Chiang Mai vs Pattaya

Recommended Posts

I think I might try CM next trip instead of Pattaya with a view to living long term

 

I haven't been to CM in 15 years 

 

So tell me the difference in terms of 

Easy access walking , food prices ,rent prices ,condo sale prices ,gyms , hospitals

Not really interested in bars but you can mention them too

 

Is CM good for a single older male to retire vs Pattaya?

One is a city in the north of Thailand at an elevation of 310 meters, the other is on the eastern seaboard and is at sea level. The winters are cool in the north, but temperatures remain warm on the eastern seaboard. One has a pollution problem from early March until the rains start. But you must have know this.

Go Gym

02 gyms

Old city

Good walking city. Anywhere around the Old City. 8,000 a month rooms. Modern trendy stuff near Nimman rd. Lots of small bars. Start by staying the middle of the old city then branch out.

Parasol Inn Chiang Mai Old City. Anywhere near here is a good spot to stay.

 

Another pretty good option for gym people is Pang Suan Kaew. It is an old hotel with large rooms. Got pool and great gym. Normally 700 baht.
