Chiang Mai, Thailand Hotels

31 Mar

When planning our upcoming trip to Thailand, we got stuck on deciding which hotel to stay in in each area. There are so many questions that come to mind when choosing a hotel: is this a good area? how is the service? is this within walking distance to the sights? etc. etc. etc. Despite the answers to these questions, the Thai people are known for their excellent service so pretty much wherever you stay, you know you are in good hands.

For the Chiang Mai leg of our trip, we ultimately decided on staying at Rimping Village but there were so many great hotels we considered that I wanted to share some of them, in case they suit your needs.

Location tip: after doing quite a bit of research and speaking with people who’ve visited Chiang Mai, we realized there are two places you are better off staying in: near the Night Market or inside the Old City. This will allow you to be within walking distance (or a short tuk tuk ride) to two of the main tourist areas.

Here are some of the Chiang Mai hotels that were top of mind when we planned our Thailand trip:
