Not even 50 yet. I do keep up with times, and are using phones and computer in work on a daily basis. They are great tools.

As single traveller, sitting on the bus or train, I can surely condone the use of a mobile phone instead of magazines or books as you say. I do not agree with that they keep people connected better than ever. Today you use the word connected to symbolize a virtual world. people are not connected to each other, they just have multiple choices of communicating. In all other aspects this type of communicating, that unfortunately replaced real communication, is highly anti-social.

As I wrote already, great tools for work and quick for finding information. Unfortunately most people that use them, also missuse them. Only today, driving my daughter to school I saw 4 people while driving 7 km, that drove motorbike with one hand while clicking on the screen with the other. That´s just one example out of millions.

I use it as a tool, i can easily use line or whatsap to make calls with parents in the Netherlands. But yes there people misusing it. That is one thing for sure. I love the GPS on them (but use a grabber so i have my hands free)

 

I did not mean stuff like facebook. I don't use that but others do and like it. 

 

I have enough real communication and love using the phone.

Worry about the flowers,  I can’t even walk down a path in thailand because the people like to claim them to sell things on or park on or use for bins ,storage etc .  Don’t see them having uproar about that

GPS doesn’t work in countryside , unless you want to drive for two hours thru every Moobaan to get to ur destination, none of them are accurate maybe Waze sometimes

Never had a problem yet with google maps, granted I use it in BKK, Pattaya and Hua Hin not the outback. So can't say it works or not there. Google maps sees to be correct most of the time.

If you can't find your destination using a paper map (has worked for centuries) just goes to proof that 'smart phones' makes people stupid.

Not a place for a music festival, if they are serious about nobody walking in wildflower fields.   Besides, there is nothing responsibility in Thailand

The logistics at Singha Park here in Chiangrai are amazing, and considering the large number of visitors, they manage to keep any damage to the beautifully landscaped grounds to a minimum.  Great venue for outdoor events and a great place to hangout.🙏

It is a lovely place.  Fields of flowers are too inviting for selfie obsessed people

And for those with more physical urges, one of the better pizzas around at the Barn House Pizzeria up on the hill.

They do have some really good food at their restaurants and such a beautiful setting.

You can easily get some lovely shots without trampling the flowers. I took these last year. People in the lower shot are on a trail.

Facebook user Waruwat Torkaew posted the photo recently with a caustic caption that said: "What language should be used for these people to understand that nobody is allowed to enter the area? Do as you please is such a Thai thing."

I see the sign has Thai and English characters, so knowing the demographics of who are frequent travels in groups and large numbers to Thailand and have a reputation for this type of incident, I might suggest including the use of characters that were invented approximately in the year 100 CE by a man named Xu. I'm not confident that it would help, but at least those who are likely the worst offenders will be able to read the request.
