Flood in Central and Northeastern of Thailand become better and no heavy rain. A few areas in Ayuthaya and Ubon Rajthani are still flooded. Most tourist attractions are ready to welcome tourists again. Siam Express’ group going to Pimai Historical Park in Korat yesterday enjoyed their time even with small rain.
Due to the Depression in the Southern areas of Thailand, some provinces are flooded. Train has been able to operate from Bangkok up until Surathani only. The most flood affected area are Haad Yai and Songkhla where there are many Asian tourists and only a few European tourists. Our clients going to Chumporn yesterday faced small rain a long the way but were happy in general.
Samui airport has been closed since this morning and looked for a possibility to operate this afternoon when the sky opens and when the airline system is workable. Ferry from Surat Thani to Samui has stopped operating since yesterday due to high wave. 4WD or a pick up car can only be used on the main road. Many areas are affected from flood. Some of business activities and tourist attractions are temporary closed. It is still raining from time to time. Our local representative is stand-by at the airport to assist clients for pre-check in when Bangkok Airways announces the resume of its flight.
No flood is reported, heavy rain stopped in the morning but the sky over Krabi, Lanta, Phuket and Khao Lak is still unclear and possible wide spread rain. People who live in risky areas such as hill slopes, near water ways or river and coastal areas are well informed of strong wind and heavy rain which may cause sudden flood and land slide. High wave is expected.
Another Depression to the South of Thailand is expected on 5-6 and 10 November.
