Chiang Mai: More doom and gloom tourism assessments from the Chamber of Commerce

The president of the Chiang Mai Chamber of Commerce said that all sectors of the economy were suffering greatly, not just tourism.

 

Figures suggested that a staggering 100 billion baht had gone missing from the Chiang Mai economy in the first three quarters. 

 

Warodom Pitkanon indicated that government stimulus measures had proved thoroughly inadequate. 

 

People were not spending, investors had disappeared and what little money there was in the economy was not trickling down to an increasingly desperate population.

As regards the tourism sector, domestic tourism was merely a stop gap. 

 

It might mean that some businesses would be saved from going to the wall. 

 

It was a return to foreign tourist revenue that was needed but he acknowledged that was fraught with difficulty.

 

More and more of the economy is simply shutting down in Chiang Mai and the government needs to do more to help with the dire situation especially promoting holiday times and festivals, he said.

Wait until the burning returns, that increases in severity every year~even Thai people won't go there.

We were going to set up a little guesthouse situation on our land in the mountains, but the increased burning put an end to that.

our are joking right, burning doesn't hold a candle to what is happening at present

Just another nail in the coffin. Next year will again be the worst year on record, regardless, making Thailand hub of most polluted city on the planet.🤑

Lol what a big BS. That idea has nothing to do with the burning at all, high season isn't even during the burning season. Real reason an end was put to it, is because it was a foolish idea from starters, with so many hotels around already.

Totally wrong, yes the burning season is during high season. It lasts for several months now.
