Went to a Kan Toke dinner at a cultural  village where the food was rubbish,

I was sent to one of those my first week in Chiang Mai.

Left after 5 minutes, didn't need to wait for the food to know it was awful.

Half Moon bar in Moonmuang Soi 2 was much more fun.

Welll, good. Now they have no reason to come back. lol

As much as I do not like how some of the Chinese tourists behave, I do not hope they will stop coming. The economy is bad enough as it is. I feel sorry for small business operators who would suffer without the money coming in from tourists.

Good for the Chinese not putting up with this sort of treatment. Plenty of people bad mouth them, here is an opportunity to praise them.

Sadly, the bad-mouthing is well deserved. That aside, nobody deserves to be deliberately ripped off.

the commissions paid to the many parties involved on these excursions do not allow a decent budget for the actual activity.
e.g. chinese guides now demand for 50% commission on jewelry shops (normally 30%) so prices go up for everybody.

If they had stayed in Chiang Mai City near the Taipei Gate they would have witnessed the spectacular parade of floats, like the one depicted below, for FREE!
