Maybe those are Japanese owned restaurants?

 

 

 

 

Thai-owned, no doubt at all.

There's a sizeable corps of Japanese expats here. They are probably eating somewhere. But they are sticklers for authenticity.

I would be willing to bet that every one of the "Japanese" restaurants in Central Festival are Thai owned.

How do you know this fact?

 

Perhaps it's because in Thailand, ALL businesses must be majority-owned by Thais. 51% by law.

About 3 years ago I met a nice Japanese lady who worked assisting Japanese expats and their children, and was in regular contact with the Japanese Consulate. At the time she told me there were about 6,000 (registered with the Consulate - maybe more) Japanese, living and working in Chiang Mai.

 

Yes, they are eating somewhere - but not at the the Thai "Japanese-style" restaurants.

Jesus, Mary and Joseph the point of the original post, Chinese tourists swarming in Thailand got off topic as usual. Who gives a fiddler's fart about the etnicity of the restaurants in Central Festival or elsewhere for that matter??? There are more Chinese tourists crawling about in Chiang Mai than there are ants at an outdoor picnic these days. This response is based in my observations in and around Tapae Gate, Maya Lifestyle Mall, Central Festival and those I see on motorscooters. Hopefully this will get the OP back on track, but I doubt it given the number of sheer numbers of posts off topic.

So many Chinese. Subs, armored vehicles. PM in love with that country. Maybe they should change the name of Thailand to Chinland.

No use in hold off the inevitable.

Have not been to night safari for a few years the kids wanted to go again so we went around 15:30 on Sunday  as I remember the last time it was quite empty and walking around the lake was enjoyable ,this time though there where many many Chinese tourist  it was not unpleasant  but having large groups of people made less enjoyable for the kids .
