Now would be a good time to do something about the sidewalks in Nimman. Make a nice walking boulevard with wider side walks before the high season starts again in 2030

Too busy tearing+fixing up loy kroh for the rush of fellas looking for the old isaan "cuties"? and ladyboys.

Wife and I had a nice drive into town today.  Less traffic, markets not crowded, nice!  It can stay this way.

Hey, they are on Loi Kroh.  Rip them up, half repair them, and then leave!  👍

You forgot about the toxic polluted air and a lot of taxi / songtaew / tuk tuk drivers that overcharge and rip off tourists.  

 

 

 

 

Tuk tuk drivers along Thapae seem rather desperate nowadays.  Like Anutin, they seem to think all farang are tourists.  They see a farang and immediately go into "hard-sell" mode.  I wink, laugh, and wave my car keys at them.  Same tuk tuk drivers doing the same thing each time I visit the area.  No doubt all farangs look the alike.  You'd think they'd get tired of me grinning and waving my keys at them each time they start the old, "Where you go..." :laugh:

Smog and virus under control, no problem.

 

The government says so.

We are from the Government, we are here to help.  (LOL)

 

Seriously though, I rather the virus than the smoke / smoke.

Also has nothing to do with no drinking alcohol in the afternoon and the bars close at midnight and everything is to expensive. So all I can say is you brought it on yourselves. 

But maybe Chiang Mai just doesn't want the types of tourists who are drunk at 11AM? 

 

Without being sarcastic, is it expensive here?  I haven't noticed after being here for a few years .. but, we moved up from Bangkok so maybe its just a difference view.
