    Air quality in chiang mai currently

    If you check the AQI of various places it looks like CM is not doing badly yet. For example CM is currently on a 56 score, Singapore 75, New York NY 57, London 57, New Delhi 227, Beijing 73 & Tokyo 37. It will be fascinating to see how this develops in the burning season.

    Parking At Meechok Plaza

    Parking At Meechok Plaza

    For at least the next three months the already challenging parking situation at Meechok Plaza is going to be even more difficult. About 40% of the parking behind Rimping was blocked off yesterday to allow for the building of a five level parade. The Monday and Tuesday evening market causes a serious problem in the car park as well as on the road. This new construction is likely to make a seriously difficult parking situation untenable. Let's hope that the traffic police are going to be on hand to prevent the probable interference with the traffic flow at Ruamchok interchange. Hopefully the additional extra space in the new parkade will meet the growing demand. Sent from my Nexus 7 using Thaivisa Connect Thailand mobile app

    Advice On Purchasing A Smartphone?

    You ask a lot of questions but I will try to summarise. Your core issue is the operating system. I see you are not an Apple fanboi, me neither. So it comes down to Android vs Windows Phone, and here Android wins hands down. My smartphone, tablet and laptop are all synced so I can access anything anywhere on any device. Easy to set up and simple to coordinate updates across machines. Now I have a tablet I hardly use my laptop. My phone is capable of being a WiFi hotspot from my mobile data plan so can support my other devices when out of WiFi range. Google Maps is a great resource as are Google Translate, Drive, Chrome etc. This leaves you with a huge choice of manufacturers to choose from. The latest iMobile models seem great value and are offered by T Mobile in the U.S.A so can't be bad. At the other end of the scale you have things in the Samsung Galaxy range. I love my Samsung Galaxy Note 2 because it is big and suits my fat fingers. And then there are brands like HTC - poor after sales support in my experience - Motorola etc. The only way to select one is to find a retailer with a good choice and decent sales staff. Here I cannot help you, I live in Chiang Mai. As for your mobile plan, I am sure AIS have many post pay data options. I use Dtac and have no problems with service and billing. It is worth taking a while to explore the options and a long term view on all these issues. Then you will buy something that will suit you for a while. Good luck.
