BANGKOK, Thailand – Thousands of tourists were stranded as flights to and from Samui island were cancelled on Monday due to unusual heavy rain and strong winds that battered one of Asia’s famous tourist destinations.

Airline personnel are still not able to provide exact departure period for those stranded as bad weather continued into the night.

Roads in the densely touristed of Chaweng and fisherman village of Bophut are submerged in nearly a meter high flood waters.

Weather forecast by the Thai Meteorological Dept indicated prolonged rainfall until Wednesday although with lesser precipitation.

Compounding problems for international travellers are fully booked flights from Samui because it is peak tourist season in the island.

Airline personnel from Bangkok Airways, though, have said that passengers with international connections will be prioritized should conditions improve tomorrow.
