via Bangkok Post, 09 October 2017: We’ve been getting heavy rains in Bangkok and other parts of Thailand, with some floods already reported. Ayutthaya has previously been susceptible to floods, and there have been some mitigation measures put in place – it remains to be seen if they can last this year’s downpour.
Ayutthaya local authorities and officers from the Ayutthaya Historical Park have built a flood defence wall to prevent damage to archaeological sites.
