There are many different rated reviews of the Krisdadoi Resort in Hang Dong, Chiang Mai..
As an experienced Thailand traveller (more than 150 visits) I must say, this is an absolutely beautiful Thai-Thai location for finding peace and tranquility. Any other STAR Hotels may have the "I feel better" FLASH, but here you enjoy the real Northern Thai hospitality and way of living.
No this place is not made for excourstions, however renting a driver for 1000 Baht a day gives you any place to visit around Chiang Mai, including dinner in town and strolling over the Night market (different than in other places.
I rather prefer to spend more time up in the mountains and freeing your own spirit. Not to hear cars and planes noises just nothing and getting bothered by some bird songs.
Aplace to hide out and take an extensive walk int the beautiful park, or just sit down and read a book in moderate temperature.
Simple but good Thai food in the local restaurant is finally ending you day by going to bed early.
You should not miss this place!More
