We run fascinating guided food walks in Chiang Mai's historic centre, taking in a vibrant morning market and the locals' favourite spots for breakfast, lunch and dessert. We can also offer personalized Thai cooking classes in the café kitchen - stay for seven nights or more and we'll throw in a cooking class for free!

We can provide you with detailed, unbiased information about the local area, including reliable advice on what to do and where to go, as well as the best places to eat and drink. Our staff speak excellent English as well as Thai, Mandarin and French. We can also book any activities, tours or trips in the Chiang Mai area for you, often at a discount on the advertised price – feel free to get in touch with us in advance, if you'd like any advice before you arrive.

We are inside the walls of historic Chiang Mai city, within easy walking distance of all the main attractions, including Wat Phra Singh , Wat Chedi Luang and the Walking Street Sunday Market (all less than 5 minutes), the Arts & Cultural Museum and Thapae Gate (10 minutes), the Night Bazaar and Kad Suan Kaew shopping mall (15 minutes), as well as a wide range of local shops, bars and restaurants.
