Downtown Hotel Chiang Mai - linked to 7 deaths? More controversy

Jump to last reply

Thinking of visiting Chiang Mai? I personally would think twice before staying at this hotel before the controversy is definitively laid to rest.

The Downtown hotel in Chiang Mai is still enmeshed in a controversy involving the deaths of 7 people who either stayed at the hotel or visited the place.

THe situation was recently reviewed on NZ TV and the inappropriate use of a pesticide used to eradicate bedbugs was suggested as a possible cause. (the substance is banned in many countries)

THe current Mayor o Chiang Mai appears to insist it is merely “unlucky” or “coincidence”.
The owner of the Downtown Inn is a former mayor of Chiang Mai. He is no stranger to controversy. He once asked the local police to “lecture” women on “improper clothing” during Song Khran. He was disqualified from the Provincial Administration Organisation for vote buying and electoral fraud.
It appears he owns several other hotels too.

If you want a summary of the story refer to the Bangkok Post “spectrum” Sunday May 15 20011
