Koh Samui, Thailand daily weather update; 29th October, 2011

Today's weather;

The sky over Koh Samui is looking good again. A slightly cloudy sky with blue spots in and a current temp at 7am of 28C

Yesterday saw a very nice and sunny day around Samui. Max temp reached 30.3C

It's fairly quiet around the island but weather conditions are excellent and the whole Bangkok flood situation seems literally 670 km away. The forecast for the next 7 days remains very good with plenty of sunshine and hardly any rain at all.

If you're planning to visit Koh Samui, please have a look at my Samui hotel recommendation blogwith first hand knowledge of many local hotels and by booking on this site, by using the Agoda orHotels Combined buttons you help me indirectly maintaining my blog. There are also my beloved beer buttons around the blog and a donation button can be found on the top left of this blog, in case you find my blog helpful. Don't be shy!
If you plan to travel around the country, my Thailand hotel recommendations blog may be helpful.

Yesterday's view over to Koh Phangan, near Nathon

If I counted correctly, this must be the third weekend that Bangkok can or should or would be flooded. It seems this weekend is the most likely 'weekend of truth' in that respect. Today is the peak period for high tides and if you happen to be in Bangkok, be careful near rivers and canals during the high tides. It would be nice if 'all stayed quiet at the Bangkok front' today.

The general situation hasn't changed much, Bangkokians who can afford it have fled the city over the weekend and at some areas people are trying to hike prices because of the floods.

More bottled drinking water is being imported from Malaysia at the moment and the city's international airport Suvarnabhumi is still operating as usual and doesn't expect any major problems that may interrupt their services.

I can only hope for the flood situation to subside and for everything go back to normal as soon as possible.
