This was our second stay at Tri Gong. This time we stayed for two weeks and really got to know the area well. Tri Gong is well positioned inside the Noth East corner of the old city and inside the moat. If you ask for "jaang si poom, soi neung" you will get there. Sorngtau (the red two bench trucks) ply the inner moat road in anti-clockwise direction. If you want to walk to the southern end of the square it is best to use the inside soi as these are rarely crowded. nearby to Tri Gong are a laundry, a sewing ladyand numerous food places and bars. For upmarket dining The House and Ginger are on Moon Muang and our favourite for well priced and excellent service was "Good", a Burmese family restaurant twenty meters from Tri Gong.
Tri Gong itself has soft (for Thailand) beds and private bathrooms. This is not a luxury place but well above a normal backpackers guesthouse. It is vey well run and the family, under the patriarch Sam, are welcoming and speak good English. Sam is a well informed and highly intelligent man with a wide range of interests. I miss our morning chats.
Rooms are adequate and good value. This is a good choice for families. I can also say that we never had pressure to go on trips but I know that the ones they can book for you are carefully chosen and the best that Chiang Mai has to offer. I know Chiang Mai pretty well and have been on most of the trips at one time or another. Unfortunately, in my early visits I made a few mistakes and this would not of happened if I had gone through Tri Gong. The Tri Gong staff are about offering an honest good value service and for this alone I would highly recommend them. I shall be going back to them on my next trip. For the price they charge I don't hesitate to give them 5 stars.
