There’s a dizzying selection of accommodation choices & types available both in & around Chiang Mai, ranging from homestays, self-catering & budget right up to luxury boutique hotels, resorts & 5* luxury hotels the choice really is yours !.
There’s an old traveller’s saying that “the best places are always the hardest to reach”, and that is certainly the case with most of the homestay’s located around Chiang Mai, Thailand. The whole meaning of “Homestay” in Thailand is getting involved in the grassroots culture of Thai life,this can typically mean watching & helping in the production of basically anything from rice & vegetables through to a wide range of handicrafts such as wood carving, making clothes & handmade silver jewelry.
Quite a lot of the homestay’s in this area are run by various groups of different village Hill Tribes people,as the name suggests they typically live up in the hills located around Chiang Mai as well as further afield in both Mae Hong Son to the north-west & Chiang Rai to the north-east.
The journey up to the homestay’s can often be quite arduous,but the reward for this is a unique perspective of how a life less cluttered & structured can be !!.
As an approximate guide the closest homestays are located between 2-3 hours drive from Chiang Mai, the number of days that you stay in the villages is really up to you,they are very flexible.
Prices typically range from 500Baht/day upwards.
