We should start of by saying that the North - Chiang Mai, Chiang Rai etc are all fine is the South - Phuket, Samui & Krabi. The area effected by the waters is basically just north of Bangkok itself - Ayuthaya, Pathum Thani, Rangsit, Don Muang etc.
The large volumes of water threatened to pour into central Bangkok. However, this threat has significantly receded. There is still water there but it is reducing and the City and Government authorities are making progress with reducing water levels.
Since mid October central Bangkok has remained dry and life has remained normal - all our transport service BTS, MRT, buses etc have operated as usual. Despite some initial concerns, supplies of all food and beverages has proceeded as normal.
The main tourist spots - Grand Palace, Wat Poh, Jim Thompson House etc have remained open. It's just too easy for the international media to right us of but Bangkok is still here and" open for business as usual"!
If you'd like any updated information on what is really happening here in central Bangkok then do email me ( David) at - firstname.lastname@example.org. Best regards and hope to see you in Bangkok - Krungthep - " city of angels".
