Fire in the Sky? March-April may be smoky times to travel to Chiang Mai and Northern Thailand
As much as we love Chiang Mai, traditional slash-and-burn farming methods can create a particularly sooty sky that leaves the air challenging, from both a breathing and visibility perspective. Pre-monsoon is when the fields are afire, and until the rains come in May and June, “the skies are brown, with the sound of crackling,” to paraphrase an old Musical.
Should you go in the months of March and April, or wait until the rains come? People with respiratory problems should be cautious, and consulting a doctor in advance of the trip could prove to be of value.
