Jirasak Sunmee, manager at the Samui Resotel, said that on hearing the warnings from the southern met office and seeing the turbulent waves and dark clouds he instructed staff to gather up all beach chairs and the like.

Flags were hoisted and the beach staff were manned with ropes and buoyancy devices as some tourists still insisted on ignoring warnings and entered the water.

Earlier in the week a Chinese tourist drowned on Koh Samed and that was in calm waters.
