Flooding in southern Thailand


0069

Recommended Posts

Have been reading in the danish newspapers that there has been heavy rain and flooding inn the south of >Thailand. Koh Samis should be more or less closed (no ferries,, airport closed) and also Krabi and Phuket should have experienced a lot of trouble. Anyone staying these places can confirm and update?

Everyone has the right to my opinion

Hi!

 

I'm in Patong Beach in Phuket and it's been raining here for over a week now, with nonstop downpour for the last 4 days!

The beach is empty all sunchairs are bundled up, only a few surfers or paragliders are out fighting the waves and gusty strong wind!

All the tourists are now crowding the "JungCeylon" Shopping Centre and all restaurants are filled with disappointed two week tourists.

Many are just waiting it out hiding in their hotelrooms, there has been a few electric outages as well!

Rain is not as heavy here as I've seen in Samui, so no flooding in Patong, and I think the airport is still open, might be some flight delays though.

It's said to continue until Friday and then slowly get better!

Hi and thanks for your update.

 

I do beleive that Samui is the worst for the moment, but sitting in JungCeylon or in the hotel all day is not funny at all!

Do the Bgs have any business at all?

Was in surat thani this morning. No ferries anywhere, flights and trains cancelled. The navy just evacuated people from koh tao, island running out of food. Power is cut in much of samui.

The weather is very bad in Southern Thailand.

 

I feel sorry for the Thai's who earn a living from tourism. A lot will lose income because of the weather

 

And not forgeting the tourists who have had there holiday ruined

All i have read is that the worst affected places are Koh Samui and nearby Koh Tao (Krabi and Phuket as well, but not as bad as the other places). All these places are situated on the other side of the Gulf of Thailand - no reports till now that Koh Chang should have been affected by the floods. Furthermore they say that the weather will get better as from friday, so i beleive you could go to Koh Chang April 5th with no worries.

Definately better, no westcoast rain today!

 

Until a few minutes ago when there was a little downpour again here in Patong!

Not so windy today though, and some of the sunchairs and tourists were back out on the beach!

Even had the sun shine a few minutes midday!:GoldenSmile1:

Those that wanted off Ko Tao and Ko Phangan are apparently off. Ko Samui has regular flights in and out and around a 100 people waiting for standby flights. Ferries are running again but not yet a full service. There is still quite significant disruption in Surat Thani.

Good news, as i am heading to Samui on 8th april and on the 14-day forecast it seems to clear up totally the next days. Hope to get some real Songkran weather instead of all day rain!

A good girl gives you happiness and a bad girl gives you experience both are essential in life so enjoy every girlfriend!
