Red lights - what red lights?
Please could someone tell me what a red light means in Chiang Mai? I am not
very good at the Thai language. While waiting at junctions, I often see
people ‘run’ traffic lights, go through red lights, even with the Police

marks at these junctions, which is a sign of accidents. I wonder how many
people are in hospital because someone could not wait.

Thanks from KissMetta
Thanks, Chiang Mai Mail for covering our recent charity event.
KissMetta raised over 90,000 Baht for the Freedom House School. Chiangmai
citizens, including the Mail, generously gave their services, time,
energy and resources to help this worthy cause. The event was a huge success
thanks to the compassionate nature of our lovely city!
For those of you who weren’t able to attend, Freedom House is a non-profit
school for underprivileged children and adults who live in Chiangmai. It
offers free classes to its students, who do not otherwise have access to
education. Since 2006, Freedom House has been providing its students totally
free education including Thai and English language classes, art and music to
better equip them for the future.
If you would like to volunteer or make donations (school supplies, food,
clothes, money, etc), please contact them through their website:
Thanks, Chiang Mai, for your generous support!
Same places - same faces
I buy the newspaper most weeks. Can you please tell me why the same places
and the same faces often appear in the Around Town?
Our reporter prefers to be asked - rather than go somewhere uninvited -
although not always. If anyone is having a special party, or if there is an
event somewhere, please contact our reporter at
