We agree Colonel
As a citizen of the world, I have made an effort to read the daily English
language newspapers like the Bangkok Post and the Nation, as well as weekly
news magazines like The Economist, Time, and Newsweek, professional military
academic journals, and even general books mostly in English for more than 20
With this added knowledge, it becomes easier to spot their differences and
discover the advantages they bring. Indeed, I believe it is a must for every
Thai person of any age and profession to read more English texts or books
that are up to international standard.
English is now a necessary language to be able to access the world’s body of
knowledge. Reading English allows you to understand internationals people’s
minds. It will help you to comprehend well the world’s situations and global
problems. Thai people will know how to solve difficult situations or
problems more easily, and then will know how to help develop our nation
through English language and communications.
Being a Thai who “acts locally” but “thinks globally” I have found that the
Chiangmai Mail is a local newspaper of international standards and
high quality. I regularly read it. Chiangmai Mail is the best local
newspaper that provides local news, information, and facts in detail with
in-depth reporting that goes straight to the important facts.
It should be a point of pride for Chiang Mai and all Thai northern people to
have it (CMM), and I would like to encourage all of you to support this good
work so it can continue. We do not want to see it stop its printing or
production ever again. Once again, I would like to offer my full endorsement
and moral support to cheer you all on at the Chiangmai Mail to help
you keep up this good work which is one of the most important products for
the Thai nation. This newspaper aims to build a knowledge based society.

Mr. Appleton’s mother writes in
Although I have never visited Thailand, may I say how delighted that the
Chiangmai Mail will soon be up & running again. My son has lived in Mae Sai
for the past few years, and by reading your newspaper regularly, it has kept
me well informed as to what is going on in his neck of the woods.
I am sure that I’m not the only parent who finds that access to your paper
has helped bridge the gap of so many thousand miles.
Good luck with your re-launch,
Sylvia Appleton (Mrs.)
Thank you Mr. Mayor
Congratulations to the Chiangmai Mail, the first weekly English
language newspaper that presents highly trusted news and features to the
residents, ex-pats and visitors of Chiang Mai.
On the occasion of the return of the Chiangmai Mail we welcome its
mission to promote and create more awareness for our Northern capital which
is admired for its good reputation among the foreign tourists and visitors
as well as the ex-pats.
It is a duty for the Chiangmai Mail to present its goodwill with
ethics in journalism that is up to high standards and quality.
On behalf of the local administrations and the people of Chiang Mai I would
like to congratulate the newspaper on its re-launch, and convey my best
wishes to the newspaper’s executives, editorial team, reporters and staff
for a prosperous future.
Congratulations and best wishes,
Mayor of Chiang Mai
