    It's cold up north

    Mercury on top of Doi Inthanon drops to 6 degree


    Chiang Mai - The mercury on top of Doi Inthanon Mountain dropped to 6 Celsius degree Monday morning, a provincial official said.

    Prachon Pratsakul, Chiang Mai's chief officer for civil disaster and mitigation, said the lowest temperature on the tourist destination mountain top was 6 degree while the lowest temperature on the low land in the province was 11 degree Monday morning.

    He said poor people in Chiang Mai's 24 districts still needed 227,672 blankets and 60,236 jackets.

    In some countries, those temperatures would seem quite warm, I remember reading an article about the Tasmanian Aboriginal 200 years ago, they lived life naked, they lived in temperatures much lower than that and still did not resort to wearing clothes. It seems some people are tough and some are wimps.

    In the Bangkok area, our temperature dropped to a chilly 26 Celsius - though a maximum of about 31 Celsius. I guess that means winter is around the corner. Some students have already started coming to school in pullovers and jackets. Looks like we are in for a harsh winter.

    I'm a wimp - it was 16 degrees in the morning, I am sick, and still completely frozen. the kids are all sick, coughing, sneezing, snotty. it always takes a few weeks until everyone adjusts, and then it is a very nice season actually. the coldest I've had in my 3 years here was 8 degrees, and it went on for a while (every morning). that is a bit too cold if you have no heating or insulation.

    And all those Thais that are able planning their two or three nights camping on the mountains!
    Just for a touch of frost.
    In the days of the Raj the British created the hill stations for a short change of climate, supposedly to thicken the blood.

    Yes but has there ever been a case of it snowing on any of the higher mountains.

    Re: It's cold up north

    I'm so jealous! i wish the temp would drop to 15 degrees for at least a month in Bangkok every year just so we can go for a brisk walk now and then. Although it did seem nice and cool today (26 degrees you say, Richard?) I saw on the news earlier that Thailand is in for a cold spell in the next week or so.
