Tourists in Thailand have been left stranded as the country copes with heavy flooding.

Flights to Thailand have faced major disruption today (March 30th), as the south of the country is dealing with major flooding, it has been reported.

The Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) has warned British travellers in the region to avoid the Nakhon Sri Thammarat, Surat Thani, Phattalung, Chumphon, Trang and Satun regions.

Furthermore, Nakhon Sri Thammarat airport has been temporarily closed and flights are suspended due to runway flooding, while flights from Koh Samui airport are also disrupted.

Other popular tourist destinations, such as Kho Pha Ngan and Kho Tao have also been affected, while ferry services have also been hit.

Those in the affected areas are advised to follow the local authorities’ advice and keep up to date with local media reports and Thai Met office weather reports, the FCO advice said.

The disruption to the regions also includes problems with electricity and communications infrastructure, while the possibility of further flash floods and mudslides remains.
