Hey guys, me and my friend are making our way down to koh pha ngan on the 16th of april and are just wondering whether its still safe to stay there.
we heard the terrible news about the floods and are still cautious as to where not to go if there still are places that are still unaccommodating.
Its been real hard to get a genuine and definite answer as regards to whats actually happened and i'd be really grateful if anyone has any news and/or advice on what to be aware of when down in the south.

Other Provinces in Thailand
Most provinces in Thailand were not affected by the flood. No provinces in the south, north, and northeast of Thailand are affected by the flood. The flooding has subsided in most of the central provinces including Ang Thong, and Chai Nat. Cleanup operations are underway.
Manufacturers and distributors have re-established stable supply lines for consumer products. Local brands of bottled water and beer are available in most locations, as are imported brands of bottled water and beer.
Highway 35, a major route to the south also known as Rama II Road, will remain open to destinations to the south such as Hua Hin, Cha-Am and Chumphon, as well as to the west such as Kanchanaburi and Ratchaburi.
