Koh Phi Phi Weather.

The tropical weather on Koh Phi Phi varies by season and month from hot, humid and wet to hot and dry. Koh
Phi Phi Rain happens during the low season but global warming has effected the consistency of the standard forecasts and rain
can come out of season, even in these high season months. This Koh Phi Phi Weather page has been put together from observations
taken since 1992.

We have also Rated the time to be on Koh Phi Phi by it's weather only. The low season months, when it is quiet can be better
than the busy high season months as places like Maya Bay can be empty. Also Note, there are 9 km of snorkeling and diving reefs
that are protected from low season winds making the island a truly all year round holiday destination.

many years but global warming and El Nino type factors have ensured that this transition from wet to dry happens over a longer period
