Incredible video, read about floods in news but to see images in your video is to really appreciate the amount of water around.
Thanks for taking the time to make this and your other videos, I'm enjoying seeing videos of Thailand.

Thanks glad you liked it. Rushed this one because I just wanted to get it out today. Very rough going here for lots of follks and the rest of us are holding our breath.

On a lighter note I'm also working on a video from last weeks Cambodia trip.

Good luck to us all

Canoli.

Hey Canoli!

Great vid and report!

Funny- I did the exact same "reconnaissance" ride about 10 days ago and again a few days after that- and yeah, it's a mess!

Dunno why I can't get vids to embed in the Asia sub-forum. Works fine in other sections of advrider, but not in the Asia section... Weird...

Here's the route I took:




Link for anyone who's interested- http://maps.google.c...,5,7,8&t=m&z=12

Central Bangkok remains dry but the water keeps slowly pushing its way in.

On the 23rd there was no water anywhere along Thanon Pradit Manudarm (Ram Intra Expressway)

Ram Intra (304) was bone dry except for where it crosses the Khlong Prapa Canal (Thanon Prachachuen) near Laksi:


The canal was overflowing and the roads in this area were under a foot or two of water, but traffic could still get through.

Continuing West on Chaeng Wattana (304) the road was again dry until you cross the bridge over the Chao Phraya river at Pak Kret:


After the bridge Chaiya Pruek road is closed and only very large trucks can continue.


Next I headed North-East on Tiwanon Road (306) in the direction of Pratum Thani. Tried again to head west towards Bang Bua Thong on the 307 but again, after crossing the river the road is closed. Here the water was so deep that only boats could proceed-


Backtracked to the 306 and continued NE until just after the Khlong Prapa Canal at which point the road is deeply flooded and closed-


End of the line- only boats can continue north from this point:


Tried to get back to Vipawadee-Rangsit via Thanon Song Prapa road but it was flooded just east of the canal-

Large trucks were still getting through though.



The above report is already dated as the situation changes from day to day, mostly for the worst.

So much conflicting information from the government it's hard to predict how much longer this will continue and how much more flooding there will be.

Good luck to everyone!!!
