How to find short term accommodation in Chiang Mai?


in Chiang Mai, Thailand by @kathrynoh | 5yr  | 12 comments

Iโ€™m planning on 6 weeks in Chiang Mai soon and most of the stuff Iโ€™ve read about finding a place there says the best thing to do is to look in person. Considering the short time Iโ€™m there, I would prefer to prebook to say a couple of days of apartment hunting.

I was wondering about the options for short(ish) term accommodation and if pre-booking is worthwhile or if Iโ€™ll just get fobbed off with the worst room/apartment available.

Iโ€™m just looking for something basic - so long as it has air conditioning. Having a work space would be a definite advantage as would closeness to coffee. Other than that, things like a pool, gym, kitchen arenโ€™t that important to me.

For people who want to get Chiang Mai and then search around for apartments, I put together a list of places that you can stay easily for a few nights while you search for a place - http://www.locationindependent.co.uk/short-term-accommodation-options-in-chiang-mai/

I just arrived in Chiang Mai & had to go through the โ€œon siteโ€ house hunting process, I just wrote what i found out on my new blog www.grownupplayground.com/chang-mai-monthly-accommodation. Note that I posted a few addresses (& exact google locations) along with the prices & business cards/brochure for the interesting place I came across. Hope it helps!

Just note that the Nimman area has a lot of bars and nightclubs, so keep this in mind. Depending on how late you go to bed or how well you sleep with noise going on all around, this is may not be a good choice.

Kathryn, you can find even cheaper options, check this post, very useful for short term accommodation http://blog.chrisgrabinski.com/2015/04/26/monthly-apartment-rentals-in-chiang-mai/
These are all places that we know, I would personally recommend Chiang Mai Lodge, for costs, location and service.

I donโ€™t see the problem with prebooking. How much can you be done in by over such a short period?

For such a short (and odd) term you may have difficulty renting an apartment in any case as they may require a longer commitment and maybe wonโ€™t rent for half a month.

Depending on you budget, I would suggest renting in a serviced apartment. I stayed at The Opium (http://www.theopium-chiangmai.com/) before and they are very good. Right now I am staying at Sang Serene (http://www.sangserene-house.com/) and also very good though a bit on the outskirts of the city so not too everyoneโ€™s taste - you will definitely need a motorcycle.

Lastly you can also check out the Chiang Mai properties website: http://chiangmaiproperties.co.th/EN/index.aspx

Thanks. The Opium looks perfect for what I need and around the budget I was thinking of paying.

Most of my concerns were based on the apartments I found on Airbnb + reading blogs that say to look at places in person first because often the pics donโ€™t match reality.

Probably a bit late for this thread, but just wanted to say that I also stayed at the opium last year (and will be staying there again a few weeks from now) and itโ€™s a great place to stay. Quiet enough, close to town, reliable wifi and super friendly people. Really recommend it

Ho Chi Minh City, Chiang Mai or Bali for Jun-Jul-Aug for work?


in Chiang Mai, Thailand by @chelocoach | 2yr 2 years ago | 8 comments

Hi experienced nomads!

Iโ€™ve been nomading around SE Asia, HK and China for the last 4 to 5 months. Iโ€™ve been moving a lot and now I need to settle down for 3 months to finish some work. So the idea is to be in a stimulating city where I can find nomads, start-ups, self growth, self improvement, spirituality environments.
I already been for one month in Chiang mai, and liked it a lot in this respect, but wanted to try somewhere new, so was thinking to go to Ho Chi Minh or Bali. As I will be working mainly most of the time, the idea is not to spend much this three months, so my idea is to spend around 1200usd per month.

Would appreciate any opinions on this.

Best place to sit down and work for three months on a 1200usd budget a month?

Thnx :slight_smile:

Has anyone done the Non O Ed Visa in Hand to Hand Combat in Chiang Mai?


in Chiang Mai, Thailand by @artofbryce | 3yr 2 years ago | 4 comments

Weโ€™re headed to Chiang Mai in July looking at our options for visas and came across this: http://www.cmlocals.com/1-year-ed-visa-hand-to-hand-combat/

Has anyone done it?

It looks amazing and beneficial for many reasons, but Iโ€™m a little skeptical without being able to read external reviews or hear of experiences from people whoโ€™ve successfully done it.

Thoughts and other options are appreciated!

p.s. right now we have a one-way ticket and are wanting to keep our options open to stay longer if we love it (which weโ€™re anticipating)

Bali vs. Chiang Mai for digital nomads?


in Chiang Mai, Thailand by @snu6ew | 3yr 3 years ago | 16 comments

My girlfriend and I started our DN life this March and went straight to Chiang Mai because of itโ€™s ease of living. We love it. CM is great โ€“ we got a scooter for 2700 THB, a nice apartment for 8000 THB all in, we get our laundry done for 50 THB, eat out at nice places every day for less than 100 THB etc. Arriving here needed nearly no preparation โ€“ it just worked out all by itself.

We are still on tight budget and donโ€™t want to give up much of CMโ€™s quality of life but we want to see other places and we are now thinking about what could be our next destination. We are not really willing and able to spend more than what we spend now. Bali seems to be a good place according to what you all wrote.

How does it compare to Chiang Mai or Thailand in general?
CM can get very hot and we often acknowledge that we should have chosen an apartment with a pool here. Can I rent something in Bali for a few months with a pool for less than 250 USD?

Are there any Nomad-houses or similar projects at the moment that make it easy to connect to other people?

We donโ€™t really hang out in co-working spaces, more in cafรฉs. We source products in China and sell them to customers in Europe through e-commerce.

Any tips or experiences are greatly appreciated. Thanks!

How is Chiang Mai's air quality?


in Chiang Mai, Thailand by @albyantoniazzi | 3yr 3 years ago | 9 comments

Hello everyone!
Iโ€™m currently touring South East Asia and Iโ€™m now in Koh Lanta (Thailand). I was planning to visit Chiang Mai on friday, but Iโ€™ve read the air quality in this period is so bad due to fires that are using as a method of cultivating crops there in the north. Is it something to take in consideration or just nothing to care about?
Thanks in advance!
And by the way, if anybody is in Chiang Mai and would like to grab a coffee would also be cool!

Hey guys,

Iโ€™m looking at heading to Cape Town in February/March. I am looking for a long term accomodation for about three months. I checked out GumTree and StayinCapeTown, but I was wondering if you had any more reccomendations on where to look! Airbnb is quite expensive and sparse.

Also, I would love to know your favourite areas in the city and hear about your experiences :slight_smile:

What is the first thing I should do when I land in Chiang Mai?


in Chiang Mai, Thailand by @joshuaballard | 3yr 3 years ago | 11 comments

I have been tempted by the digital nomad lifestyle for quite some time now.

I purposefully built a business that allowed me to work anywhere that has my PC and an internet connection, but then ended up renting an office and just going about life business as usual in the town I grew up in.

I finally booked tickets for a few months in Asia, and will be landing in Chiang Mai on the 17th of March

(which someone pointed out to me is actually the smokey season, which iโ€™m reading about now)

For a first time digital nomad, what would you recommend as the first point of call when landing in a new city?

thanks for any shared wisdom all

Coming to Chiang Mai in February, what can we do now to make it awesome?


in Chiang Mai, Thailand by @jamieo | 4yr 3 years ago | 8 comments

Hi guys, my wife and I are planning on spending 2-3 months in Chiang Mai in February and wanted to know from experienced people if there is anything we can learn or do beforehand to make it a productive and exciting trip?

Weโ€™ve traveled together before so thatโ€™s all good, we know what to pack and have been spending time reading these forums and related blogs for ideas on living costs etc.

Also, Chiang Mai seems like the place to go if you want cheap living but weโ€™re totally open to other suggestions in the area, for example looking at Saigon or other places.

Any suggestions or pointers would be most appreciated!

Other places like Ubud, Chiang Mai, Vienna, Prague...?


in Chiang Mai, Thailand by @rich | 4yr 3 years ago | 10 comments

Hi,
weโ€™re having trouble deciding where to go in the fall (September, October, November) or over the winter for that matter. We loved Chiang Mai, Ubud, Vienna, Prague, Lisbon and weโ€™re looking for a similar place to stay for 1-2 months. Weโ€™ll be in Germany and have a car. We wanted to go to Italy, but weโ€™re not getting excited about any place in particular - or we just donโ€™t know where to go. Any ideas?

What do we like? Pleasant weather, open minded people (whose eyes donโ€™t fall out when they see a black girl), healthy food (in restaurants and supermarkets) with vegetarian options, a chill vibe. Nice rentals (we use Airbnb a lot). A nice compromise between nature and not feeling like youโ€™re in the middle of nowhere. Oh, and no bugs or mosquitos please (they love us, but our bodies hate them. We get huge welts that stay for weeks).

Thanks!
Rich & Chinny
