in the heart of Chiang Mai quickly reopened their stalls and shops as soon as floodwater disappeared. Although the floodwater was nearly one metre deep yesterday morning, its level quickly dropped down during the day and finally roads became dry once more.
Apart from the Night Bazaar, key markets like Mueang Mai, Waroros and Ton Lamyai also got back to business as usual.
"We will quickly rehabilitate affected areas," Chiang Mai Governor ML Panadda Diskul said.
Chiang Mai Chamber of Commerce secretary general Wittaya Krongsap has estimated that flooding caused more than Bt600 million damages to Chiang Mai businesses each day.
"With three days of flooding, the damages are already well over Bt1.8 billion," he said.
