  1. It is not only north. Bkk and Pattaya just as bad from time to time. Air pollution in the country is a complete and absurd tragedy. Completely man-made. Can be easily avoided and is completely disrespectful towards the country’s citizens who suffer the most and are exposed to serious illness. Thailand is no longer the “land of smiles”, but the country where everyone wears a face mask due to extreme air pollution. It is also completely disrespectful to the tourists who travel to Thailand and are exposed to this. A minimum of respect and honesty towards visitors dictates that the Thai tourism industry informs about the extreme air pollution in the country.
