I wanted to explore Doi Ang Khang on my way up from Chiang Mai to the Golden Triangle. The mountain drive is spectacular, but I should have continued on to Chiang Rai. Fang has little to offer the visitor, and the Punmanee is uninspiring. A concrete block of a hotel, with paper thin walls that allow you to hear conversations 2 or three rooms away. The rooms are basic, but with a reasonable en-suite. The staff are friendly but speak virtually no english, which caused some misunderstandings over breakfast. The hotel was very reasonably priced at Baht 500 with a (small) cooked breakfast, although talking to other guests one group had paid 600 per night, and another 800, so negotiate, or better still drive on to Chang Rai.

My girlfriend and I headed out of the city and up to Fang for a quiet weekend alone. We reserved Phumanee online because of all the great reviews. The first room we got when we showed up (312) was disappointing, but we were able to switch to 311 and it was better. The place is in need of a new coat of paint and some minor maintenance, but overall it was worth the 600 baht. There was loads of information about the surrounding area and attractions, as well as a mini-museum of Lahu cultural artifacts. Oh yeah, free breakfast and wifi as well!

The experience was better than the hotel by a long shot. We were able to participate in Lahu new year with the hosts, and they took us around to several houses in a nearby village. We were received very well by the villagers, and they were very curious about us as well. It was very special! My 5 star review is for the entire experience, I would say 4 star for the hotel itself, for a score of 4 1/2 star. Everyone was so nice though, I couldn't bring myself to round down to 4 stars!

We had our lunch in Phumanee Home Hotel on our way to stay in the Lahu village of Pumuen in the mountains near Fang. The trip was organised by the owners.
We had an unforgettable experience staying with the authentic hill tribe villagers on top of the mountain.
We picked and made our own tea, we danced with the locals and had great food and a nice evening near the fire.
Thank you Kun Doom for sharing this unique experience with us.

Room Tip: As we did not stay in the hotel we can only recommend the food and the great trip.

This is a great base of operations for discovering Fang and the surrounding sites: temples, hill tribe outings, Hot Springs, the more expensive Tahton, etc. The rooms are sparkling clean, the staff is gracious, helpful and attentive to every need. I found the rates really affordable over my two night stay.
This hotel is run by representatives of the Lahu Tribe, one of the 6 major tribes in Northern Thailand. So you are supporting a good cause by staying here.
So it's affordable, clean, they serve a great cup of coffee and the wi-fi is good. 5 stars at 2 star prices.

This is a great place to stay off the regular tourist routes in the hill tribe region of Northern Thailand. The hotel was opened in 2007 by local Lahu hill tribe people. Located in a quiet area of Fang City it is a peaceful, relaxing place to stay.
Rooms are very well serviced and maintained. There is a restaurant on the ground floor serving local food. Displays around the hotel explain the culture and history of the local Lahu people.
The city center, shops and restaurants are within walking distance.
Trips are arranged from the hotel to visit Fang Hot Springs, local temples, waterfalls and Thailand's 2nd highest mountain, Doi Fah Hom Pok (2,285 m). You can also arrange to stay in the Lahu village of Pumuen at about 1,300 meters on the mountain to experience authentic hill tribe village life. Tea and coffee are grown here. It's a 14 kilometer hike from the village to mountaintop.

Dome knows how to deliver. That's his talent and he does it all with such an affable nature (and donned in a funky- traditional mixed with modern - waistcoat and cowboy hat) that you can't help just relaxing into the journey and letting the good times roll on.
Being a local Lahu fella himself, he has great insight on the local hill-tribe customs and culture, but he is also switched on to what tourists and travelers want.
We spent two days with him and looking back now I can't believe how many things we packed into the day, and with it all feeling breezy and stress-free.
One moment we were had baskets slung on our backs and were picking tea, the next chasing village kids around, a little while later frolicking under a ferocious waterfall and at night we were treated to a traditional Lahu feast, cooked mostly in bamboo on an open fire.
Wait up.... then there was the old-school massage, which caused all of us to screech in pain, just after us boys had claimed we had extremely high pain-thresholds.... then there was the traditional Lahu dancing, which none of us - not even Shane, the tango expert- could master... and then we stayed the night with a local family, where the morning was spent sitting on the bamboo-slat floor eating a beautiful breakfast of rice, omelet and stewed spiced veggies and pork, while we watched golden steams of dawn-light streak through the wooden walls and smoke billow from the cooking fire in the center of the hut.
And all these cool events happened within one of the most beautiful setting I'd ever come across; scatterings of traditional hats staggered down the mountainside and far off in the horizon a great green mountain range loomed, squiggling the azure sky like a huge reptile had surfaced from the ground eons ago and made that spot his life-long resting place.
And not to mention the people in the village were awesomely friendly and hospitable, and I dug to no end their traditional attire - the colourfuly woven skirts and babble-jangling hats.
Anyways, it was The Real Experience and I can't wait to get the ball rolling again so i can go back to the good times. Cheers Dome, you're a legend.

This is a great little Hotel that is very reasonably priced - excellent value for money. The staff and owners are really friendly and helpful. The hotel has simple clean rooms with an on-suite, a good restaurant, and on each floor a sitting area. In the sitting area on the first floor is a little history about the family that runs the Hotel and the hill village they are from. The hotel can arrange many activities including a stay at the village the owners are from (Doi Pumuen Homestay). Fang is an interesting city with plenty to do, but you could also just relax.

Highly recommended.

PS The map on TA is showing, at the time of writing, the incorrect location for the hotel. If you search on Google maps for Phumanee Home Hotel, 122/1 Moo 4 Tambon Vieng, Chiang Mai 50110, Thailand you will get the correct location. I have informed TA of the error, so hopefully this will be fixed soon.
