Chiang Mai suffered badly in the 1997 Asian financial crisis as the northern Thai real estate bubble collapsed along with the Thai baht, crushing dreams of a renaissance of northern prosperity. Years later, the ruins of the excesses of the 1990s still stain the skyline. Andrew Alan Johnson shows how the trauma of the crash, brought back vividly by the political crisis of 2006, haunts efforts to remake the city.
