Safe, clean, spacious, professionally run with laid-back atmosphere, Libra Guest House Chiang Mai
Three different stays using this guesthouse as a base for solo-traveler in Chiang Mai and throughout Northern Thailand. Booked direct, via www.librahousechiangmai.com, based on word of mouth from past guests. Family-owned/managed and located on a quiet, single-lane road near the edge of Old Chiang Mai. Convenient short walking distance to cafes, restaurants, blind massage therapists, and sites. Rooms vary from basic to upward; a simple fan room worked well for me. Very hot showers. Dao is the primary manager who, at your request, will take her time to provide honest guidance beyond your expectations helping you make the most of your time in Chiang Mia as well as Northern Thailand. Breakfast is available in a warm, charming area conducive for meeting fellow travelers. I highly recommend overnight trekking through three villages to an elephant base camp along a river where elephants are released at night into the jungle. In the morning with guide you locate, retrieve, feed, and bathe/pet elephants. Enjoy a 16-20 km rafting trip, view a 120 ft waterfall, and relax in warm mineral spring fed pools with views.
