    Default Areas flooded in the Bangkok Metropolitan Area include suburbs in the east and west.

    Situation in Bangkok

    Areas flooded in the Bangkok Metropolitan Area include suburbs in the east and west, the west bank of the Chao Phraya River, and districts in the northern part of the city.

    In central Bangkok, businesses, hotels, shops and tourist attractions remain open as per normal in areas including:
    Khao San Road
    Ratchaprasong (Central World area)
    Phetchaburi Road
    Ploenchit/ Chidlom
    Siam Square/ MBK/ Siam Paragon
    Silom/ Surawongse
    Rama I Road
    Sukhumvit Road/ The Emporium
    Rama IV Road
    Yaowarat (Chinatown)

    Given the changing nature of the flooding situation in Bangkok, visitors should check multiple sources of information to make an informed decision about whether they should visit central Bangkok at the present time.

    The BTS Skytrain and MRT subway are operating normally. Some MRT stations have closed certain entrances as a precaution. Visitors are advised to check with the BTS and MRT regarding the current status of their operations. Taxis and tuk tuks are available although the number in service is reduced. Many BMTA bus routes have been rerouted or suspended due to the flooding. Express boat services on the Chao Phraya River have also been suspended, as have most water-related tourist activities.


    Suvarnabhumi Airport:
    Suvarnabhumi Airport, the main international gateway to Thailand, remains open. It has considerable flood protection measures in place. Suvarnabhumi Airport is the main connector for international arrivals to domestic flights serving tourist destinations throughout Thailand such as Phuket, Chiang Mai and Surat Thani. Domestic flights are operating as per normal between Suvarnabhumi Airport and other airports in Thailand.

    Transportation to and from the airport into central Bangkok including taxis, buses and the Airport Rail Link have not been affected by the floods and are operating normally. Highways from the airport to tourist destinations southeast of Bangkok such as Pattaya, Rayong and Ko Chang are open.

    Don Mueang Airport, the old international airport, still remains closed due to flooding. The two domestic airlines based at Don Mueang continue operating from Suvarnabhumi Airport.

    A “Tourist Assistance Center” on the 3rd floor of Airport Rail Link’s Makkasan Station is facilitating tourists’ transport from hotels in central Bangkok to the airport. Tourists who would like to use this service can contact the Tourist Assistance Center via the TAT Call Center at 1672, or the Tourist Police at 1155.

    State Railway of Thailand and inter-provincial bus services:
    State Railway of Thailand (SRT) and inter-provincial bus services are operating as per usual in areas that are not affected by the floods. In Bangkok and other areas affected by the floods, the SRT and inter-provincial bus service operators are adjusting their routes to best serve passengers given the disruptions caused by the flooding. Inter-provincial buses from Bangkok to southern provinces are leaving from a temporary station at the car park of the Holland Beer House on Rama II Road in the southwest part of Bangkok.

    Train services to northeastern Thailand are operating as per normal. Train services to the northern provinces are operating between Hua Lamphong Station in central Bangkok and Chiang Mai. Trains to the north are being rerouted around flooded areas, adding approximately two hours of travel time. Train services to the southern provinces are operating mainly from Nakhon Pathom due to flooding in Bangkok’s western suburbs. The SRT is providing shuttle bus services between Hua Lamphong Station and Nakhon Pathom. Travelers are advised to check in advance with these operators and may want to consider flying to their destinations within Thailand.
