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
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.
