I wrote a review 4 days into my month long stay here.
When Nixon went to China in 197(0?), Henry Kissinger was at a cocktail reception and asked Chou en Lai his opinion of the impact of the 1789 French Revolution on world history. Chou's response? "It is too soon to tell."
I would have been wise to have heeded Chou's counsel before writing
There are two problems here. The first I noticed is that the place faces a nightclub complex that rocks out until 3 AM 7 days a week. There is also a hugely popular ladyboy revue across the street from the straight nightclub complex. I had to shut my windows to sleep and it was still pretty loud.
The second--and more ominous, is that I think I saw a middle aged Thai man with a very young (under 12 y/o) girl initiating things a middle aged man should not do with a child. I was on my balcony and saw this on the first floor patio three floors below me. It was dark, and I cannot say with absolute certainty she was that young. But she was very small.
The patio was accessed through the locked staff laundry room, and the only access was by hotel staff. I did not recognize the man, never saw him before or after. He saw me watching and they went inside.
As I said I cannot be absolutely certain that she was that young. But she was that small and could not possibly have been over 15.
So I was pretty creeped out and moved to the Royal Shilton Residence--500 baht a month cheaper, much quieter (so far). It is near the intersection of the Superhighway and Huay Keaw Road behind Wat Jed Yod. (4500 a month, 500 per night). It is a brand new structure, same cable package as Residence Loft, better hot water, 2/3 empty because it is not in tourist central and one would probably need a motorcycle to get around from here, although a 10 minute walk gets you to Huay Keaw Road where there are frequent songthaews.
I will wait a month before writing a review on the Shilton.

... city center and close to the action. Unfortunately we had paid for the hotel in full through a travel site. When we expressed our concerns to the owner, Pongsri, the following morning, she said that she understood, but unfortunately could not give us a refund since we paid through the travel site. At that point, I was ready to just cut our losses. We could get a 4 star hotel room in the city for around $50 a night (and after all the expenses of a wedding, $200 is almost ...
Busy, busy, busy few days hence the lack of blog but hopefully I'll be able to remember everything we've been up to! I'll split the days into seperate blogs so they aren't too long lol! On Friday we went to the Elephant Nature Park and our guide picked us up from our hotel, along with stopping off at a few other places to pick up more people (weirdly the next couple that were picked up after us were two girls who we recognised from being at Tiger ...
... man who is a retired pilot. He was excited to learn that we were Australian's because he flew there in his earlier days as an airforce pilot. We got chatting and Pol insisted that he would come and pick us up at 2PM to show us around Chiang Mai. We wanted to go to the Night Safari later at night so he said he would pick us up, show us some temples and shops before we headed to the Safari.
The Mecure is nice enough. We’ve been ...
Today was an ok day! The day started out a little rough with a difficult time meditating, then the morning asana session had a lot of ab workout, which I need but find hard! Other people also found it tiring, so that was that. I got some negative thoughts in my mind this morning. It was easy to send them away! The power of positive thinking! Like anything else, it gets easier with ...
This morning we had more free time which was used to catch up work that I have been putting off. It was a nice chunk of time to get some things accomplished which was much needed. We were going to do a continental breakfast type thing since everyone would be waking up at different times just toast and maybe cereal; however we had tried this before and every time we come down there is a feast of food waiting for us. Which I am not complaining ...
