Bangkok braces for floodwaters

Heavy monsoons and rising flood waters of the lower Chao Phraya River have caused the evacuation of thousands of people from towns and villages. More than 250 people have been killed by monsoon rains in the past two months. As flood waters move downstream, the capital (Bangkok) is threatened with major flooding.

Travellers should be aware that serious flooding may disrupt essential services in Thailand's capital and surrounding areas.
