Mythbusters: Chiang Mai Style
Tonight I'd like to break the myth that Thailand is always warm, sunny, and the perfect winter getaway place. Nights and mornings of the winter season here can go down a lot, about 15 - 20 degrees celsius in Chiang Mai is the norm. Up north a bit on Doi Inthanon there have been reports of snow (Doi meaning mountain). While this may not seem very cold for most people living in the West, after living in a tropical climate for so long the slightest chill goes a long way.
