Yindee Stylish Guesthouse
Travel Blogs from Chiang Mai
Coming in early Sunday morning, weather, fresh air (compared to Bangkok!!), were the first things we noticed. Quickly grabbing a map from the tourist center, we start heading to the old part of Chiang Mai where our guest house was.
Taxis here are quite different. They're like small vans, with open doors in the back where you just hop in …
Flew up to Chiang Mai on Friday morning having discovered much to my dismay that other people actually wanted to get there an all the overnight trains were booked out. Also discovered that my suitcase was 30kg while Lisa's was now conveniently 25kg. Suspicious to say the least.
Stayed at the Yindee Stylish Guesthouse - just a little step …
... the stage. Plus their voices were still very rough and a bit aggressive. One of them came up to dan and asked in the deepest roughest voice 'you want a drink then laughed said no sorry and repeated it again in the highest girliest next voice. The oddest thing was that they were all walking round within these giant penis whistles in their cleavages.

... Unfortunately "my" monk's English was limited to: "Fro wha **** you for" I abandoned my efforts to delve further but I would have asked many burning questions such as, "If your parents hadn't packed you off to a monastery when you were a small child would you have preferred to be a striker with Chiang Mai Rovers? Or - what with all that chanting and praying don't you get hungry not eating anything after noon?" It was time to return the bikes ...
... to stay the night with the Lahu tribe at the top of a mountain. The views were amazing but shame about the toilet (another hole in the floor in the pitch black with no electricity) and lack of sleep (Lu hates cockrals, especially those that start at 2am and don't shut up until dusk). Dinner was really tasty and was topped off by the local children singing to us.
Day 2 bought more trekking, but definitely not as hard, however ...

TravelPod Member ReviewsYindee Stylish Guesthouse Chiang Mai
Tucked away in a perfect location in the heart of Chiang Mai, everything was just spectacular. The warm welcome, the early checkin, rooms being clean, simple, and just the right size.. You feel so comfortable in this place, steps away from great places in Chiang Mai.
Massages, food, travel agencies, moped rentals and more are just steps away. This place is located in what looks like a tidy alleyway actually connecting two major roads, so you don't get all the noise from the main streets. Extremely clean area..
You can find plenty of Thai food everywhere, but just around this location you'll have an Irish pub, an Australian owned restaurant, and more international stuff too if you like to take a quick break from Thai every once in a while.
Really liked this place and highly recommend it!
