To Thais, the weather has been downright cold, to us farangs it has been ideal. In Bangkok it has been below 20 at night and rarely hitting 30 during the day, the sun has been out been not strong and intense. My air con hasn’t been turned on in 10 days, easily a record for sitting idle.
In the North of Thailand the temperatures are even colder, causing problems for the locals in terms of staying warm. Houses in Thailand are not built to retain heat, but to allow ventilation. Many Thais are suffering with this “cold” spell as they aren’t used to this kind of weather, amazing, but you an smell many fires in the morning that have been built by locals trying to stay warm.
