Our apartments in Chiang Mai at Pornpen Place

Finally, we moved after a long search for an apartment! The fact that we went around a lot of apartments in Chiang Mai, there is at least one plus - we have written posts Overview of apartments in Chiang Mai with an overview of about 30 places and Tips for renting apartments in Thailand. If you need a home, I have an instruction: How to book a house in Thailand - 5 ways.

And housing for a short period can be searched throughsearch engine hotels and guesthouses, where thousands of hotels, there are reviews on them, and you can book in advance while looking for an apartment. We also have our own Guesthouse overview Chiang Mai.

In fact, for those who come for the first time,it makes sense to look like this and form an opinion about housing in Thailand. And it is also desirable to live a month here, a month there. Then another city to change, live in the north, live in the south by the sea. And then, the next time you can immediately understand what you exactly want, and how much you are willing to pay for it, and immediately go to a particular city and a particular place.

We ourselves slowly come to the idea that it is better to shoot your house in thailandthan an apartment. Let it be further away from the city, but in silence and in relaxation, which is more suitable for work and leisure. Yes, while there are costs for a bike, but they are not very large. True, it is still necessary to learn how to ride, but this is fixable.

At the same time, we really lost the view of the Doi mountain.Suthep with a small, but full balcony. And they also changed the musical accompaniment - the cafe changed under the window. How Thais like live music! Now, for example, smoke on the water is played, of course they play well, but I hope to finish by night.

On the second day the ants came to us, whomwe were all so promised. Now we will think what to do with them. But in our first apartment in a month they have never been, although there was a lot of food in the room, although we lived on the 8th floor.

Ants also live on one of the stairs.

Everything is good in our condo, except the name. And even asking is somehow inconvenient what was meant by this. Of course, it does not appear in any way, but it is curious.

We have here only 3 floors, and 10 rooms. The decor is very friendly, few people, everyone knows each other. The woman at the reception is also lovely and always smiles and laughs. In general, everything is at home, and even the shoes should be left in front of the entrance.

The building is new and we assume that in ournobody has lived in a room yet, which is good news. The only pity is that there are no bonuses in the form of a pool and fitness, well, to grab a lot of money. But next to us is through the house minimarket 7/11, and in 5 minutes Tesco Express supermarket and Thanin Maket market.

Have you ever seen the Thai calendar? We stand in the hall. According to it, we tried to explain with what number we need an apartment.

Life hacking 2 - how to find a hotel 20% cheaper

First, choose a hotel on Booking. They have a good offer base, but the prices are NOT the best! The same hotel can often be found 20% cheaper in other systems through the RoomGuru service.
