Jomtien - High & (Relatively) Dry

Thailand is undergoing some of the worst flooding in history and the news is front & center on BBC, CNN and other International news outlets.

The news is dire for many parts of the country and we encourage everyone to donate whatever they can to flood relief efforts.

Jomtien Beach and Pattaya have been largely spared from this ongoing disaster.

In the past few days, there has been a major influx of visitors (presumably from Bangkok) staying at area hotels. Traffic coming from Bangkok is noticeably higher.

For those wishing to "bug out" from Bangkok, the good news is that there are still hotel rooms available here.

For International visitors, the airport is still open and routes to Pattaya are still clear. The Thai economy will take a major hit from this event, do your part visit Thailand soon!
