The flooding in Thailand is now affecting a large part of Bangkok with the waters expecting to reach a high on 26 October 2011. Tourist areas such as the Grand Palace, Wat Po and Khao San road have still not been affected. Bangkok International Airport remains open and is operating as normal with very low risk of flooding.
Due to the current situation in Bangkok, we will divert all tours away from Bangkok until 3 November 2011. After this date the situation will be re-assessed and a decision will be made on the tours commencing the weekend of 5-6 November 2011.
Status of tours to Thailand:
GTBC - Beachcomber - 30 October
GTLS - Laos & Cambodia - 2 November
GTLC - Highlights of Laos - 2 November
If you're booked onto one of these tours you will be contacted by our representative who will provide you with further information. All tours to depart after 3 November 2011 will run as scheduled.
There has been flooding in central Vietnam which has caused the cancellation of the public train between Hue and Hanoi.
Status of tours in Vietnam:
No tours have been affected and all tours are running as scheduled.
Heavy rain in Cambodia has caused flooding in many areas of the country especially around the Tonle Sap (lake) and Mekong River.
Status of tours in Cambodia:
All trips are running as scheduled. For the comfort and safety of guests some minor amendments have been made to itineraries. In Siem Reap the highlight temples of Angkor Wat, Angkor Thom and Ta Prohm are all accessible. However, some road works are underway to repair flood damaged areas. The Old Market and Pub Street area of Siem Reap has flooding but businesses are still operating as usual. We recommend clients bring rubber sandals or flip flops for walking around wet streets.
