Why would anyone unless they were totally blind to the facts of air pollution visit the North?

 

It should be pointed out there was major GRIM NEWS on the northern tourism front last year. And this took place BEFORE the heavy smoke, pollution came in on the hot season.

 

Shock, Gasp Horror!  😮                              Say What?

 

Over fifty hotels were up for sale by December 2018, likely a low ball figure at that. The Thai hotels Association, northern chapter, was spinning so hard they were turning green. This the result of massive overbuilding, influx of out of province cash chasing the next gold rush. Yes the boat accident deep sixed those Celestial Dreams, but if that magically did not happen, still too many hotels for the demand.

 

And after all that came the smoke.

International trade wars? Hasn’t affected me. Can’t remember anyone blaming the trade wars for not visiting Thailand. Let’s just say that the Thai baht is overpriced...

the thing about it is people need to be able to breathe.

Yes, it's too obvious but they still don't get it.

Someone's dancing the Cha-Cha with the ChiComs, a bit too much.  So tourists go elsewhere.     

There's reds under your bed even as we speak.

 

Mr McCarthy was right.

 

70 years ago though.
