So when should you visit?
- Sometimes during the Low-Season it seems like the rain will never stop, and if your holiday happens to coincide with those days, then its a bummer of a trip, even with accurate weather predictions on line, its hard to tell for sure being on an island.
- If you don't want rain at all, or maybe only a little, so you can spend your time chillin in the sun, come during November to Feb.
- If you want to risk the chance of some rain but want to experience the island with very little people, come anytime from April through September
If you are coming to Phi Phi during peak season (November through February) it is highly recommended to reserve a room a few months in advance. If you just show up on this island and expect to find a decent room then you will probably be sorely disappointed.
