When planning for your trip to Thailand, you may have come across several well-known places in this beautiful country, such as Phuket, Pattaya, Chiang Mai, and Koh Samui. However, you want to go somewhere that isn’t crowded. Have you ever heard of Krabi? Perhaps the name Phi Phi Islands and Railay Beach might ring a bell. If it doesn’t, this article will talk more about Krabi.

As mentioned, Phi Phi Islands and Railay Beach are found in Krabi. This place is known for its stunning limestone cliffs and a myriad of surrounding islands, not to mention mangrove forests. If you’re enjoying traveling through different seaboards, Krabi is a must-visit.

Keep in mind that Krabi isn’t known for spectacular beach parties. Instead, it is known as a great place to relax. It is even said to be the most relaxing spot in all of Thailand! With its beautiful scenery of white beaches, lush forests, and crystal clear seas, Krabi is a great place to escape the crowds from the busy cities.

If you prefer to enjoy a more secluded trip, here are some tips to help you:


1. Plan Carefully

The best way to avoid the crowd is to not travel during peak season. For Krabi, the peak season is between November and April. The best time to go is during the rainy season. You might be thinking of all the hassles and headaches you will have in the rain, but fret not. You’d actually be amazed how great a trip can be even during the rainy season.

When you visit Thailand, the weather can be unpredictable at times. You might be lucky enough to enjoy a sunny day, and then it becomes could suddenly. However, do not worry if it starts raining. This means that there are fewer people at the restaurants and the beaches! Also, accommodation and airfare will be much cheaper.


2. Timing Is Everything

Along with planning for your arrival, your itinerary should be planned out as well. The local attractions will be best visited at different times of the day. If you want to visit the Emerald Pool, weekdays are the best time, as the locals are working or at school. If you want to visit more famous places, such as the Maya Bay, an early morning trip will do you well, as you’ll be able to enjoy the sunrise without the crowd.


3. Get Off the Beaten Path

The more popular the attraction, the more people will crowd the place. You can expect famous places, such as Ao Nang Beach to be packed with tourists, especially during peak season. If you’re visiting at that time and are looking for a place to relax, consider the lesser-known areas. A great example is Tub Kaek, a secluded spot that offers beauty equal to that of Maya Bay. You can apply this same concept to restaurants and shops as well!

With proper planning, correct timing, and the willingness to get off the beaten path, you’ll surely enjoy a vacation without the hassles of a crowd. Sit back, relax, and enjoy a cold drink while you have the beach all to yourself.
