flights directly to Krabi from Helsinki, Warsaw, Copenhagen, Stockholm, Goa, Oslo and Gothenburg.
Long-distance buses connect Krabi to various parts of Thailand. Luxury buses have the facility of reclining seats, snacks and dinner. There are plenty of minibuses plying between Krabi and other southern Thai cities such as Hat Yai, Trang, Surat Thani and Phuket.
