Hua Hin, Thailand
Every day we hear news about the flooding in Thailand on our national broadcasting channels. We hear that the situation in Bangkok is very critical. But the International Airport Suvarnabhumi in Bangkok and the roads to Hua Hin are still open. Japanese experts are monitoring Suvarnabhumi Airport daily.
Protection of the airport has the same priority as Siriraj Hospital where the King resides at this moment.
Many people have left Bangkok and moved to Hua Hin and other towns. They have rented a house, live in a hotel or guesthouse or live in their own condo or apartment. Tourists and local people are safe in Hua Hin, Cha-am and Pranburi.
All these people have to eat while they are here. As results there is a shortage of beer and Coca Cola. Malaysia helps out and is sending supplies to Thailand.
More information about the floods can be found on the website of the Bangkok Post, a news paper in English.
We keep you updated.
