Smoke in Chang Mai

One hung low

Recommended Posts

I have heard that Chang Mai can get quite smoky during certain times of year from the burning.

Which months are the worst?

After each Rice Crop has been collected they burn off the waste Normally second crop causes more pollution combined with the Heat etc but never found it a issue.


Jakarta now that is Bad and unless you suffer from SOB COPD or such Chaing Mai should not be an issue

Thought you were going to ask where can you get it?

I was there back in Early April and it was shocking some days... In fact I cut my trip short by a day because of it. 


Was told it was bad time to go, but how bad could it be I thought... It was bad !

That is exactly my thoughts, bit public I thought and chance of getting someone else in trouble as I am sure this sort of site would be monitored by the Jon'Dame'

I was there in March, my eyes itched a little after visiting Doi Suthep, otherwise OK.  It's a regional problem, some years worse than others.  Need some rain to wash it away.


Here are two shots near the north gate, taken in the fall and spring, respectively


September, you can see the temple in the upper right




In March you wouldn't know there's a mountain there

    • Hi Guys

      As many of you know we have been running now for 16 years and apart from one brief time when we were allowed PayPal, so could use the inbuilt donation function, we have tried to avoid asking for donations. We have certainly avoided being in anyones face about it.

      Sadly that has now changed.

      The forum currently costs around $900 a month to operate. That includes Bangkok and Philippines but PA makes up the vast majority of it. This fee covers forum hosting, image hosting, notification emails and support.

      Before anyone says "its expensive" please be aware we have tried for years to find better for cheaper - it just doesn't exist for the size we are. Also a lot of hosts wont Touch us anyway. Our current host is actually cheaper than the previous one but that brings its own problems.

      Moving on -

      I would like to stress there is NO obligation whatsoever. Also, whatever happens the forum is going no-where!

      Donators can CHOOSE to have their donation listed (probably in this thread or we can make a new one) or to remain anonymous. Likewise they can CHOOSE whether the amount is published or not.

      There is no minimum, or maximum for that matter. ANY donation will be very gratefully received. We are very aware that many members are also having it tough these days.

      We are still unable to promote/post PayPal addresses etc on the forum so would ask that anyone who would like to make a donation to PM me, or ask me here to PM you and we will sort out details via that PM.
