Wealthy young Chinese visitors put Chiang Mai on the map as a trendy tourist destination, sparking a hotel-building boom in recent years. In 2016, Travel + Leisure ranked Chiang Mai second on its list of “World’s Best Cities,” crediting the laidback atmosphere of Buddhist temples along the beach for attracting tourists. The most popular time to visit is November for its now-famous Yi Peng Festival where paper lanterns are let off into the night asking Buddha for good luck.
Located within the moat and past gates slicing the ancient brick walls tracing Old City’s perimeters is the boutique Pingviman Hotel. The hotel is less than half a mile from Chedi Luang Temple and Wat Phra Singh and a free shuttle transports guests to the nearby Saturday Walking Street, the weekly market where vendors hawk trinkets, musical instruments, paintings and herbal remedies to crowds as the sun sets.
Accommodations are furnished with heavy traditional Northern Thai carved wood and folding windows connect bedrooms to the Jacuzzi tubs found in each expansive bathroom. Rooms have private balconies, air conditioning and flat screen televisions. Suites have an additional single bed, sleeping up to three guests, and all room rates include complimentary Wi-Fi and parking.
The hotel’s courtyard surrounds a turquoise pool lined by alternating palm trees and lounge chairs, each corner occupied by a breezy white cabana. The property also features a fitness center and dry sauna. To explore the area, the hotel provides bicycle rentals and car hires. The concierge can arrange tours for visitors and a free breakfast buffet is served daily.
