Information on Chiang Mai Thailand
Chiang mai is a really cool city. It was really grown since I
visited here 10 years ago back in 2002. The city has some
trendy bars and condo projects along the river. The city have
several night markets and places to shop.
Chiang Mai is the lanna kingdom headquarters of years past. The
city is about 750 years old and the old moat that use to protect the
city still stands.
Take time to explore Chiang mai when your visiting Thailand,
you'll be glad you did.
Chiang mai Hotels
Chiang mai has budget hotels and 5 star hotels and everything in
between. Many guesthouses from as little as 500 baht and upwards.

Chiang Mai real estate in the city itself is very expensive. If
you drive a few kilo outside the city, costs are much less. You can
buy a decent house in Chiang Mai in the san sai area for less then 2
million baht. About sixty thousand usd.
Cost of living
I like the northern part of Thailand because the cost of living
is about half of what you spend in the island of the south like Koh
Samui or Phuket. Thinks like rent, food, transportation are all much
cheaper then one would pay say in Phuket or Pattaya beach.
Chiang Mai has many old temples and wats to see and visit. I'm
told there is one for every day of the year. may of these old Thai
temples are made from wood. Make sure to take in some of the old
ones like Doi Suthep and others.
