The Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) has issued a statement warning against travel to Bangkok due to rising flood waters.
Residents in Bangkok are reported to be fleeing the city, ahead of an expected deluge this weekend, when the situation is expected to be exacerbated by seasonal high tides.
The FCO said “all but essential travel” should be cancelled or postponed to the city of Bangkok, and to 26 other Thai provinces affected by the flooding.
Transit through Bangkok’s Suvarnabhumi International Airport remains safe, however, with flights to and from the airport operating normally for now.
“Flights to destinations elsewhere in Thailand (eg the resorts of Chiang Mai, Pattaya, Phuket, and Koh Samui) continue to operate,” said the FCO.
Bangkok's domestic airport Don Muang has been forced to closer, however, after flood waters encroached on its periphery.
