Thailand Floods: Travel Advice


Planning a trip to Thailand? Have one booked and not sure if you will be able to go?

While Don Mueang Airport, Thailand’s former main international airport, now used mainly for domestic flights of low-cost airlines, has been affected by the flooding in the Thai capital of Bangkok, the new main international airport, Suvarnabhumi, remains dry and authorities are confident that the flood defences in place will keep it that way.

As of November 7th 2011, the Foreign and Commonwealth Office advised that Suvarnabhumi Airport in Bangkok, remains open for transit and that although Bangkok is not an ideal destination at this time, plenty of other areas remain unaffected by flooding including Chiang Mai, Phuket and Koh Samui.
