I thought it would be nice to be in a quiet place for my week in Chiang Mai.  I knew this small city was very popular with travelers so I looked for a place away from the city center.  I found a studio apartment for rent on Airbnb.  It is a new building, spotlessly clean and nicely furnished.  There is a pool, gym (that I never used) and laundry. It is in a neighborhood of many new condos, and close to the airport.  If I walk the 2 blocks to the main road, and turn left it is only a 10 minute walk to a big shopping center called Airport Central Plaza.  I love the doormen there, white gloves, sharp uniforms, and they salute, and click their heels when you enter……makes me feel important.  This mall has a huge saltwater aquarium. I spent an hour watching the fish. From this mall it is easy to catch a songtaeu (shared taxi) to town, but I always walk.  Its only 30 minutes and an interesting walk every day.  My only complaint was the neighbor’s rooster, who can not tell time.  He thought we all needed a 5 am wake up call most days – and it is still dark then.20160111_081954

  1. Wow, I stayed at this place in January 2016. The chinese guy I rented from (airbnb) was also a taxi driver at your service! It was nice to be able to walk to the mall(with Starbucks!)but I found it too far from the city itself. Chang Mai was very different from rest of Thailand and quite cold(10c) while there which made my travel companions in a hurry to get to Phuket and warmer air. If I go again I will rent or buy a bicycle.

  2. I was in Chiang Mai 1st 3 months of 2016.I was there for the 3 day cold spell.I was in the NE corner of the Old City,MoonMunang Soi 7.
    I simply fell in Love with people and the city.I lucked out and found a studio 5 hours after an over night bus dropped me at a dumpy hotel.Rented studio by the month.$180/mo.TV,refrid.kitchen,
    Made many new friends.Highly suggest a visit to Mad Dog Pizza for drinks,conversations,pizza,and more.
