The Governor of Chiang Mai, Nirat Pongsitthavorn, has announced that the high season is here and asks Chiang Mai residents to warmly welcome all visitors.

He went on to tell CityNews that he has been making sure that the city is ready to present itself and in the past week has removed over 10,000 unsightly sign posts towards that aim.

He went on to say that the past three months has seen a steady increase in tourists leading him to predict that this year we will see about 50% of pre-Covid tourists, which could number as many as six million.
