Hi and welcome to the Chiang Rai forum

Old style guest houses without pool and close to the nightmarkets are Baan Norn Plearn & Baan Rub Aroon, the former is a converted kindergarten school, very quaint with charming owners and the latter is an old colonial style house with beautiful garden.

There are newer ones with pool, but they are not old style, Ben's Guesthouse is old style with pool and close to the Sunday night market, but maybe 1500 metres from the main night market.

If you can get a good rate off the internet (usually googleing their own website) you might get a good deal at Le Meridien, not old by any means, and about 2km from town but beautiful with wonderful pool.

Hi Ml

Weather is one of my hobby horses, I have no less than 3 inside/outside digital thermometer/weather stations in my house, at 5pm just now it's raining and the temperature has dropped outside to 28C.

July weather is very variable, if you look at this link you can see what to expect tripadvisor.com/ShowTopic-g297920-i9940-k676…

Night times are pleasant and my air-conditioning is barely working overnight, daytimes could be anything between 26C and 35C. It definitely won't be cold but it is likely to be very wet (everywhere in Thailand in fact)

Thank you so much Bruce this is really very useful. Could you possibly help re contact to Baan Norn Plearn, I cant seem to find a website for them?

Our dates are 12-14 July, family of four.

Much appreciated and for the tips on weather as well! It wil certainly be warmer than where we are coming from!
