Title: Chiang Mai - Tips
Post by: MightyInvestor on March 04, 2018, 07:39:23 PM
Team GCC,

I'm FI and have been spending most of my travel time in the U.S. and Europe.  But this spring I want to branch out and spend some time in Asia.

Am thinking of using Chiang Mai as my hub.  I would like to spend a couple of months there.

I wanted to ask if you have any suggestions about time of year, accommodation, etc.  Also, are there any great websites you recommend as resources for figuring out the basics--such as how long you can be there as a tourist?  And any reason why Chiang Mai is a bad idea and somewhere else is way better?

Thanks for any input you can provide.

Hey Tom

Here is a link to where we stayed:

This is a site I used for figuring out some visa stuff:

I think best time of year for north Thailand is Oct - Feb, or whenever they start burning all of the fields

CM is great, we stayed there 2 months and had a great time. It's a good place to meet a lot of expats / digital nomads / early retirees
