Baan Orapin Heritage B&B

Chiang Mai, Thailand


The excellent breakfast is provided in an open wooden house by the pool. Eggs and bacon are cooked to order, and there’s toast and jam plus fruit, just-brewed coffee and freshly squeezed juice.

Just opposite are the city’s 2 most famous riverside restaurants, The Riverside Bar and Restaurant ‘since 1983’ and its slightly slicker neighbour The Good View. Spend at least one evening here: turnover is quick, so a table with river view will become available. Draft beer and retro European favourites are one draw - the filet mignon comes with ribbed carrots - the eclectic mix of humanity another. Ageing bards murder one standard after another on the little stage. For afternoon snacks, check out the coffee shop near the riverside for its wonderful fruit smoothies and homemade chocolates and truffles; or visit Vieng Joom On the musk-pink tea house.

Save to favouritesPrintMailBaan Orapin Heritage B&BA characterful, well-kept guesthouse - actually a collection of bungalows around a restful, landscaped tropical garden - Baan Orapin takes its name from the 90-year-old teakwood family home at its centre. The owners still live here, without the benefit of air conditioning, but have striven to offer their guests comfort at a reasonable price. All the amenities are in place, floors are teak or hardwood, furniture is handcrafted, and if the surfaces arenít always finished to the highest of standards, this is compensated doubly by the attentive service and care which manager Khun Opas takes to make you feel welcome. You can ask him anything, and he will provide the answer, map at the ready. The location is another draw, a historic street along the sleepy Ping River that has been carefully restored not by edict, but by the affection of the residents. Lovely arts and craft shops abound, and you're within easy striking distance of the Night Bazaar, Wat Ket temple, riverside bars and cruises. The city centre is a short tuk-tuk ride away; the old building at the top of the road is probably the cityís most interesting student-y art showcase. And the hotel's peaceful garden will be welcome respite after a hill-tribe trek.
