Chiang Mai, Thailand

Chiang Mai still under water


Thailand’s northern province of Chiang Mai was still under water as some areas were hit with more than one metre deep flooding, and several districts of the Thai capital are warned of possible flooding in the coming days.

Chiang Mai’s major commercial area was still inundated with water over a metre deep, with many streets in Chiang Mai municipality, especially Chang Klan Road, where at least 10 hotels and the famous NIGHT BAZAAR bazaar are located, under 50-70 cm (1.6-2.3 feet) of water.

Many riverside communities along the Ping River and lowland areas were flooded with the flood over one metre high and spreading into other areas.

However, the water in Ping River was gradually receding with 4-5 cm per hour by average.


And when the Ping merges with the Pong: HOLY CRAP!
