It was really bad yesterday.  Supposed to be rain through Tuesday.  All the normal flood spots in town are affected.  Seen alot more damage this time than ever before.  Walls collapsing, signs and trees down.  Businesses and homes flooded that previously haven't had issues when it rains.

 

It was some of the hardest sustained rain have seen in Pattaya in 10+ years.

Well

If you're that confident of the depth, then I guess SM78 won't need to pack a snorkel.

Or is it DM78?

 

I'm  betting typo.

And Likes, My Friend, beget Likes.

Good luck in Patts, I'm sure the inimitable Locals will be open for business, with an umbrella, or a carry to the Baht Bus (or upstairs?) as required.

One thing you can count on, this Town is always open.

:)

The water isn't really the issue, just be more aware of mosquitoes at night, because there will be more places for them to breed etc.  I found a beastie in my room last week, haven't seen one that size for years.  Some people are more susceptible to bites than others ;-).

Drinking Tonic water is good also, has trace amounts of quinine in it.  I also found that drinking Guinness is useful, it contains Vitamin B which repels the mossies also.

Yes hellahose the foreign Guinness is lovely, a little more pokey than the standard, have yet to see it in pattaya :).  Failing that I guzzle a few jars of Brains Stout in the Queen Vic :)

 

I would like to stress if you have consulted a Doctor before your trip, had vaccinations etc ignore his advice for Larium.  Pattaya is not an malaria area and you don't need to take it.  It does more harm than good.

 

Just be aware the little blighters are about at night time :).

Don't normally need an exuse for either Guiness or a G&T Fenton, so I am going to give your tip a real good try . :)

Never take anti-malaria drugs these days. I think it's pretty useless unless camping out in the jungle for weeks. Better to take the drugs when you actually catch it. I'm much more concerned about dengue fever. Seen quite a few people who caught that and it ain't pretty. Knocks you out for weeks. But nothing much you can do about it but cross your fingers. And drink G&T and Guinness B)

  If you do a web search you will find the vitamin B and mosquitos thing is a myth. However drinking lots of Guinness has it's own merits. :)

 

 The water was about two and a half feet deep on Soi Lake Chaiyapoon.

How did soi Lengkee fare? Same as Chaiyapoon? Can't remember if it's higher or lower.

  There was plenty of water in the Buakhao end of Soi Lengkee but I'm not sure about the rest of the soi. Although I looked at that end of Lengkee yesterday after you posted. That end does run pretty much downhill toward Buakhao except for a little rise right at Buakhao. I walked down Buakhao toward Action Street and crossed the Buakhao/Lengkee/Diana intersection on the Lengkee side in farily deep water. But that side was better than the Diana side, even though the water was deeper, as the water was rushing down Diana so fast I thought it might take my feet out from under me.
