For several days, all of Thailand has suffered a cold snap, lowering its temperature from the usual 30° to 20°, a difference of 10°!
This phenomenon is particularly noticeable in the south and in the north of the country, where heavy rains have fallen. At the root of all this is the tropical storm Temblin, which after touching the Philippines where it caused the death of more than 180 people, is now heading for Vietnam and southern Thailand. This tropical storm should be downgraded to a tropical depression in the coming days. Some of the southern areas most affected by heavy rains include Prachuap Khiri Khan, Chumphon, and Surat Thani.
This climatic episode is ill-timed since the month of December is the where the greatest number of tourists come to Thailand, Bangkok, and the southern islands for end of year celebrations.
