    No more Asiatique for me as a result of the dual pricing you brought to my attention.

    All decisions have consequences and Asiatique with their racist dual pricing has forever lost my patronage.

    I am not on FB but you have my permission to post this on their FB page.

    Richard, is there already a schedule for the sky lantern festival in Chiang Mai this year? I believe this is for Yi Ping.

    From my past visits and knowledge, the last day in Chiang Mai always have more events than the first 2 days although the main day is the 2nd day.
    I done agree with those who think that it’s not right to have dual-pricing. Why should we care if they charge the locals less or more ? If Asiatique is considered racist for dual pricing, what when the government impose foreign visitor’s fee ?

    The Chiang Mai sky lantern at Mae Jo is at Nov 16th this year. This year’s is the closest date to the 3 nights Loy Krathong festival. Damn, I arrive Chinag Mai on the 17th, so I will miss it again.

    The boat event thing at Asiatique is very short and quick, so be there early. I missed it last year by just 10 mins and they are all gone.
    Bangkok’s Loy Krathong is nothing much. The place to go is Chiang Mai and Sukhothai.
