What is Krabi weather like at the end of June?

Posted by rayste01 on 16/6/2009 at 09:37

We are thinking of going to Krabi from Chiang Mai for a few days between June 25-29 to visit Railey beach, Ko Phi Phi, etc. Being monsoon season around Krabi, wondering if we should go straight to the islands around Ko Samui side directly from Chiang Mai and skip Krabi all together? We have June 25th to July 4th to explore beaches. Suggestions? We are looking to spend the bulk of our time in Ko Tao. ...

Southern Andaman Islands in late November

Posted by kraver_alex on 11/6/2009 at 21:35

Hello one and all Me and my girlfriend are flying into Kuala Lumpur on the 15th November and after a few days in KL, maybe even just the one if it's raining big time, we'll be making our way into Thailand. We were thinking about stopping at one of the Southern Andaman Islands around this time (not sure which one yet...), and my question is: is it likely that we will encounter some rain here around this time? If so, then we'll probably skip the island and carry on heading up to Bangkok. C ...

Avoid far southern Thailand due to safety concerns?

Posted by DLuek on 4/12/2008 at 09:59

Greetings, My girlfriend and I (we're US Citizens) are planning a trip to SE Asia from Feb. 1 to May 15. Originally we were planning on flying in and out of Bangkok and going from Thailand (south) - Cambodia - Vietnam - Laos - Thailand (north/central). After the recent airport closures in Bangkok, we looked into other options (I know BKK is up and running again but I fear protesters may return at some point).
