Like every winter we come to Chiangmai for one, two or
more months, and that since five years, since we are retired. And I gave you
my opinion about traffic of your city already several times. We like your
City very much, the friendly people, the cultural activities, the historic
and religious background, etc.
What I want to write about is the traffic and
air-pollution: I was very happy last year to know that city bus no.10, and I
hope you go on with more public transport.
This year I noticed more traffic lights and specials for
pedestrians. Very good too.
But since long I criticize tuk-tuks, which make so much
noise during night and day, and produce more pollution than even a big
The taxi meter and the “song teao” should be
satisfying for Thai and farang customers, no more tuk-tuks please. The air
is so bad along the canals and elsewhere, that it might be a reason for me
not to stay anymore in Chiangmai. Beware of lung-problems for everybody.
Best wishes for your public transport projects.
