Best Chiang Mai Accommodation

So before you ask the question about accommodation you can head to my friend, Adrien’s website for some great information and options – http://www.grownupplayground.com/chang-mai-monthly-accommodation/

Basic Accommodations Map 

About this map, these are good areas to move into if you are staying longer term and especially if you are more of a digital nomad type. The black circle is Santitham, my area, and monthly accommodation is between 3000-7000 baht. The green circle is Jet Yod, around monthly accommodation is between 4000-12000 baht. The red circle is Nimman, around monthly accommodation is between 5000-15000 baht.

*** You may get cheaper or more expensive but these are averages. I suspect there are over 400 accommodation places in just those 3 circles, so get on a bike and find somewhere you like.
