I have never understood the enjoyment of sitting on sand and looking at water 

Beaches.

Its also not just the Thais who earn a living from the tourist industry that are affected . Those that usually earn money from the tourist industry are not spending that money in the local econom

What are the tourist attractions that other towns  have, that CM doesnt have ?

Before the days when every one lived in an air-conditioned house, drove in an air-conditioned car to work in their air-conditioned office, the great attraction of Chiang Mai was the climate.  Coupled with the mountains, country-side and hill-tribes.  When I lived there, there was only one set of traffic lights in the whole city.  Those were the good old days.,,,,,,,,,,,,

I think CM was recently voted as the top, or one of the top places for Thais to visit.  Not sure why, visit a few temples and waterfalls nothing new for Thais the place seems a total bore.

I second that i been there a  few times never enjoyed it boring as hell lacks a beach. I never even noticed it was any cooler either.

Looks real good for me I can get places without being in a traffic jam. I can also look at store fronts and actually see what the stores are selling. The places I do go are half full of Thai customers and a few foreign people. Yes the business is slower than it was but there are plenty of buildings going up, farming is good and if one wants to work one can in CM.

I am sure the CCP is happy to compensate for the damage they caused. Just call their great leader.

Chiang Mai is going to end up at a dead end before the year is out. And the few remaining tourism businesses will be unable to bring in any visitor numbers when the pandemic restrictions are eased. We are watching total incompetence cause a wilderness. 

Same can be said of Pattaya , Ko Samui , Pukett and a few other places that depend on tourists
