Fast forward one year and I’m back in Chiang Mai! If you guys remember, I was in Chiang Mai last year with Pandora for a few quick days. This time we were able to get back here, really unwind, and spend some time exploring this beautiful place. We spent our time in Chiang Mai checking out the temples at sunrise to visiting the elephants. During our visit, we were invited to stay at Chandra Residence for a few nights, and had the most incredible stay with such perfect hosts.
Chandra Residence is a private four bedroom guesthouse located ten minutes from Chiang Mai’s town. It’s on a quiet, but large property, and has staff on site, yet you feel incredibly relaxed and secluded during your stay here. Only four of us occupied the giant house located here. We’d definitely recommend booking this place while travelling with a group of friends due to it’s size.
The property manager was the best and arranged all our off site activities, including a driver, which I’d highly recommend having during your stay here. One night during our stay we were treated to a home cooked Thai meal by the head chef from A Lot of Thai which you can see more of below. She made us the best Thai food, and it truly felt like we were in her home, (even though we weren’t) while enjoying some of the best Thai food I’ve ever had. And trust me, I’ve had a lot of Thai food in my life! I could go on, but it was truly just the most relaxing part of our trip, and I couldn’t recommend it more. See below for images from the house, including our farewell breakfast and surprise dinner, it was such an amazing experience, I can’t thank the small team and owners at Chandra Residence enough for making our Chiang Mai trip so memorable!
