What measures are in place to assist tourists who might be affected by the floods?

•Regular transportation to Suvarnabhumi Airport including taxis, airport limousines, and hotel vans are still operating and the motorway from inner Bangkok to the airport is open as per normal. The elevated Airport Rail Link is also fully operating from Phaya Thai Station and Makkasan Station in central Bangkok to the airport.

•Bangkok is a large and flat city, so the flood waters are moving from the northern districts towards the inner city very slowly. This gives tourists who chose to visit inner Bangkok considerable time to evaluate the flood conditions and make their own travel arrangements.

•To facilitate tourists’ transport from hotels in central Bangkok to the airport, a “Tourist Assistance Center” has been set up on the 3rd Floor of Airport Rail Link’s Makkasan Station, open between 06:00-18:00 hours. The TAT and Thai Hotels Association (THA) provide transportation from the hotels to the Makkasan Station of the Airport Rail Link. The Tourist Police will assist tourists at Makkasan Station and at the airport. Tourists in Thailand can contact the Tourist Assistance Center via the TAT Call Center at 1672, or through the Tourist Police at 1155.
