The freezing temperature in Thailand’s highest mountain and well known attractions didn’t stop tourists to visit and see frost or “mae khaning’ on plants.
Temperatures will continue to drop on Wednesday by between 1C and 3C in northern and northeastern, according to the announcement made by the Thai Meteorologial Department late Tuesday night.
Bangkok’s cool weather will continue until Thursday and will get a bit warmer over the weekend, but the temperature will once again drop next week, the department added.
