The view from the 8th tee at one of Chiang Mai’s golf courses. This is how it should look in the beautiful November weather!
The morning mist surrounding Doi Suthep mountain and the clarity of the photo.
This is what it is like today, you can’t even see the mountain, would you want to play golf in these conditions? Thick smog blankets Chiang Mai.
Chiang Mai Smog – Every year the authorities promise to do something about it, every year they fail miserably driving tourists away to tell the friends,families, colleagues that Chiang Mai is a no go unsafe detrimental to health destination.
This is worth showing again,from 2012!
This video shows how appalling conditions are at the moment in the north of Thailand thanks to uncontrolled burning and then goes on to show what the weather should be like.
This uncontrolled burning occurs just about every year from December often through to April with Feb/March being the worst months with very little done to combat it by the authorities.
