I arrived CM Friday night very healthy Sunday morning coughing badly and very painful when I cough, the nights are impossible with the cough and phlegm, this is the second time its happened to me I'm so sick I can't even advise the builder what to do or drive the wife to get building supplies, I'm out near San Kamphaeng all night I can smell smoke while trying to sleep i got medication yesterday,

But I dont think Tourists getting sick and nearly dying from the smoke will stop them comming

 

Air is among the best in the world currently.  If you have health issues then these need investigating, but air quality isn't the problem.  (Unless there is something out of the ordinary going on in the place you live, either indoors or the immediate area.)

Marketing manager at the Chiang Mai Orchid Hotel Watcharaporn Jongphaophan confirmed the bad news saying that bookings were 30% down and that rooms previously priced at 1,400 baht were now offered for 900 baht. 

 

There is also a group tour package for 9 rooms for 8,888 baht, she said. 

 

lol someone needs maths lessons..

 

i'll take the 9 rooms at 900 baht each please, that being 8100 not 8888!!

"would boost tourism by 6.02% among Thais"  Obviously, decimal points will add some credibility to numbers

Tourism can go down. They will just further raise prices, as food, normal massages and many things got more expensive here without considering the THB. I just do not get the logic. Less demand, prices rise.

 

did you read the OP?

 

prices are going down! price wars between hotels

 

Quote

Both small and large size hotels were struggling to stay afloat with a price war being waged to attract what tourists there are - rooms are being offered at 30-40% less than normal, she said.
