Koh Samui backpackers think filthy flood is their own personal waterpark (VIDEO)

Despite Koh Samui continuing to suffer from heavy rains and flooding, some tourists will not be deterred from having the best vacation ever. These backpackers even decided to “go with the flow” and let the flooding add to their good time by using the flooded streets as their own personal water park.

Nothing can dampen the spirits of these two intrepid Brits. Huge flood? No problem! The lads dug out their pool floats and dove into the flood’s mini waves in the middle of road, ignoring the motorists struggling through it around them.

“It’s raining and flooding but the farangs are still having fun,” said the local who posted the video in the caption

A concerned Thai man warned the tourists in the comments section in English: “Hey, there’s a lot of dirty things in floodwater. It may have gotten into your dick by now, man. [Eggplant emoji]”

And these two guys aren’t alone in their enjoyment of the flood. Another tourist was caught on camera in a pink tube near Choeng Mon Beach casually sipping a beer and taking selfies while floating through the filthy flood having an awesome time.

Since the situation is pretty severe and flights to and from Koh Samui are being suspended, kudos to the people who are still making the most out of their vacay, unlike these Khaosan backpackers who laid in the floodwater just because they wanted to.
