To our Thailand travelers, we wanted to provide you with an update on the weather sitaution.
Ayutthaya is still flooded and all sightseeing tours to Ayutthaya, Lopburi and Uthai Thani are suspended until at least the end of October. Despite encouraging signs early this week, Bangkok may also see some flooding close to the city’s center, though it is unlikely that the central business district and tourist attractions will be affected.
The highways in Central Thailand are starting to clear, with some sections that were previously flooded becoming accessible. However, the classic Bangkok to the North tour is still being re-routed along highway 340 instead of Asia Highway No. 1, resulting in an extra 2.5 hours journey time for this tour. All trains from Bangkok to the north of Thailand are cancelled until further notice, but trains to/from the north-east are operating normally. All airports in Thailand, including Bangkok’s main international airport, are running normally, as well.
We are monitoring the situation very closely and, as always, the safety of our clients is our number one priority. If the situation changes in Bangkok or any part of Thailand we will update you as soon as possible, and we have very careful contingency plans in place in case the flooding is worse than expected.
