5 Krabi Travel and Safety Tips – …Before You Head Off to Paradise

If you're planning to vacation out in Thailand, Krabi is one of the best options available to you. Far away from the bustling crowds of the big cities, you can enjoy everything the country has to offer in peace. So, if Krabi is your destination, here are a few safety tips to be mindful of.


Choosing the Right Time

Before you set off to Krabi is search of adventure and excitement, it's always good practice to find out if you've gotten your timing right. Being a region close to the equator, Krabi enjoys stable weather for most of the year – there are exceptions to this, of course. Generally, you'll want to avoid the monsoon seasons. During these time periods, the region experiences frequent rain, thunderstorms, and even the occasional hurricane. These weather conditions mean that certain activities like scuba-diving are unsafe to try out. As such, in order to stay safe and get the best out of your vacation in Krabi, consider visiting during the peak season from November to April.


Preparing Your Budget

Before travelling to Krabi, it's a good idea to draw yourself a vacation budget. In it, you should detail your entire spending amount as well as daily budgets – this will help you save a lot of money and get the best out of your expenditure. Naturally, this means mapping out all your expenditures. Think of where you want to stay, would you prefer staying at one of the Krabi beach hotels – say, for example, the Avani Ao Nang Cliff Krabi Resort – or maybe a boutique hotel on offer. Also, take time to plan out your excursion schedule and to read up on all the necessary safety precautions associated with each activity.


Getting a SIM Card

getting a local SIM card after you land in Krabi can make a lot of things more convenient, what's more, you'll be saving a nice amount of cash on roaming charges. Thailand's internet is generally fast and reliable, so you don't have to worry about any potential service interruptions either. As far as vendors go, you can pick a SIM up right at the airport itself. If not, almost any supermarket or tech shop you can find on the streets will have what you're looking for.


Health and Hygiene Concerns

One of the most important health concerns in Thailand is water. Simply put, avoid drinking tap water or water from dubious sources at any point. Even the hardiest stomach can fall victim to the plethora of pathogens present in the region's unfiltered water supply. As such, remember to always have boiled or safely bottled water during your travels. Due to the ongoing pandemic situation globally, you'll also want to have a hand sanitizer and a face mask with you, if you're planning to roam the streets of Krabi.


Dealing with the Crowds

Thailand often earns a lot of praise for being one of the best places to visit in South East Asia, but even regions like Krabi can suffer from being overcrowded. In today's climate, there are major health and safety concerns when it comes to mingling with large tourist crowds. As such, it might be a good idea to plan excursions to more isolated locations like the region's national parks or secluded hiking trails.
