Are you looking for a luxurious stay at one of the best hotels in Chiang Mai? One of the most important things about vacation, or long term-stay, is where you lay your head down at night, and let’s be honest what amenities are offered. In Chaing Mai, the hotels are beautiful, affordable, and clean. Many of them have pools, beautiful gardens, and relaxing atmospheres. So splurge a little and treat yourself to a memorable trip to Thailand.

If this is the first time you are traveling to Chiang Mai, you may want to stay in the old city. This is where you will find lively day and night markets full of local goods and street food, a huge cafe culture, and some of the best nightlife. Plus, it is only about a mile big, so you can easily get around.

You can always choose to stay away from the city. The perks to this are the quietness and small-town vibes you can get from staying somewhere more local. You will need to rent a scooter, order a grab, or find a tuk-tuk to take you into town from your accommodation. Some of these boutique hotels in Chiang Mai have a taxi service on site.

If you are like me and love to travel then you know how important is it to have a good pillow with you. This travel pillowcase is one of the best small comforts to bring around the world with you!
