    This rockfall is on the road between Chaweng and Lamai

    yeah they are amazing pics

    Gotta love the 1st one and some good advice too: when wading chest height in water don't forget to take a umbrella, you never know it might start raining again and you wouldn't want to get wet.....5555

    Great looking pics there Rivo, I heard it is raining hard in Phuket as well. i currently have friends in Patong and Noy was going to ride the bike to meet then but doesn't want to ride in the rian she is seeing. My mates have also been kept to their hotel the whole trip as it is raining that bad.

    I can't believe those pics Rivo... looks more like an Earthquake than flooding...

    There was quite bad flooding there last October/November as well just before I went.... airport closed etc. But this looks even worse...
    My only experience was in a pie making factory managing the gravy team
