Tourists flock to Doi Inthanon for the morning mists

Tourists are heading for the hills to enjoy the first of the season’s cold snaps in northern Thailand.

Both domestic and international have have been flocking to Chiang Mai’s Doi Inthanon, Thailand’s highest mountain, to enjoy the start of the cooler temperatures, dipping as low as 7 degrees Celsius.

The Jom Thong district of Chiang Mai province experiences temperatures of between 7-15 degrees Celsius and morning mists, popular with photographers. The mountain’s Kew Mae Pan view point has proven particularly popular with its average temperature of 11-17 degrees Celsius. Travelers to the cliff are urged to use their headlights as it is densely foggy during the morning hours.

Phu Singh in Bueng Kan province of the northeast has also begun to attract tourists to its Tham Rusee, or hermit’s cave, and Hin Sam Wal, or three whales rock. Due to the area being a popular choice to see the sunrise over Lao PDR, the authorities have provided tents and created camping areas for visitors.
