Decided to break the boat trip from Tha Ton - Chiang Rai here on recommendation of another traveller, having been told that the river lodges were basic but remote and that the night time chorus from frogs and birds was amazing. We hadn't pre-booked (which most other guests apparently had; there seemed to be lots of people on 3 day... More

Good place to chill out, good food, good price... We had a really good stay. Nan, the owner, is a really good and interesting person. If you have the opportunity, go by boat from chiang rai (1h30, 1 departure per day at 10:30 am), the trip by itself worth it!

The owner is very friendly and chatty. A good guide and a very knowledgeable local. I stayed here for one night during my adventures in northern Thailand. You should know that this place is remote. No cell reception and no bus service. But with your own car/motorcycle/scooter or guide you can get here pretty easily from Chiang Rai. This is... More

My Dream is an ok place if you are looking for something remote and very, very rustic. It is in a beautiful river valley that feels quite isolated, though not too far from Chiang Rai. We stayed in two river front bungalows which could be priced even less, due to their extremely basic offerings. In fact, one did not even... More

Unfortunately for us, this was not the experience we were expecting. We are a young couple and booked one night. Resume: Do not book in advance like us (8 months in advance), because customers that booked "only" 3 months earlier were prioritary. The place is really authentic, but the logistics are really really bad. Nan is correct but not really... More

I spent three days at My Dream, with Nan picking me up at Chiang Rai airport (you can also catch the long tail ferry boat, which leaves ciang rai mid-morning, and could be an interesting way to go). It was still the rainy (low) season and i was the only guest. The river side bungalows are lovely -'and not nearly... More

We spent three nights in one of the river view bungalows of My Dream Guest House (MDGH). We had arranged to take a VIP Green bus from Chang Mai to Chiang Rai (an inexpensive, beautiful, and comfortable 3 hour trip), and Nan, the owner/operator of MDGH, met us at the bus station and drove us out to the location, which...

We stayed here this February and had a lovely riverside bungalow. The accommodation represented very good value for money as did the restaurant. We were quite suprised by the actual cost of a day's guided tour though as were quoted 6500 baht for the two of us initially. We did in fact pay 4000 baht in the end which was... More

I came to this guesthouse due to the good reviews on trip advisor, and I have to agree that it is really very beautiful. The setting on the river is scenic and relaxing, and it is the only accommodation located in that small village. The bungalows are the best bungalows I had in the last six months of traveling (I...

My wife and I recently did a 3-day trek with Mr. Naan after staying one night at his beautiful guest house in Chiang Rai. We were there over Christmas of 2012, he was prompt with picking us up from the airport, transported us to his guest house and upon arriving made sure we had everything we needed. It truly is...
