Hot district in the south of Chiang Mai province.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hot_District

 

First time I hear this name (which will always lead to some jokes).

Difficult to find something substantial about the district town (a small place like a big village).

"Downtown" Hot :smile::

The roundabout with the little clock tower seems somewhat unique.

 

Are you looking for something specific?

Do they have vegemite in Hot :biggrin:

Town not city, 83km from Chiang Mai Central Plaza.

Accommadation is available but limited.

2 Petrol Stations, 3 Gold Shops and a handful of 7/11's.

There is a small daily market in the morning.

Plenty of small family run local eateries. 

District Hospital and Police Station on hand.

Gateway to Doi Tao Lake & The Ob Luang Gorge or an overnight pit stop on the Mae Hong Son Loop.

If you're in Amphur Hot (pronounced 'hote' as in table d' hote), please say hello for me to the ghosts of the miners who extracted the rock crystal and topaz used to create some of the rarest Thai Buddha images made in ancient times.

 

cheers, ~0:37;

it is pronounced as in the thai spelling by trujillo.....  the french guy saying table d'hote on you tube doesn't come close.  I suggest that learning to read thai ( basic will help with most pronunciations) is  the best way and in my OPINION only way to get it.  I have had thai people repeat a word over and over....but really had to see

the spelling to get it.   Unlike english .thai spelling is consistent in its pronunciation.   

English ...  usage of ea in a word.    is it feather....or meat....or create.....?   

Thai  :  by no means easy to learn the vowels and vowel combinations.   confusing at first.  but they do

keep the same sound in all usages

Only someone who has never been able to become aware of regional differences in pronunciation of Thai would assert this. The RTG official transliteration is kind of the goal-post in a game where ... the goal posts move (with social class, and context, as well as locality), as in every other language, perhaps more so given the complexity of the tones:

The RTGS is easy and convenient but it is a limited system. This system can in no way replace a complete system of transliteration respectful of the complexity of the Thai alphabet. Only transliteration can effectively recognize the terms borrowed from classical Indian languages such as Pali and Sanskrit. This is why we also use, when this seems necessary (especially for manuscript titles), a transliteration system for the Khmer, Mul, Thai, Yuan [Northern-Thai], Lao and Tham-Lao alphabets, in use at the EFEO and published in La pureté par les mots : Saddavimala, by Bizot (François) and Lagirarde (François) in “Textes bouddhiques du Cambodge, Laos, Thaïlande [3]”, EFEO, 1996, pp. 271-275. This system has been slightly modified to fit the Unicode font standard and follow a more natural and simplified approach.

 

What I hear when Thais pronounce the name of the Amphur, has a long vowel quite different from any English standard vowel sound, and the final consonant is somewhere between a "d' and a "t" in standard English: it reminds me of some of the aspirated consonants in Hindi-Urdu that are very rare for English speakers to master (I never did).

Have been through Hot once, not the most interesting place in the world. Restaurant next to the police station had reasonably good food.
