Sunday – and the cyclone coming from Burma is going through Chiang Mai. Lots of rain – but not continuous, cooling and refreshing. With each clearing, the beautiful towering white clouds and deep blue sky really set Chiang Mai alive.
We’re also getting ready to celebrate:
” The Kingdom of Thailand celebrates Wan Chatramongkhol (Coronation Day) on Friday, May 5 which marks the 60th anniversary of the Coronation of His Majesty King Bhumibol Adulyadej the Great.“
Check out the full story from the Chiang Mai Mail.
The Kad Suan Kaew Shopping center is teaming with people – they have seminars, play areas for the kids, special booths for clothing sale items – The Hotel, we stay at, is booked. It’s amazing – supposed to be the ‘slow’ season and I’d swear there are more people here than last Nov-Dec at the height of the tourist season. The tourist from China are increasing every day – bus load after bus load get here – Looks like Chiang Mai is fast becoming a major Chinese playground too.
We received several emails with suggestions on how to improve the web-site. Excellent ideas we want to try. We are working on them now and should be making some great changes to the layout and theme. Thanks everyone for your input and help.
I’ll get back to you with some new pictures soon
