A man look out to an flooded and empty intersection in Bangkok, on November 11, 2011. The Thai capital, built on swampland, is slowly sinking and the floods currently besieging Bangkok could be merely a foretaste of a grim future as climate change makes its impact felt, experts say.

Areas of Thailand continue to be submerged after 3 months of severe flooding. There have been over 500 deaths as a result of the floods. The government recently offered help in the form of tax breaks, to businesses that have been affected from the floods.
