Chiang Mai ViewPlace 2, Condo B 90 Moo 1 Mahidol Road, Phaded Sub-District,
Chiang Mai, Thailand, Chiang Mai 50100
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.
