Chiang Mai House Rental

Chiang Mai House Rental

Finding a good house rental in Chiang Mai can be a cumbersome task. Sure, there were options—but most of them only had 1 or 2 bedrooms, no kitchen, and absolutely no yard (high-rise condo-style). That’s not our idea of living!We knew we wanted to be outside of the city so that we could have a yard, access to a swimming pool, and an overall quieter pace. Thankfully, we finally ran across a great couple...

Indoor Play Place in Chiang Mai

Indoor Play Place in Chiang Mai

If you spend any decent amount of time in Chiang Mai, Thailand, you will find yourself searching for some play places to entertain your children. Suan Buak Haad is a public park in the southwest corner of town with some grass, a pond, and dilapidated playground equipment that is still perfectly sufficient and entertaining for kids. However, you will soon be melting in the heat and humidity, so I’ve found...

Chiang Mai Meechok Plaza and Market

Chiang Mai Meechok Plaza and Market

The Meechok Plaza is located on the second ring road and the corner of the Mae Jo Road leading out of Chiang Mai. Fortunately for us, it was only about a 10 minute motorbike ride from our rental on the outskirts of Chiang Mai—and the drive didn’t require us to enter the city at all!

Flower Festival in Chiang Mai

Flower Festival in Chiang Mai

The 1st weekend in February, Chiang Mai hosts a Flower Festival near the Southwest corner of the moat. A parade winds through the old town, but instead of waking up early and trying to track it down, we decided to simply meet it at the end near the family park in the Southwest corner. This is where all of the street vendors set up their stands—including food, clothing, and flowers! The prices seemed to be...
