CHIANG MAI ATTRACTIONS
WHAT TO SEE IN CHIANG MAI
Chiang Mai is quickly becoming one of the most popular destinations in Thailand. The scenic mountain terrain beckons travellers to explore its peaks and forests, while the city is home to a wealth of historic and cultural sites waiting to be discovered.
Whether you’re the adventurous type who loves outdoor activities or a cultured epicure who loves to experience the finer things in life, a holiday in Chiang Mai will more than satisfy you – it will amaze you.
The Night Bazaar is arguably Chiang Mai’s biggest attraction in its self, leading the modern legacy of the Yuannese trading caravans that would stop here along the ancient trade route between China and Myanmar. Historic attractions are a bit thin on the ground around here. The reason people come to the area is primarily to shop and absorb the lively atmosphere.
Other pulls of the Night Bazaar are entertainment focused with a varied selection of bars featuring live performances of boxing, cabaret and singing. However, true to Chiang Mai form there are a few temples speckled around the area; these include Wat Sri Dornchai, Wat Chang Kong and Wat Ubokut. Although these are some of the least spectacular structures within the city it is still well worth checking them out. The Ban Haw Mosque built by the Chin Ho, a group of Chinese Muslims during the 19th century, is also within the Night Bazaar area.
We had a wonderful week at Baan SongJum! Nui and Pen welcomed me and my wife to their home like we were family.
The place is absolutely charming and consists of 8 rooms that are located around an old teak-wooden house. The house stands on high stilts and the terasse under the house is the center of all activity. Here all guests come together for talks or just to relax, you can prepare your own meals in the kitchen, have a free coffee or tea and always find at least one of the hosts, who are always eager to help. We got wonderful tips for tours, local restaurants and regional cultural sights. And isn't it a wonderful feeling, when someone asks you, how your day was, when you return from a daytrip?
Pen also runs a little laundry-business, that we can recommend - especially when you travel for a long time. He's very quick and cheap (around 40 bht for a plastic bag of clothes).
The rooms are cosy and clean, but be sure to spend most of your time at the beautiful terasse, you can't resist. All in one, it was exactly the right place for our stay in Chiang Mai - it could not have been better. Thank you Nui, thank you Pen!
P.S.: And of course thank you Lanna and Franky (the lovely dogs!)
Tucked at the end of the street, Nui (Khun Parichart) and her son Pee Pin welcomed my partner and I to their home with the warmest and most helpful reception. Even before we stayed at their place, they been generously answering and helping me with my queries of Chiang Mai, arranging dinners and tours. Even more when we arrived.
Baan Songjum is very nearby the old city, and one can easily walk there or take a songkhew from the main roads.
For an amazing value, location, hospitality & comfort, head over to Baan Songjum,
Sincerely, Thom & Michelle.
Okay, this is the magic of this place. It is the people who own and run it. Is it five star or even four star... no, but it is clean and basic...and just so Thai and so much fun. We are retired and met wonderful, interesting people from all over the world. All who come and stay here ends up feeling like one big family. That is just the atmosphere they create. It is tucked way in off the street, so there is little street noise at all...just the sounds of the Chiang Mai dogs in chorus for short bits of time here and there...but it just becomes part of the overall ambiance, and is always over quickly. There is a central outdoor "living room" area where everyone congregates to share their days and their stories and there is a little Thai kitchen with cook top and refrigerator for your use. You just have to experience it to understand it's charm.
Fue maravilloso quedarme en este lugar. Parichart fue de una gran gentileza y atención y una gran ayuda. El lugar es muy lindo y cómodo, Se esta en la ciudad y a la vez uno se siente en el campo. También se encuentran personas de otras partes del mundo interesantes y amables. Queda muy cerca de excelentes restaurantes, masajes y del río. Si usted alquila una biscicleta será aún mejor.
We spent almost two weeks at Nui and Pen guesthouse. And all the time we felt it like home. They are full of hospitality and always ready to help with any advise for your trip. So if you have any questions, don't be shy. They can tell you when is better to visit national parks, temples, and night market.
Guesthouse is situated close to the center, but it's very quiet there. So traffic willn't bother you.
The Wararot market is located nearby. Only 5 minutes by foot. Just cross the bridge and turn left, if you want to buy some ready to eat food. And turn right to buy some fresh fruits and veg.
It was a great pleasure for us to stay here. And of course to meet such good friends as Nui and Pen.
Hope to see you again.
