Thai caption: It's now cold in the mountains

 

Sanook painted a rosy picture for tourism in the north of Thailand saying that excitement was mounting as the cool season had arrived and temperatures were plummeting. 

 

Now the rains are all but over the tourists are expected to visit the north in droves enjoying cooler weather on the plains and especially cool in the hills. 

 

Thailand's tallest peak is Doi Inthanon at 2,565 meters. A temperature of 6 degrees celsius was recorded there though the visitor center was still 15 degrees. 

 

Sanook said the morning temperature on the plains of the north was 20-22C.

ok, all sounds good but what's the point.... I didn't get it
The Thais call it "cold" sometimes there is even frost on the grass then it becomes a magical event with thousands flocking to the mountain top to get a glimse [emoji39]

Cool air brings temperature inversions & trapped pollution in the valley at night.  Yippee 🙂

Cool season? We are not as high as Don Inthanon but our temperature range today was from 22-34C. Have been here when it was 5C in the morning at this time of the year.

They get a hard one on seeing frost basically, as close as it gets to snow.
Many locals drive up the mountain, to crash on the way back down (half frozen roads), just to see it.
