It's a subject I was about to write about somewhere in the near future, since the rainy season is about to start, or should I rather say, started already with a vengeance, see my Samui weather blog for more info, and a few weeks ago I already took this picture in front of Centara Samui hotel in Chaweng, a big warning sign on the beach, warning you about potential rip currents.
Each year, more people than you can imagine drown on Samui beaches, mainly Chaweng and Lamai beach, due to these rip currents and they don't make the international headlines!
Main victims are elderly people who get caught up in rip currents and who either don't have the strength or knowledge or both to get out of them rips.
So, Tezza, thanks for the informative post and I hope that plenty of people will read it.
