Hello, fellow travelers!
However, i'v read reports about the air quality dropping to very bad levels between Feb. and April in Chiang Mai because of Slash and Burn agricultural practices by Northern Thailand and Myanmar Farmers. This happens every year, the city is often engulfed in smog/haze with several people ending at the hospital for asthma/respiratory problems. I'd like to enjoy my stay (and the view!) in Chiang Mai and would probably postpone my journey there until later in April if the situation is similar this year, but I cannot find any recent news item on the topic.
Is anybody in Chiang Mai at the moment, who could let me know what are the actual conditions? I'd be most grateful!
