    TIP issue cannot die

    News, Editorial, Published on 05/08/2015

    Life, Kong Rithdee, Published on 05/08/2015

    » You can easily miss the turn into H Gallery Chiang Mai. A small road forks off the highway at Mae Rim, skirting along an irrigation canal, and a patchwork of verdant paddies, glistening in the July drizzle, opens up like a vision. At a curve as the road takes a slight dip downhill, there is a building covered with hanging vines and bursting flowers.
