Chiang Mai is the best place to stay when looking for a Digital Nomad scene in Thailand. In this long term travel guide, I will cover our condo rental, our local neighbourhood, the must see attractions, cafes and the best hidden gems. But most importantly, the realities and costs of living here.
If you are moving to Chiang Mai, this is definitely a MUST SEE!
EVERYTHING FEATURED IN THIS GUIDE:
0:58 – A Tour of our Condo
We rented an apartment at the DCONDO CAMPUS RESORT in the Suthep area. A beautiful complex with swimming pool, gym and mountain views from our window. We booked through Airbnb for the month (linked above)
2:25 – Breaking Down our Apartment Costs
Breaking down our Airbnb rental costs, including bills and utilities.

Suthep is known for Chiang Mai University and Doi Suthep temple, but it’s not as well known for its liability. So this is a look at the local cafes and things to do. Including my favourite food market in the whole of Chiang Mai on Suthep Road, and also the Chiang Mai Complex: a cool student fashion market.

A hidden gem of a trail on Suthep Mountain that leads up to Pha Lad Temple.
