    Chiang Rai: Garden House
    A really nice guesthouse in Chiang Rai is Garden House (formerly Ya-house), 1,5km west of the main strip/market/bus station. 150 B for a "bungalow" (to storey private small houses with a balcony), a shady, palmy garden and the most dedicated owner I have met. (He offered all kinds of help when I was running around trying to buy a bike)

    FROM DAVIDFL on 13 Dec 2007
    Just spent a night in Chiang Rai & my fave hotel, the Nimseeseng was booked out, so my riding buddy Mark Rossi in town ahead of me got us into the Sport Inn oposite the Red Rose Hotel for 500 baht a night.
    Now it seems to me as if this high season is going to be a good one with hundreds of Bkk Thais touring around in their cars, & rooms might not always be so easy to getfirst up, or without a booking. So I cruised around town a bit checking out the parking situation & noted that the Sabai Inn, just a few hundred metres from the Sport Inn looks similar, but with under cover parking. Might be worth checking out for next time.

    • See View Guesthouse (053 681556), 70 Wiangmai Rd, a bit outside town, on the other side of the river (turn left after crossing the bridge, 10 mn walk from station). You will probably be met by the owner at the bus station who will propose to give you the ride / Huge and comfortable rooms w. shower 150 (Sgl or dbl occupancy), Bungalows 250 / Trekking / Bikes for rent / Go there for the best rooms in town at excellent value if two people, the big open space next to the river, the relaxing restaurant, the pick up service from and to the station / What you may not like : being outside of town, not being completely isolated from the traffic noise, being wake up at 4am by excited roosters, the not so fresh nor charming concrete rooms
    • Riverside Guesthouse, from the bus station, turn left, then right, then right again on the street parallel to the Youm river, 5mn walk in total / Various size rooms go for 100 or 180 Sgl or Dbl occupancy / Great relaxing terrace / Trekking / Go there for the atmosphere and the good central location, to eat or relax at the terrace while looking at the river / What you may not like : the not so cheap basic rooms, the proximity of the road
    • North West Guesthouse (053 681956), just before the above, on the other side of the road, same management / The cleanest & freshest looking rooms in town (90 or 160 Sgl or Dbl occupancy) but without the river view atmosphere...
    • Mae Sariang Guesthouse, even closer to the bus station, same road as above / Very basic rooms 60 or 100 without or w. shower / No charm, noisy and a bit dirty but cheap and centrally located...

    For food: right next door is T-corner, which is not bad.

    Mae Sot for a few months now at Phannu House. Fairly modern, friendly, good service. Coming into town from the Burma side it's just before the traffic police, where the road splits into two one-way streets on the right.

    AC rooms available.

    I prefer Casa Mia Restaurant, excellent Thai, Burmese and western food.

    Opens 7h for breakfast, I'm there every day.
    To find it, go West past a lot of bars about 500m or so, turn right into the only large road there is.

    2. Resort run by Dutch guy. (His card all in Thai) Turn Left at side of MP gas station, on left going north through town. 053 388 255 Stayed here 1 nite, the Dutch guy, has about 5 brand new bungalows, 250 baht a nite. He even came out to main road to show us way in. Great Place.

    John is a characterful Aussie who went out of his way to help us - he straight off gave us a lift down to Tony's in his recently built chair outfit to pick up some bikes and then lent us full face lids from his own collection! He can ride a bit too....!!
    You have to take your chances on room availability as there is no booking system but there are quite a few rooms.

    1. KRUA CHIANG SAEN Restaurant. Another big thumbs up for this place.
    Excellent value for money, superb food, big servings low prices.
    River side on the 'Khong, opposite Gin's Ghouse at the Golden Triangle end of town!
    The Happy Go Lucky Girlfriend singer, who knows her food, insisted we eat there again. And we did last night: huge fish, fresh fresh vegies & tasty spicy Thai salads. And very inexpensive. Check it out. Highly recommended!

    ________________________________________
    Hi guys,
    Just wanted to let you know that the prices for our Place (on and Kurt's Restaurant and Guesthouse) and Cees Place have changed a little.

    Our room is now 250 Baht per night and still includes water at night and free brewed coffee in the morning. It is now a little suite with two nice sofa chairs, a sitting area outside the room and private bathroom with hot shower

    Cee's Bungalows now all have satelite TV and are 300 Baht per night

    Numerous guesthouses and Western restaurants have sprung up during the past year in Chiang Dao, which makes it a nice place to use for a base, when exploring Northern Thailand by motorcycle.

    The road to Chiang Dao, from Chiang Mai, is nearly completed and all paved now.
