Phuket has been hit by a large downpour, with heavy rain on the island from around late last night until today. This has resulted in flash floods in Patong Beach, Chalong and Phuket Town areas in Phuket, and Khao Lak in the nearby Phang Nga province has also seen some flooding.

This has made transport around Phuket difficult, particularly from Patong to Phuket Airport, so we are advising all clients to allow extra time to get to the airport, and we are collecting clients earlier than normal to allow for the extra journey time. So far, all clients have been able to get to the airport with no flights missed. Phuket Airport itself hasn’t been affected though, and no flights have been cancelled to date.

The bad weather is forecasted to last until Friday or Saturday, so we will keep you updated on any further developments.
