Situation Update...

December 2011


During the past few weeks, Thailand has been getting attention in the news regarding flooding in the country. 

Since mid-November, flood waters have been receding in most of the affected areas of Thailand’s central provinces and several districts of greater Bangkok. Central Bangkok was not affected by the flood. No provinces in the south, north, and northeast of Thailand were affected by the flood. Almost all key tourist destinations and attractions throughout Thailand were not affected by the flood.

As the flooding situation has become more stable, below are some updates to reflect actual and changing conditions.

In the Bangkok Metropolitan Area, the central part of the city where most tourists frequent was not affected by the flood. It is expected to remain dry. Flood water is receding in many districts of Bangkok. This includes the Chatuchak District, where Chatuchak Weekend Market is located. The market itself was not flooded. 

Areas still flooded in the Bangkok Metropolitan Area include suburbs in the east and west, the west bank of the Chao Phraya River, and districts in the northern part of the city.

In Central Bangkok, businesses, hotels, shops and tourist attractions are open as per normal in all areas. Hotels monitored the situation constantly and were not affected by flooding.

The Skytrain and subway are operating normally. Taxis and tuktuks – one of Bangkok’s icons, are available as per normal. Boat services on the Chao Phraya River have resumed.

Suvarnabhumi Airport, the main international gateway to Thailand, remains open and will not be affected by the flood. Suvarnabhumi Airport is the main connector for international arrivals to domestic flights serving tourist destinations throughout Thailand such as Phuket, Chiang Mai and SuratThani. Domestic flights are operating as per normal between Suvarnabhumi Airport and other airports in Thailand.

Transportation to and from the airport into central Bangkok including taxis, buses and the Airport Rail Link are operating normally. Highways from the airport to tourist destinations southeast of Bangkok such as Pattaya, Rayong and Ko Chang are open.

The two low cost domestic airlines normally based at Don Mueang Airport, which is still closed due to flooding, continue operating from Suvarnabhumi Airport.

Thailand is fortunate to have a choice of destinations within the country, and some planners did divert events scheduled for Bangkok to Chiang Mai, Phuket and other destinations not affected. We are confident that the flooding situation will improve in a timely manner and that planners and organizers of business events can offer Thailand to your clients with complete certainty of trip delivery and program success.

Finally, please note that since November 17th, 2011 Thai Airways International connects Brussels and Bangkok three times per week (Tuesday, Thursday & Saturday) with a direct flight in a 777-200 ER aircraft with all modern facilities and the legendary Thai welcome on board. Thai Airways International is the only airline connecting Brussels to South-East Asia directly providing a key route to business travellers, tourists and international diplomats and officials alike.
