I'm a thirty-something Irish guy visiting Chiang Mai in the second week of April, first time to Chiang Mai, first time to Thailand in fact.
I am planning on going on a 2/3 day trek during my time in Chiang Mai, but looking for accommodation for a night or two to get me settled.
Because I'm on my own, I am thinking a good hostel where I can possibly meet up with others. Budget is not an issue (within reason), prefer to pay a little more for better quality. I know that probably means a hotel, but torn between having somewhere nice to stay (i.e. a good hotel) OR going for a hostel and maybe meeting more people???
Any advice or recommendations are welcome!
Thanks!!!Edited: 14 March 2013, 13:08
