I just got some new updated information. We also have nice beaches in other provinces of Thailand like, Petchaburi (Cha Am and Hua Hin Beaches) Surattanee, Nakorn Srithammarat, especially Satun where the sea corals are still in 100% condition. The resorts there are still opening and waiting for guests to visit. They have never been affected even for one square inch by Tsunami but they are dying for missing of visitors.
FYI, there are only some provinces down south that the Tsunami attacked, i.e. Phuket, Panga, Krabi, and Trang. The rest of Thailand is still in perfect condition.
In additional to the beaches and the sea, please also consider the northern part of Thailand. This time is the nicest time to be there. Next month, from 4 to 6 Feb, we will have flower festival in Chiangmai.
Please remain with the plan if you already have it for Thailand. Those who survive have to live on. By traveling, the way we used to do, we can help them to live on. Thank you all very much for not adding oil to the fire.
