Farther to the east from the night bazzar, around the Ping river side it is easy to access the eastern areas such as Bosang and Sankamphaeng. Hotels in the area are convenient to stay for long-distance travelers due to close to the railway station.
The Chedi Chiang Mai is an 84-room hotel, spa and restaurant located in the centre of Chiang Mai on the banks of the Mae Ping River. The site of the hotel is the compound of the former British Consulate in Chiang Mai, within which the main Consulate building, dating from the 1920’s, has been retained and integrated within the hotel design. The design intention of the scheme was to combine a city location with the atmosphere of a resort hotel, together with the integration of the existing colonial house, site and hotel using a contemporary interpretation of traditional Thai materials.
