Chiang Mai - Love CNX


Love_to_eat_Thai

Recommended Posts

Had a few nights at the Love CNX (formerly Same Same) guesthouse in Chiang Mai.  Located in the old city about 5 minutes walk from the bar area on the east side of the city and about the same from the Saturday night market on the south side of the city.  

Book early to get a room with private bathroom, bed is super comfortable, room cleaned daily, air-con is awesome.  It's not a hotel so there's no night security staff, make of that what you will.  I paid just under 600 baht per night.

any suggestions?

There aren't that many bars there but loi kroh road probably has the most.

I normally stay at Ramming Lodge because it is right on Loi Kroh Road and it is a pretty nice place that is guest friendly.  

There are several other bigger hotels in the area but they are not quite as guest friendly.

 

What part of November are you going to be there?  

There is a very good chance I might be in CM as well in November

Nice!  Thanks... now that you mention it, I've heard of Ramming Lodge and forgot all about it.  Maybe i'll check it out.

I'm landing in BKK on Nov 21, but thinking of heading to Phnom Penh for a few days first. Still months away, so I'm sure my plans will change 18 times before then. hah. i'll definitely be in CM at some point that week. :P

Raming Lodge is my fav place to stay in CM. Free airport transfers, free decent breakfast and attached restaurant has the best burgers and ribs in Thailand I think. Add to that it is next to all the bars and is guest friendly.

nice.

how's the mongering in CM? Are there BG's? or is it more a place to hook up through TF?

Loi Khro Road, moat end, about 150m walk from Raming Lodge hotel. about ten bars with BG's.

Loi Khro Road, turn left out off Raming Lodge hotel, walk guess 800m towards the river end of the road. Cross a canal/creek: bar area on your right. Similar to Pattaya bar areas.

There are soapy massage parlours. I have been but years ago and do not remember details. One was near the railway station, called Sayuri, I think. The other was part of Phucome hotel, check web.

Is not that bad. Definitely fun to be had in the bars. If you walk out of Raming Lodge and go left there is a beer bar complex about 200 metres, if you turn right when you come out there are bars on the street. Don't expect to find a lot of young stunners though.

hah. ya, I wasn't expecting the quality and quantity of Patt's.   Mostly there to do something other than BG's. hahah. I hear nothing but good things about CM, so figured it's time I check it out.

Lonely Planet guidebook has excellent info including recommended walks for sightseeing with maps.

Many very good restaurants especially along the inner eastern side of the moat, Thapae Gate area.

Best single trip, tour to Doi Suthep wat (temple). Staggering.

Nice. I was just trying to google where all the nicest temples are.  thanks for the info, much appreciated.  Temples are definitely on the list. And a reputable (non abusive) elephant sanctuary. other than that, I don't know what else to do there.  I did read a bit on lonely planet, but didn't have the time to go through it all.

There are many temples within walking distance of Ramming Lodge.  I normally head across the street from Tha Phae Gate and just venture up those streets and you will find lots of them.

Sayuri is probably the best soapy there and will have the most choice.

Last time I was there in June I stopped by Celebrities late afternoon and they only had three girls working that day none of which I would take 

There are supposed to be a couple other ones farther out but I didnt make the trek last time.

 

I think Chiang Mai is a wonderful change of pace and you will have no trouble finding someone to share your bed.  Some of best nights with girls have been in Chiang Mai but as always I think it helps to have a connection with them.

Few ideas

Food

Restaurant attached to Raming Lodge is excellent.

Upmarket and awesome food is @Teak restaurant. Come out of Raming Lodge turn left and it is 100 metres or so on your right.

Best Chiang Mai food: Huen Penh (I eat lunch there most days and have done a dinner there as well a few times): https://www.eatingthaifood.com/northern-thai-food-huen-phen-restaurant-chiang-mai/

Nice restaurant with good bands on the weekend I like to go to: http://www.goodview.co.th/2010/foodandbeverage.php

Things to do

As mentioned Doi Sathep is worth a look.

My favourite is the Royal Garden : http://www.chiangmai.bangkok.com/attractions/royal-flora.htm

The site above has other things to do as well. The Zoo and Night Safari also quite good.

Good massage (massage only)

Directly acroos the road as you exit Raming Lodge. There are 2 massage parlours side by side. My favourite is the one on the left but both are good.

Hope that helps.

I dislike Raming Lodge.  It is in a state of disrepair.  Only thing good about it is the breakfast.  I usually stay at Duangtawan hotel, about 3 blocks across the street from the Raming.  It is a basic hotel, ok for a few nights.

How much should I expect to pay for a taxi from the airport to the city centre? What other transport options are available?

 Cheers

You can also use Uber....

Correct.

The Uber drivers in CM are a bit weary of the airport though due to their on-going issues with the red trucks, tuk tuk's etc.

    • Hi Guys

      As many of you know we have been running now for 16 years and apart from one brief time when we were allowed PayPal, so could use the inbuilt donation function, we have tried to avoid asking for donations. We have certainly avoided being in anyones face about it.

      Sadly that has now changed.

      The forum currently costs around $900 a month to operate. That includes Bangkok and Philippines but PA makes up the vast majority of it. This fee covers forum hosting, image hosting, notification emails and support.

      Before anyone says "its expensive" please be aware we have tried for years to find better for cheaper - it just doesn't exist for the size we are. Also a lot of hosts wont Touch us anyway. Our current host is actually cheaper than the previous one but that brings its own problems.

      Moving on -

      I would like to stress there is NO obligation whatsoever. Also, whatever happens the forum is going no-where!

      Donators can CHOOSE to have their donation listed (probably in this thread or we can make a new one) or to remain anonymous. Likewise they can CHOOSE whether the amount is published or not.

      There is no minimum, or maximum for that matter. ANY donation will be very gratefully received. We are very aware that many members are also having it tough these days.

      We are still unable to promote/post PayPal addresses etc on the forum so would ask that anyone who would like to make a donation to PM me, or ask me here to PM you and we will sort out details via that PM.
