This small house is in the riverside area of Chiang Mai. It's in a very vibrant area, a short walk to Chiang Mai's main markets, the Night Bazar and other sights. The place was recently renovated, adding new floors and a completely new kitchen. Upstairs are two air conditioned bedrooms, the front facing one has a small balcony. There is broadband WiFi Internet. Outside there is a large secure space to park a car or motorcycles.

There are many restaurants and cafes nearby, or if you feel like cooking yourself, the kitchen is ready to go with a stove, basic pans and utensils, plates, cutlery, glasses, and so on. There is a fridge, hot water thermos and a microwave.

We typically pick guests up from the airport or bus/train station and love to share tips and things about Chiang Mai.

The house is 80m into a quiet lane off the main road. It's a short walk to a very good supermarket and local markets, and it's also easy to get public transport around town on the main road.

About this location

The Chiang Mai Province region

For me, the main thing that sets Chiang Mai apart from most other provincial capitals in Thailand is the sense of history that you get in this city. Even just driving from the airport to our place we pass the city moat, remnants of the city walls and gates, several temples and even two old pagoda ruins, just off the main roads.

This is not to say that all buildings are old (most aren't, even in the old town area), but you will discover some very ancient structures mixed in with a modern, vibrant town. If you look at a satellite image of old Sukhothai, or Angkhor Wat in Cambodia you see a very similar layout to Chiang Mai: A square rectangular city moat, with lots of temples scattered around town. Angkor and Sukhothai are historical parks now. Chiang Mai however is very much alive; you get the old and the new in the very same place. Chiang Mai is actually growing quite fast these days, fortunately most of that development is along the ring roads, leaving the charm of the city center the same as it ever was.

And then in many ways Chiang Mai is 'just right' : It's big enough that there is so much to see and do, but small enough to quickly get around, or quickly get out of town and into the mountains, forests and waterfalls of Northern Thailand. Because of tourism there is a wide variety of restaurants and entertainment, yet the city is large enough that tourism isn't an all-overbearing industry that completely washes out anything else.

Chiang Mai

The house is just off the road along the Eastern river bank. This puts it in walking distance from some very distinct areas: cross the narrow Iron Bridge and you are at the Night Bazar, with many tourist hotels and restaurants. Or go the other way and you get to Chiang Mai's old commercial center with lots of shophouses around the Sanpakhoi market.

Chiang Mai's biggest market is across the next bridge up, or continue straight towards Thapae Gate and the city moat. To the south there is the Gymkhana Golf and Sports club, established in 1898.

One of Chiang Mai's best supermarkets is just 300m up the road, and there are many restaurants and cafes on the road along the river.

"Great place to stay"

Really enjoyed staying here - plenty of room, our host was excellent, near to restaurants, night bazaar and supermarket. Close to everything but still quiet and private… More

Thank you for submitting the review; Very nice to hear! ;)
