World War II Museum in Khun Yuam district, Mae Hong Son
Old men tell that, during World War II, Japanese soldiers
moved through the upper northern region, especially Chiang Mai and Mae Hong
Son. Japanese troops set up a road from Mae Malai, Chiang Mai, to reach Khun
Yuam district, Mae Hong Son, a road that earned the sad name of “Death
Road”, as many persons died during its construction.
Farewell tennis tournament for the Jardines
Calcutta’s newly appointed US Consul Henry Jardine made
an enormous impact in Chiang Mai during his stint here. Some of the impact
was seen on the tennis courts last weekend, when a special farewell
tournament saw the local tennis players from the diplomatic and business
community attempting to emulate Cobra Gold exercises with some dangerous
hits to the outfield, with many participants narrowly escaping injury.
