So I recently told you all how I went through a few bumps when it came to accommodations here in Thailand. I also mentioned that I was in a position to move out of the place that I was in at the time and into a better one.
Well, I’m now sitting in that better place, and I can’t tell you how relieved I am. When I first came to Thailand I had to delay my arrival to my original accommodations so I found myself in a Airbnb that was less than desirable. No shade to Airbnb, as I love them. I ended up booking another place after about three days and found myself in a Condo in the heart of the city with panoramic views.
“So that I don’t lose you or confuse you let me give you a quick timeline of events regarding my displacement and bopping around Asia for the last month.”
April 11th– Arrived and went to an Airbnb (Guesthouse) after finding out that I couldn’t go to the my Workaway site until a week after I was originally scheduled to.
April 13th– Left the Guesthouse to go to a private condo by Stay In Chiangmai
April 17th– Went to the jungle to stay in what was supposed to be my own private luxury villa. If you haven’t already, read my blog post about this experience to see where it all went wrong.
April 20th– Left the Villa to go and get my own apt in a rush and immediately regretted it.
May 10th– Finally back to another private condo by Stay in Chiangmai
Now most of you don’t know me personally so this timeline may seem like no big deal, but this is insane to me. I am a person who recently came from an extremely stable life. I rarely ever moved or even changed my phone number.
I’m not a wild and free 20 year old, although I’m sure that based on my photos you thought I was…haha….I kid I kid but would completely understand if you thought I was a 20 year old. Lol
Getting back on track here….I was not feeling well with all of these changes. Coming to Thailand alone was nerve wracking enough, I never imagined being so displaced. I will say that if one has to suffer this in a foreign country, Chiangmai is the best place to do it. I have never felt more safe in a place seriously. I’ve never really felt afraid during all of this….just a bit stressed if I’m to be honest.
I find in life that I always, always end up where I need to be, or where I’m most comfortable. While going through all of that I knew that eventually I’d be ok.
Thanks to Stay in Chiangmai I’m more than ok, I’m GREAT! I love, love, love sitting here in yet another beautiful condo doing the work that I love. I actually needed to spend this last week catching up on some proposals and having a big and airy space has been so helpful when it comes to having a clear mind that allows me to be creative and much more productive.
There is a 7-11 (convenience store) attached to the building, so its so convenient for me to run down and grab miscellaneous items that I need, and I’m surrounded by cafes, restaurants, bars and more.
This property is located in the heart of the Chic Nimman area so I love that I can walk out of my door and feel the buzz of the city. The downfall for me has been all of the amazing shopping options and despite my best efforts not to fall prey, I found myself at the cutest little accessory shop called Pink Pvssy Accessories. The good thing is they offer goods to the public at wholesale prices, so while I scored some pretty cute items I didn’t break the bank. 🙂
As I stated before I have lots of work to get done this week before I head off to Bangkok, so I’m spending a great deal of time inside. I typically wake up at about 6 am and eat a bowl of fruit for breakfast while checking e-mails. I love doing it while looking out the window at the beautiful blue skies.
I then find myself maybe running out for lunch. I’m within walking distance of MAYA shopping center so I am lucky enough to be able to go to their bottom floor where an amazing food court is located. I think that one of the best vegetarian restaurants in town is housed there and I love the fact that its so accessible that I can eat there several times a day if I choose to.
Some days I may go out and network within the dynamic Chinag Mai Nomad and Expat community. I’ve met such cool people by doing this and made a few friends along the way.
And typically in the evenings I find myself teaching classes for VIP Kid. The office space here has been perfect for that.
If you can’t tell, I am in love with Stay in Chiangmai properties. They just get it right. They also always leave these cool guides in each unit that tell you things about the company, the area that you are living in, the culture and more. It also gives you tips on how to navigate around the city, where to shop and where to eat.
If you are planning a holiday, long-term or short-term in the Chiangmai area, I’d highly suggest reaching out to Stay in Chiangmai. They recently added a tours and activities component to their business and it gives their guests an easy and comprehensive way to wrap their brain around all that Chiangmai has to offer and takes away a lot of the guess work when it comes to planning fun excursions.
There are options for everyone from helicopter rides to cooking classes to spending a day with elephants and more.
Without a doubt, whenever I come to Chiangmai my first and only accomadation plans will be with Stay in Chiangmai and I’d advise anyone to do the same. They offer you spacious and beautiful living spaces with all of the comforts that you can imagine, and it feels as if you are living at a Friend’s house as they walk you step by step through anything that you could possibly imagine needing help with.
If you find yourself in Chiangmai renting from them, be sure to tell them that I sent you and let me know as well. I love to hear about how my reach may have influenced someone in a positive way.
