Operators said that no wonder tourism in Chiang Mai had gone down from 5 million to half that number of visitors. These shocking operators ripping people off should be investigated, they said.
 
They termed the social media coverage from China as "very damaging"

Greed has killed the tourism industry.... and still they try to get the last baht out of another fiasco!

Well that's another billion plus potential tourists who are going to see this on the news and possibly think about not visiting Thailand. Then next month the TAT will release a drive to capture the Indonesian tourist market. Or the Mexican tourist market. Soon there won't be any countries left.

There are so many Indians and Chinese more to come here. The number of tourists from these countries will increase enormous the next 10-15 years. What we see now is just the beginning. Europeans will loose their importance for the Thai tourism market.

Never heard of a Khom Loi causing a major problem. But the lack of them is destroying Loi Krathong

Interesting , so the rumours I have been hearing are turning out to be true ! Was there by any chance more than one of this type of event.

Yes there was. About 4 such organized events on Loy Krathong.

Found this one, but the venue was changed from Cowboy Riding Club at Mae Rim (north) to Chiang Mai Air Sport (south) at the last minute ........ really dodgy, prices 4,500-6,300.

6000 baht is a lot of Yuan these days. The Yuan Baht rate follows the same nosediving line as all the other currencies.

Not quite.  As the Baht rises—so does the Yuan.  And, of course—the USD goes down.
