However, fast-forward a few weeks and the Kingdom is currently being deluged by the monsoon rains and swathes of the country from Ayutthaya to Chiang Rai are under metres of water!!!
Countless buildings have been damaged, roads washed away and acres of crops destroyed. The weather forecasts will do little to ease the worries of those already mopping up!!!
Having recently been in Chiang Mai and Chiang Rai, I saw first hand some of the problems that have been caused. However, Thai's are resilient folk and I know it will take more than a few drops of rain to dampen the spirits.
An in-depth look report of the flooding is available by clicking on the following link.....
