We had the pleasure of staying in one of the vacation rentals towards the back of Baan Kang Wat. During our stay, we experienced some unfortunate medical issues and the hosts, Brook and her husband, went out of their way to take care of us. It was such a pleasant place to begin with (fresh fruit slushes, delicious coffee and ice cream, incredibly inspired crafts, beautiful architecture and aesthetic overall, etc...) that the care and attentiveness of the hosts took the experience over the top.

This was a favorite place for the family as well. We were with two roudy toddlers and everyone was very kind and welcoming.

Additionally there was an epic Sunday morning market with delicious food, baked goods, and hand made crafts.

A must visit!

This arts community is a peaceful place to meander the shops and get coffee at the cafe. We didn't buy anything but were tempted by many items. The shops have unique things- not the mass produced stuff you see all over SE Asia. It looks like they have performances there, too, as there was an amphitheater in the center.

Perched on the edge of the city this is a lovely place to come to chill and have a long chat and coffee in peaceful surroundings. The folk here are lovely and there is an artistic aesthetic. Some of the prices are a little steep so check whether they are made on site or you could buy the same in Chaing Mai. Worthwhile walking around the nearby wat.

It's a very green open space which shows you the mixture of traditional and modern Thai. The idea of this space is very nice that is created a supportive community of local artists and businesses. I had very relaxing time and it was just enough for one time. I don't think I will visit it soon in future. But if you like taking photos, like cute little handicraft things, Bann Kang Wat is a place for you!

I go to the morning market here nearly every Sunday. Its a great place for baked goods like pastries and croissants along with a variety of shops, market stalls and even a place for foot massage.

I highly recommend a visit.
