Chiang Mai, Thailand

Chiang Mai is a city in mountainous northern Thailand that dates back to the 1200s. Its Old City area still retains vestiges of walls and moats from its history as a cultural and religious center. It’s also home to hundreds of elaborate temples, including 14th-century Wat Phra Singh and 15th-century Wat Chedi Luang, adorned with carved serpents. Modern-day Chiang Mai has expanded in all directions, but particularly to the east towards the Ping River, where Chang Klan Rd, the famous Night Bazaar and the bulk of Chiang Mai's hotels and guest houses are located. The locals say you've not experienced Chiang Mai until you've seen the view from Doi Suthep, eaten a bowl of kao soi, and purchased an umbrella from Bo Sang.

Tue Apr 12 2016 12:03:58 GMT+0000 (UTC) In the midst of my research on the Digital Nomad Movement at Chiang Mai University, I learn a lot and come across some great resources. Some of you may have already seen notifications about this recently published eBook, but I wanted to spread the word about it. It is titled “NomadGuides - Chiang Mai”, authored by my friend and colleague Michael Hughes. An encyclopedic masterwork in its detail and breadth representing over 7000 hours of research [you read that right - 7000 hours!] and coming it at almost 400 pages, it is already considered the most comprehensive local information resource ever assembled for living in Chiang Mai, Thailand. Useful for newcomers and long-time locals alike, this is the single-most useful resource on Chiang Mai for those planning a visit, newcomers, and long-time locals. I can’t recommend it enough. Simply incredible.

Hi All! I plan to return to Chiang Mai after I complete my assignments in Berlin and the USA. Unknown arrival, but certainly before winter hits North of China. I am in Berlin at the moment, living hand to mouth waiting for payments due to me. Then to Chapel Hill, NC, to empty and sell or give away almost all of the rest of my past belongings. Liberation is nearly attained, and those items are the last ball on the chain... What's YOUR story at present?
