Nothing much wrong with the place; although could do with more light. Decent rooms and ok bathrooms and had a balcony looking over the river and a pool. But the place is very old fashioned with loads of "junk" everywhere. Some people might like that sort of thing though and I guess it does have a bit of charm. But overall a bit expensive for what it is.

I was presented with a cup of tea and my tray or clothes, and then went out to ...
... back and enjoying the view happens by default. Even the shorter trips are so much fun they should probably be illegal. There are plenty of songthaews that will happily overcharge you for the pleasure of a trip up the mountain just outside Chiang Mai. I baulk at that. I totally love my life right now. I just love it even more when I’m sitting on a scooter. Tomorrow we are off to Chiang Dao - it will take a few hours and I'm sure that I'll be saddle sore but I can't ...
This morning we had a rude awakening at 6:30 to the roosters outside our home. I could have sworn that they were inside our room at one point haha. The night was very cold, but we had 3 heavy blankets to keep warm (my Garfield blanket was envied haha). I think it was about mid thirties here at night time. When I got up to the bathroom I could see steam rising from my head in the mirror.
After breakfast, we travelled to the community center ...
