Rainy Season Thailand

Rainy Season brings down-pours and floods. Thankfully not so strong in Bangkok this year, but in the Northern province of Naan there's been a lot of flooding. Just before the rice harvest too. Roads become rivers and cars become boats.

The markets also become more 'interesting' with all the electricity and wires running around, and water everywhere. It adds a bit of spice to life.

(I've updated this video since I first uploaded it, with some decent flooded road scenes. Imagine crossing that junction in the flip-flop shoes we wear in Thailand. We know the water may be filled with all kinds of bacteria, including some very serious ones caused by rat urine, and any cut or damage on the feet can let it in. Yet if you have to cross the road, you have to cross the road.)
