Chiang Mai Old City Walls & flooding in the town October 2005
Chiang Mai showing the really bad downpour they had in October 2005. Picture A shows
how everyone had to get about, this is the main street leading to Downtown Hotel.
Picture B shows Downtown Hotel pumping out the water.
Picture C The main cross roads in the town, what was strange was that 100 metres
up the road in the direction the motorbike is heading the water did not appear to
have flooded the town.
Picture D. Showing the depth of water outside the Downtown Hotel
The River often floods the town when rain is non stop, even the trains could not
get through to Chiang Mai.It was not fun having to wade to the hotel in what was
then cold water.
