Jelly fish?

Wondering if there have been any sightings of jelly fish in Khao lak lately? And if any deadly poisonus box jelly fish have ever been seen there to date. A bit worried after that Swedish lady died in Cha amh last week...

There are no jelly fish around at the moment and there have not been any presence of box jelly fish at all in Khao Lak to date as far as I am aware.

Swedish media have reported quite a lot about the Box Jelly Fish in Thailand during the last weeks. These stories can of course be frightening to us tourists with no knowlege about this.

So glad to hear nothing unusual or dramatic is going on in Khao Lak.

Hi

it seems like it was a false alarm, According to the swedish foreign department she did not die of a jelly fish sting. It was a false alarm, they did not tell the reason of death.
