There are plenty of places to chill in this guesthouse just down the road from the cave.

Chiang Dao Huts consists of just that: several bungalows scattered about a garden, with a cute coffee shop and restaurant by the front entrance. While the bungalows with shared bathrooms are sufficient, the huts with private bathroom are a significant step up, though the bathrooms themselves are nothing to write home about. Aside from the small bathrooms, we found the beds to be soft and uncomfortable, a rather large fly in the ointment of an otherwise very pleasant guesthouse. Every room has TV, fan and WiFi, and should management ever choose to splurge on some better mattresses, this could be an excellent alternative to some of the more expensive options in the area.
