The coldest winter in Thailand ...

I've just read the news from the Department of Meteorology here in Thailand, and they say we're in for the coldest winter in 30 years, jing jing.

Last week the mercury struggled to get to double digits, reaching only 10 degrees at Doi Inthanon in Chiang Mai province.

Woohoo! I love the winters here ... a chance to enjoy beautiful warm days but cool and even crisp evenings, pull a sweater or leather jacket out of mothballs, and throw on a scarf. Yes, that's right, this is another side to the tropical Thailand that you know. For maximum effect, head to places like Chiang Mai, Chiang Rai, Pai, Mae Hong Song, Doi Mae Salong, and Doi Tung. Or even Khao Yai just 2 hours north of Bangkok.

November through to January is the popular winter season up north, so make your plans today before everywhere is booked out.
