I am about to leave Chiang Rai today, taking the bus back to Chiang Mai, but while fresh in my mind here’s my thoughts on where I stayed. I moved around a bit because I just wanted to check out other hotels and also because this is the peak season and this week more than any other week, rates are higher than normal. Le Vie En Rose I already blogged about. I moved to Diamond Park Inn, feeling a bit underwhelmed I moved to Baan Norm Plearn for $24 a night. I was happier here, no air con but not needed at night and they had complimentary bicycles which I really enjoyed. Wifi worked, no secure safe in my room but I never felt I needed it and yes, this place is a bit more rustic as you can tell from the pictures.
