CHIANG RAI – Tourist season in Chiang Rai is now in full swing as tourists flock to Phu Chi Fa Mountain to see the beautiful sea of fog and experience cooler temperatures at the mountain top.

Chiang Rai Meteorological Office reports, temperatures across the province have been dropping steadily, with the ground-level reading hitting its lowest at 12.8 degrees Celsius in the capital district near Mae Fah Luang Airport. The mercury reportedly plunges further by up to 4 degrees Celsius when measured on mountaintops.

Mr Niphon Jomnongsirisak, Director of the Protected Area Regional Office 15, said the average temperature atop Phu Chi Fa Mountain in Thoeng district on the Thai-Lao border was recently recorded at only 8 degrees Celsius. The wintry condition is also accompanied by thick fog, prompting a need for motorists to be extra careful due to poor visibility.

Mr Niphon added that, thanks to clear skies, approximately 3,000 people are visiting Phu Chi Fa Forest Park throughout this long weekend to marvel at the sea of mist, which is even more captivating at sunrise. Due to the influx of tourists, 20 park officers have been deployed to ensure their safety and convenience.
