"Chiang Mai" is usually viewed upon as a city full of Art and Culture that is refined and complex, but rarely has people been able to discover the other appealing side of this capital of the north.
We are talking about the more simple lifestyle of the "Northern country folks" who spend their lives on the outskirts amongst trees and nature, with their humble beliefs and honest crafts.
"Baan Noi Norn Muan" is a place that will pass on the stories of these down to earth families found around the outlying districts of Chiang Mai through plain folklores told on wooden porches. These stories, inhabiting various corners as pieces of unique crafts made by local artisans or "Sala", are neither too complicated nor too brute, they take form as each "Sala" contributes their creativity and experiences, making them surprising and unexpected.
A tranquil guesthouse with four little houses is there. There it is filled with 8 cozy rooms where you can stay enjoyable. Uniquely blended ambience of house and landscape decoration is mixed with contemporary art and raw-house style with an amazing decorating twist of Lanna household materials.

Came back and stayed an extra three nights here because it was such a pleasant experience. Kind and courteous host, great guest houses and a quiet environment just a short drive from the city.
Very nice guest house. Lovely clean and cool room with lovely deck area. Unfort no one spoke any English so we were very much on our own to figure out how to get around which would have been helpful as it is situated about a 30 min walk from the city center. A very pleasant stay none the less.
Excentré de chang mai (mais c'est jouable à pied) vous trouverez un quartier paisible
Et une belle nature...les chambres sont propres et l'accueil souriant
Cependant personne ne parle anglais sur place...donc pour les bons tuyaux laissez tomber. On vous proposera un petit dej thaï ou américain mais une fois votre choix fait plus possible de changer (pour la version thaï il s'agit d'un bol de riz/soupe sympa mais c'est tout)
En gros c'est sympa mais pas top!
