Wettersituation Koh Samui Phuket Stand 01.04.11

The wea­ther in sou­thern Thai­land is sho­wing signs of impro­ve­ment, and things are star­ting to return to nor­mal. Howe­ver, the­re is still some dis­rup­ti­on.

The cur­rent situa­ti­on is as fol­lows:


The air­port and all major roads remain open.

The rough sea con­di­ti­ons are pre­ven­ting smal­ler boats from ope­ra­ting, so all of our island tours and speed boat trips are can­cel­led until fur­ther noti­ce.

Lar­ge fer­ries from Phu­ket to Koh Phi Phi are still ope­ra­ting as nor­mal.

Koh Samui:

The floods in Cha­weng, Lamai, Maenam and Bophut are star­ting to rece­de, alt­hough water levels are still qui­te high. Vehi­cles can now dri­ve around most of the island, albeit with cau­ti­on, hence jour­ney times are lon­ger than expec­ted.

Samui air­port is back to almost full capa­ci­ty, and most stran­ded pas­sen­gers have been trans­fer­red off the island. Any peop­le who are left should be able to lea­ve very soon.

Fer­ries to /​ from the main­land and Koh Samui are now ope­ra­ting again.

Fer­ries from the main­land to /​ from Koh Pha Ngan are now ope­ra­ting again.

Only fer­ries to /​ from Koh Tao, and bet­ween Koh Samui and Koh Pha Ngan are sus­pen­ded – but the­se are expec­ted to resu­me ope­ra­ti­ons tomor­row.

As the sea is still too rough for small boats to ope­ra­te safe­ly, all of our boat trips and sea excur­si­ons around Samui are can­cel­led until fur­ther noti­ce.


All fer­ries were ope­ra­ting as usu­al this morning, but were forced to stop their ser­vices this after­noon due to bad wea­ther.  We expect that they should be ope­ra­ting as nor­mal tomor­row unless the wea­ther wor­sens signi­fi­cant­ly over­night.

All of our sea excur­si­ons around Kra­bi are sus­pen­ded until fur­ther noti­ce.

Kra­bi and Trang air­ports are still open and ope­ra­ting as nor­mal.
