Koh Samui, Thailand daily weather update; 6th November, 2011
Koh Samui's sky has opened up again today and there aren't as many clouds as yesterday. Current temp at 7am is 24.6C
The forecast remains remarkably good with just a few isolated showers predicted for the enxt 7 days and plenty of sunshine towards the end of that 7 day period.
Yesterday saw Koh Samui clouded but dry Max temp reached 31.6C
The famous 'Walking Street' in Pattaya
Today I will still be in Pattaya with a flight back to Samui scheduled for tomorrow afternoon. It looks like we're going to have another enjoyable day here as well. with plenty of sunshine. Current temp at 7am is 26.3C
Yesterday saw also a nice day with plenty of sunshine in the greater Pattaya area. Max temp reached 30.3C. My friends with whom I'm travelling did an aquarium dive at the local 'Underwater world aquarium'.
In the meantime the situation in Bangkok remains critical and there's still plenty of speculation that the entire city will flood and more areas in the western part of the city are being evacuated.
Humanitarian aid experts say that poor coordination between the government and international organisations, including the United Nations, is hurting flood relief efforts.
Suvarnabhumi airport is still operating as usual and is expected to remain unaffected throughout the whole time period of flooding around Bangkok.
Here's another good picture gallery to watch. Some of the pictures bring the desperation and misfortune rather well.
If you're still planning to visit the Kingdom, I can recommend my Samui and my Thailand hotel booking blogs and you will indirectly help me out keeping this blog in the air.
