Actually; living in Chiang Mai we are very happy that we have the place back to ourselves, the roads are clear for the most part and Shops, Restauarants and Cafe's are uncrowded, a much more pleasant situation for Local's undependant on Tourism.   Not nice for those who are dependant on Tourism but there is going to have to be readjustment for a 'New Normal' as it's never going to be what it was.

I'm alright Jack.

With normal, rational, decent, compassionate, wise and competent officials, this kind of event would encourage humility, stimulate a learning process, and lead toward improved treatment of tourists and ex-pats.

 

Here? These small minded fools just do not seem capable of evolution. The word regressive comes to mind. 

I have proper words for em, Mike, but glad you can show restraint.

Drug market ....!!!!!

Seems, you have never been to CM...

 

I’ve been in CM a few days ago and nowhere, I got offers to buy Marihuana.

... something, that is constantly happening on Pattaya’s Beach Road and on Walking Street after the lifting of the lockdown.

Back in the day chang Mai was considered a part of the golden triangle where a lot of heroin would come through .

Ironic they pick the China market as a backdrop to the emptiness is this a subliminal message or a thank you to our Chinese friends 🤔 

1 third of the foreign tourism income in CM pre-Covid came from the Chinese.

 

And different to Pattaya or Phuket, 70% of those Chinese didn’t come with the infamous zero-baht-tours, but were from the FIT category, spending considerably more....

It still happens and is one of the main smuggling routes for ya ba coming in from China . Not to say CM is a drugs paradise it’s just a smuggling route and is where a lot of the hill tribe people make their money .
