You’ll see a sign for the longstanding Chiangtung House on the right-hand side as you enter town. Run by a friendly, elderly Shan couple from Kengtung in Burma’s Shan State, this is your best budget bet in Wiang Haeng proper.

Set in a small yard/carpark just off the main road you’ll find the reception and cafe area immediately to your left followed by two one-storey white blocks housing the ten or so rooms. The yard isn’t a high point of Thai landscape gardening but it does cut out traffic noise and though the blocks look a bit grungy from the outside, the interiors are adequate. Rooms are functional in that while decoration consists of mould patches on the walls, the air-con, fan, TV, hot water and even WiFi do all function!

Motel-style rooms.

The run-down tiled rooms and bathrooms are kept as clean as possible and we’ve slept on a lot worse mattresses. There’s a choice of small fan rooms, (a bit too small for our liking), larger fan rooms and a couple of air-con options as well—regardless of the cooling method, all have attached bathrooms with hot showers. Across the board rooms have tables and chairs out front and there’s free tea and coffee in the morning. Note, WiFi does get pretty ropey as you get further from reception.

If Chiangtung House is full, the hardware store opposite has some basic rooms for rent. Room rates are slightly negotiable and there are no seasonal rates. Chiangtung House on the right-hand side as you enter Wiang Haeng—if you reach the 7-eleven you’ve gone too far.
