Its located in a secluded spot, well away from any road

Mods:  Please refer this to the Cartography Forum for resolution.  Thank you.

 

It's both,

 

Yes and it is both very quiet and very noisy too. Right.

haul your ----s down there next week and check it out.

Find somebody else to order around who gives a damn.  Nothing of interest for me in that area of town.

Like I said, it's quiet, the buildings next to the moat road blocks the sound. Now if you don't 'give a dam' no need to post ok?  

 

As always are hopes and prayers are with you. 

 

Cheers

There is a massive amount on offer in Chiang Mai, clearly depends what interests you, but in no particular order:

 

The CM Night Market is walking distance to you, start around 6 pm.

 

There are several Muay Thai training schools.

 

Chiang Mai Night Safari has special cheap prices now but will require a car trip of around 30 mins from where you are.

 

Old Town is okay to walk around in but Nimman is a place with some good restaurants as well, it has the best massage spas as well. Healthland just opened in CM and is worth a visit, though the masseuses are horrendously unattractive compared to other spas.

 

The best mall is Central Festival with some good restaurants, cinema and most of what you get Bangkok by way of malls.

 

There's Doi Suthep, a bit of a drive out in the mountains.

 

Queen Sirikit Botanical gardens are open.

 

There is a lot going on around the universities in terms of sport and food.

 

There's archery cafes in a side road next to Central.

If I were a tour guide I would be wearing a license hanging on a cord around my neck.

 

What interests me?  Why is that your business?

 

"Black lesbian"  Oh you racist sexist dog.

Never put anyone on ignore before but there is no point reading your nonsense

Thanks, this is the sort of info the forum is about, not childish nonsense and argument baiting.

They also have live music at the Prominada on Friday nights which is about 5 kilometers outside town, no need for you to go though as you would be able to hear the music from your centrally located hotel

You're welcome.

 

Some culinary pointers, if you like french baguette the place to go is L'Opera which has baguette, patisserie and good breakfast on the same quality level as Paris. It's opposite Anantara resort. The Japanese St Etoile copy in Central is the second best choice for bread. 

 

In Central the best restaurant is Idin Klin Krog but there's a number of good options. For more upmarket food The House by Ginger, relatively close to you in the old town is my top pick. 

 

Another secret tip of a new restaurant that just opened a few months ago is We la Dee, a bit of car trip to San Sai but the food is upmarket for Chiang Mai and it's getting rave reviews.

 

Less expensive options are Mitmai (Yunnanese Chinese), The Swan (Burmese), Khao Soi Islam, Khao Soi Khun Yai (close to you), Kiat Ocha for pork satay and Hainanese Chicken, Tong Tem Toh only if you like northern barbecue and only in the evening, they're in Nimman. Garibaldi an upscale Italian is also in Nimman.

Promenada is a weird place but the best for buying high end computer gear with Icon plaza. There's also a Japanese style music bar there with hostesses.

 

They also have live music in Central in a nice atmosphere in largish bar overlooking the square, now rebranded as My Vietnam, though the Vietnamese food is limited bar fare in reality. More for drinks and music.

 

Warm up Cafe is also open for the ultra-trendy in Chiang Mai.

Don't suppose there are any lukung/morlam cafes left? There were some even in hotels in 1996, last time I stayed there, if not is there an Issan Tawang deang type place?

There is Mojo Cafe. Rasmee sometimes plays there but it's temporarily closed now I think.

 

Rasmee still lives in Chiang Mai, you could write to her, she'd know.

Huan Soontaree is also a good bet to listen to Traditional Thai music.

I love the "scheme" because it's really a "scheme." 

The government gives you vouchers for 40% off hotel rooms at hotels where the normal price has been increased by 40% (if not more).  Schemers be a-scheming.
