What is the quietest and most upscale place to live within 10 klicks of CMU?

Recommended Posts

I do not mind the air pollution, but when you add on rising seas to the noise from Prasert Land, then it becomes too much.

 

Much of our world will be devastated by sea level rise, very soon.

 

And, so, I just ask for a bit of peace and quiet before the water inundates us.

 

Please refer to this NYT article, for example:  https://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2019/10/29/climate/coastal-cities-underwater.html

Yes.  However, I am also afraid that If I do not find the right place, even though I might escape Prasert Land, then I might end up in a place where there are workers who raise chickens and roosters.  The roosters are even worse than Prasert Land.  The roosters here do not know how to tell time, and they crow almost constantly.

 

There MUST be a quiet place near here.  It is just a matter of how much you are willing to pay.  RIght?

I really do not understand it.

I stayed in Oneplus condo a few years, just two streets from Soi 6 / Prasert  land and I never heard it at night. Noise stopped at 10 p.m. or so and with some white noise from the aircon and could not hear it.

I am saying this as a noise sensitive person.

Lanna Thara Moo Baan on Ratchrupruek Road. I've been here 11 years. Its a clean and well organised gated community. Handy to everywhere.

Short of mounting 24-hour surveillance for a week or so on a prospective property, no.

I've got used to the roosters and geckos in my GF's village.

Just rent a condo for a month, and move on if it turns out to be unsuitable.

I needed to escape the noise at my previous house also. Now I rent a place in Lannaville off the middle ring road near Meechok Plaza and its great. This is a very upscale moo bahn. Some of the nicest houses I have seen in Chiang Mai (I am talking more than 20M Bht. nice). I can hear a little traffic noise from the ring road but no booming music at all ever. Great location too.

I'm in Nong Han. Between the neighbour on the left with his pack of 5 dogs howling and the neighbour on the right with his powertools going every day for hours and the fantastically loud loudspeakers with 6.50 am wake up announcements I'd say this is probably not the place for peace and quiet.

Why do you stay?

I live in Nong Han, San Sai too. 
The birds (feathered variety) causes a real racket every morning. I’m thinking of getting a shotgun and blast them all to smithereens. The few cows in the field opposite my house fortunately don’t moo or I will bbq them on my grill. Th leaves rustle in the wind so I cut the trees down. Now, just trying to figure out how to stop my gf from listening to her morlam music 🙂
