I think you had a better room in November.

Yes I too have had some different health issues  this year and it is affecting me far more this year that other before. But I have to agree with VF it is an unusually bad year with all the local mount

To be really really honest, it isn't. Only in the rainy season is the air clean in CR. Too many farmers and villagers burn fields and rubbish and plastic waste everyday.    Moving my family

The air is good here for 9 months of the year to be honest

Moving my family out of the north and settling in the south, has been a tough but good decision. You only live once. Maybe in the future, when the air in CR is clean, we can return.

After some deliberation, I declined my job offer in CR - I decided that my health was more important than a good job offer ....

Teaching scene is very poor up there...I used to spend a lot of time in CR and got to know it well, came close to buying a condo there, and glad I didn't.

This is us today. It ranks up there with some of our worst years.

I have to agree, I've been ill so it's probably affecting me more than usual but the rain cannot come soon enough.

Some of the numbers people post get pretty ridiculous at times.  I have read 4-6 or even 8-10, I fully expect someone to proclaim our air is bad bad bad bad bad bad bad 13-14 months a year.  I will acknowledged three months but usually not everyday.  A spot of rain clears things up for a few days and then it gets bad again.  I wish it were not this way but I am certainly not leaving.

rain is not effective against pm2.5. a massive heavy down pour of rain will only reduce it 5-10%.

the reality is the air is terrible anywhere in northern thailand for the majority of the year. same applies to the northeast as well. the only place somewhat decent is south of thailand. but even they are in danger some of the year because of the increase in burning nowadays in indonesia.

December hasn’t even started and air quality is deteriorating already. Riding around CR I see - and smell - a lot of burning. The smell is quite strong already. I hope it doesn’t mean that March/April 2020 will be as bad as they were this year, or I might be forced to leave for health reasons.......
