We have 10 places to stay in and around Chiang Rai.
Chiang Rai has some very good choices in all price ranges with a particularly fine selection of budget and flash-packer options. There is a concentration of budget spots on and around Jedyod Road and a great series of mid-range options on Jedyod’s prolongation, Soi Sunpanad. There are also a couple of large hotels – Wiang Inn and Wangcome – down Phaholyothin but otherwise guesthouses and hotels are rather randomly scattered across town so it is useful to have an idea of exactly where you’re going before you arrive. No doubt to encourage visitors to stay longer many places offer bicycle and motorbike hire and provide maps and information and unless you are in a desperate hurry, we would recommend allowing at least two or three nights in the city.
