Rain is every day more and more rare, despite today was quiet cloudy.
Wind has changed and now i actually non at all. For next two days is expected to blow a bit stronger and it will change direction coming from North East.
Can see from forecast and from this interesting link the actual situation.
So we like to say on our blog about Phuket that here in South Thailand and specially on West Coast that faces the Andaman Sea everything is running normally. News show and reports about flooding that are happening in North East Thailand, the area that border Laos and Cambodia. There in October is normal to have torrential rains that result in rivers to raise in level.
These floods will affect also Bangkok region where all major rivers flow into the Gulf of Thailand.
Enjoy your holidays and don't worry about Phuket beaches are beautiful and ready. and for those like diving and snorkeling the Similan Island Marine park has reopen, Flat sea and good visibility makes the reef s there unique. Best way to visit the Thailand Marine parks on the Andaman Sea Coast is by one of the many Thailand liveaboard.
