Title sums it up.

Could possible go in Sept, Nov or Dec as well but October looks best.

TIA!

I was there in October back in 2013 and it was fine, had maybe 4 rainy days out of a 14 day trip. You just have to expect that you will get wet spells. If you're going for a month, you'll get enough climbing in. Just climb through the dry days and use the rainy days to rest and recover, maybe get a massage. The grade you're climbing is good, the quality and quantity of routes at Tonsai really improves at the 6c - 7a range. Everything I said applies to south thailand only, i've never climbed or visited in the north.

Thank you!

Is November - January or so the busy season? 

What are temps like in October?

it's the tropics, it's always hot and humid. and you're looking at peak season so plenty of drunken and drug addled action for you.

I'm just got to phi phi now for the next 5 months climbing and it hasn't rained the past 6 or so days I've been here. And I got 3 out of 5 dry days in tonsai beach which was awesome. Spaced out perfect for rest days haha. Still an awesome time now if your keen to come over.

Guideline #1: Don't be a jerk.
