Welcome to Thailand.   1) Turn on a good quality air purifier with HEPA filter 2) PM2.5 indoor detector/monitor will tell you when the air quality is bad 3) Seal up your doors and

Change is taking place Yom, slowly but surely, a few years ago there was no burning ban and people couldn't care less. Today there are bans and people are starting to care, it's not perfect but it is

Concerning Bangkok,                                                   Today, March 19  2020


I wouldn't say an AQI 53 to 114 in Bangkok is a good thing (13 ug/m3 to 41 ug/m3),

but up North an AQI 157 to 294 (67 ug/m3 to 244 ug/m3 or more)

is a bit different. Today up to AQI 412 - image.png.a17be961e20649c560246ee67cdd73d0.png.

And this is the wider Chiang Mai and Chiang Rai Area.

Same Same.  -  Since several days.


What is the responsible Government in Bangkok going to do?

Not responsible for the particulate matter-thing, PM2.5?

[We're so busy with Covid, sorry.]

If you will do nothing in the PM2.5 matter I hope that the evil ghosts will visit you

and all of your greedy friends this night or tomorrow and each night in the future.


P.S. Dear Mr Prayut, if you should read this.

Perhaps you didn't have any idea about the situation up North?

So, sorry.

Here is only one link:


You are by heart invited to read these posts on this website - Thaivisa - too.

Would be a good idea too to come and take a deep breath 

somewhere between CM and CR, OK, not only for a minute ...


Thank You , Mr Prime Minister and Take Care, of Yourself

and this beautiful country with its wonderful people.




This Land is Your Land

Here are daily air quality data (Oct. 2014 - March 2020) from Bergamo, Lombardia.

Bergamo seems to be the center of the Covid-catastrophe in Italy.

I'm sure that the bad air is not the only reason for this development, but of course,

there might a context.

You can compare this picture with the historical air quality data of your place.

It's to find via   https://aqicn.org/here

information on Thaivisa-News.

i suffered the previous 2 years.... didn't want to leave "home" in the North.   Finally had enough

to motivate me to take a long vacation. AQI almost always in the green.  My sinuses can live free again...... and are begging me to make the move permanent.

But now, like everyone else,  we are at the mercy of some virus.
