At last count there were approx 450 Bars in Chiangmai- & loads of restaurants too many to count as they continue to grow. However these ones are old as at 2002 and have somewhat been replaced as in 2014 but the Chiangmai Golfers Club is still running and you can view more if you wish to join a great bunch of expats who live and have retired in Chiangmai or just arrive on holiday. They have been around for many years, know the dos and don'ts so if you want honest advice ask these guys or us of course [ Golfers Club Chiangmai & Links ]


AUSSIE CAFE was in Tywang Rd opposite the Prince Hotel. It Opened 7 days a week back in 2002 but has now gone and run by another Aussie in the old moat area. Visa Runs to Mae Sai were every Sunday and Wednesday in the Golf Club minibus & Ric Cameron from Aus was the delegated driver. The visa runs attracted expats and those who wanted to play golf. Open to everyone who wanted to go to Mae Sai and return in the same day. This was started by Aussies Rick, Mark Ellenden and Tama Ruru from NZ who advertised the Golf Club on this website and the Chiangmai Trader News. Cost was 650 baht and you booked via Ric. Mark & Tay were excellent at PR and we had good meals and interesting folk and lots of expats. The Aussie Cafe run by Ray Symonds is now behind the Top North in the moat area but not associated with the Chiangmai Golfers Club any more. The 10 year anniversary was held in 2014 April


DARETS HOUSE: (Thai) still the favourite restaurant for backpackers and the cheapest foreign/Thai food in town. Right on the moat opposite the old Montri Hotel this meeting spot also has reasonable rooms for rent. Extremely friendly and honest Mr See who runs Darets has been around for many years with his wife now and they also have a Travel Centre . Very safe for foreigners & they offer great advice. Mr See is also a lawyer?? and knows Chiangmai like no body else so feel free to ask him questions.


GIBUS FRENCH RESTAURANT: Located on Khaemphaengdin Road behind the night bazaar and up from the Mae Ping Hotel GIBUS had an excellent night buffet all you can eat for 199 baht but this has now changed as at 2014. This French restaurant run by Alain Besson & his wife is one of our favourites and well worth the visit. Alain is another long time expat that will assist any foreigners. The wines are the finest from all over the world and is one of the oldest foreign owned restaurants still around. Their buffet has homemade traditional french dressings and flavourings fit for the best and the decour outstanding and host very friendly. A nice menu to go with it but a must for travellers to visit and eat

Best Girl Spots: 

Sayuri Complex over the Ping River left by Good View & Riverside Restaurant -- then you need to take a right turn has girls for short time massage, spa pool & whatever else at 1500 baht up but they will charge 2000-3000 baht if you are a tourist so best ask an expat at Mad Dogs. The best place in town this complex also has, cabaret, food, massage, karaoke and other interesting events & is an excellent stop over while in Chiangmai. Ask any.Tuk Tuk to take you there although best to avoid them as they will try to jack the price up at the complex. Try to speal Thai as it always helps?.
