BanThai Village is an environmentally focused oasis in the middle of Chiang Mai. Despite it's central location, it is remarkably quiet. Visitors can relax poolside whilst sampling one of the many exotic and fresh drinks on offer at the bar, serviced by friendly and hard working staff. Those who have little time for such frivolities can stay on top of work by utilising the free and surprisingly fast wi-fi on offer. Don't worry if you haven't come equipped with a laptop or tablet, as visitors can make use of the computers in the reception.
In the evening, after a hard days sightseeing many of the adjacent temples, visitors can relax in the poolside garden and enjoy being serenaded by a 'Kim', a traditional South-east Asian stringed instrument.
BanThai Village is just a stone's throw from the Night Market, a bazaar filled with everything a tourist might need, from ninja stars (or 'Shuriken') and discount pepper spray to souvenir Buddhas and toy elephants. After stocking up on wooden replicas of the local fauna, visitors can sit down at one of the many modestly priced restaurants scattered around downtown Chiang Mai.
The staff at BanThai Village put the customers first (thankfully) and will take care of any problems or queries you have in a heartbeat.
Please note that I visited this hotel in the Christmas season and so had to endure the western Yuletide music blaring through the reception speakers at all hours. Bring earmuffs.
