    UPDATE: Bangkok goes on with its daily routine, for now:confused:

    Hotels and airlines are bracing for the possibility of flooding in central Bangkok, which seems imminent. For now, it has not been affected by the floods that have swept through several areas of northern Thailand.

    The Pacific Asia Travel Association (PATA) assured travellers in a statement saying that there is no need to change travel plans.

    “As you are aware from TV and media reports, some parts of Thailand are experiencing much heavier than usual seasonal flooding," said PATA chief executive Bill Calderwood. "However, central Bangkok and the majority of its suburban areas are functioning normally. All of Thailand’s airports are operating normally, including Suvarnabhumi International Airport in Bangkok. There has been no disruption to BTS skytrain, the MRT underground and public transport systems. All hotels in the city and major tourism attractions are also operating normally.”

    Hopefully it will have subsided when I'm due there late next month. But my thoughts and prayers are with those who are affected by the flooding.:(
