Travel Blogs from Chiang Mai
Personal Reflection and June 11th Twenty two days ago I left Minneapolis. I came here to accomplish many things, experience another culture, and to get out on my own. For me, this was the first step for many more travels. I was nervous, yes, but more excited. Before leaving, I remember having one instance of talking to Adam about how I was nervous, other than that, pure excitement.

TravelPod Member ReviewsNew Mitrapap Hotel Chiang Mai
So affordable and very good value. One of the cheapest accommodation options we came across and we were very impressed with the cleanliness and quality of the simple rooms. All u need in a hotel and very liveable- with tv, daily towel/water changes/bed making, airconditioning and clean basic ensuite. toast and tea/coffee available for breakfast which was a bonus for good room price. loved the closeness to china town/ warorot markets and river. only 5 mins walk to night bazaar. no loud music or bars in immediate area so great for sleep. but only short walk to le croi st anyway.
see u next time mitrapap
