The question we are most often asked by potential guests is “How far are you from the Old City?”
Additionally, a recurring comment included in the excellent reviews we receive is “…. it is a little far from the city….”
We would like to be clear about exactly where we are. Baan Kiri is located on the outskirts of Chiang Mai at the foot of Doi Suthep Mountain. It takes about 15 minutes to get into the old city from Baan Kiri.
The map here shows details the nearby area:
• The jungle is 300m up the road
• Café Neo is 500m away
• The local high street starts 750m down the road
• Centre of the Universe (salt water pool) 1.5km
• The highways of Canal Road and Huay Kaew Road (at the entrance to Chiang Mai University) are 2km away
• Maya Shopping Centre and trendy Nimmanhaemin Road 3km
• Centre of the old city is 5.5km
We encourage prospective guests to consider how they will get around during their stay with us. We have bicycles and motor scooters for rent here and this is by far the most efficient way to get around in Chiang Mai. However, if you have never driven a scooter before or do not feel confident about driving one, then we do not recommend this option.
We can arrange a rental car starting from 1,500 THB per day, or you can search the internet for special deals.
Alternatively we can arrange transport for you using one of our trusted red truck (Song Thaew) drivers. For example, they will charge 200 Baht to go into the old city. They are also available for half/full day excursions, offering a cost effective and hassle free way to get around. For details on taxi prices click here.
