Some good tips:
» First of all, if your stay will be 2 or 3 or someday more, you have to take into account how you are going to get around the city.
If you are going to do so by taxi, tuk-tuk or with a private vehicle, the only recommendation is that the hotel is not far from the tourist areas shown on the map.
In the case of using collective public transport, which is highly recommended, in adition it should be located as close as possible to the MRT subway network or BTS Skytrain.
» The warm humid weather penalizes the effort of outdoor transfers, especially in the central hours of the day. A taxi ride can help, when the time comes.
» For a one-day visit, bear in mind the departure airport and plan carefully the sites to visit.
Depending on your schedule, the hotel will have to be located either close to the area where you will spend your leisure time (if you arrive in Bangkok at night) or close to the departure airport (if you leave the city early in the morning).
» In Bangkok, think about the possibility of coming back to the hotel at noon, to enjoy a repairing nap or just recover in the swimming pool or play in the room with air conditioning for a while. In case you think it’s a good idea, keep this in mind when choosing your hotel, this is the right time.
» My personal experience travelling throughout Thailand is that, in general, 3-star hotels should have a minimum rating of 7.5 on booking.com.
If you are interested in any accommodation but it does not reach this score, it is worth checking the reviews to know the reason. The 4-star hotels must exceed at least 8.0 score.
Where to lodge in Chiang Mai?
The shaded area is the one we suggest if your intention is to move around the city centre on foot.
If you are going to move with your own vehicle or using public transport, then it does not matter if you are a little further away.
The best accommodation area in Chiang Rai
The city centre is quite small, so if the idea is to walk without renting any vehicle, then it is better to reserve the accommodation within the shaded area.
Keep in mind that the Blue and the White temples or the Black houses are located on the outskirts of Chiang Rai, so you cannot go walking.
