This is the apartment that my wife chose and is our home for three months of the year. It is on the 9th floor of the uniquely* located Rimping Condominium overlooking the Ping River and opposite the US Consulate. The balcony is a major bonus and great for dining and an evening sun-downer. The condominium is also close to most of the places we want to go. Across the Nankornping Bridge are the major markets and a bit further is the Night Bazaar and dozens of places to eat. The Old City is under a mile but if that is too far to walk it is an easy ride in a tuk-tuk or songthaew.
* It was constructed in a prime location and caused such controversy that all subsequent high rise buildings were subjected to greater regulation and are significantly further out.

Interaction with guests
When you book you will be sent a detailed set of notes on managing the apartment, security and access details, places to go, things to do and our recommended shopping places. When you get to the apartment you will find a great deal more detail in the form of brochures and maps that we or other guests have collected..
We shall not be there to greet you because when you are in Chiang Mai we are in Australia. However we have owned the apartment for ten years and the office and security staff are very used to looking after our guests on their arrival. If you do need to contact us we are available by phone or email .

This condo is on the 9th floor with separate decks or terraces off the master bedroom and the living/dining area. The floor to ceiling windows and sliding glass doors add to the feeling of spaciousness we experienced. The bathroom that is en suite with the master bedroom can also be accessed from the entry hallway. There is a second bedroom...

Dear Jess, Thank you for your review; I’ll certainly take your ideas into consideration but, for others who use these reviews as a guide, it is important that they do not make a booking under a similar misapprehension. The promotional material says: “This is the apartment that my wife chose and is our home for three months of the year.”...

We had good contact with the owner before booking which we found useful. We know Chaing Mai very well so we were more than happy with the area. On entering the apartment there was no wow factor more of an oh factor. Apartment was of a good size with plenty of storage space.and a fitted western kitchen also had a...

Thank you for the review and yor rating we are pleased you had a very enjoyable stay. The Rimping is not the most modern condominium because it was built in 1991 but it cannot be beaten for location. Apart from the Twin Peaks on Chang Klan Road the more recent apartments are much further from the centre. It was a...

Additional Rate and Availability Information
Thank you for your interest. If you wish to make a booking please check the availability dates and the rates and contact me via the web site with your dates. I shall respond with a quote/payment request and at the same time hold your dates for 48 hours. If, in that time, you have paid the deposit those dates are secured for you. If a deposit is not paid in 48 hours the dates will be made available again. To keep matters simple your rental includes your electricity and water charges; we don't like unpleasant surprises any more than you do.

In order to comply with the agreement we have with our condominium management the minimum stay is 4 weeks. The visa on arrival system will normally allow a stay of 30 days. It will also be necessary for you to supply the names of the travellers in your party so their occupancy can be authorised.

Wherever you stay I wish you a happy holiday, Chiang Mai is a magical place.

About the neighbourhood
Chiang Mai is a favourite traveller destination with a fascinating history going back to 1296. The old walled and moated city is full of interest and more than 100 Buddhist temples. The people, the shops and the eating places are a delight with dinner from $2.50 on the street to as much as you would like to pay in a grand hotel...... and the cost of living is low enough for a western traveller to recover their air-fare ! It is also a great place to explore Northern Thailand and to visit Vientiane and Myanmar.
Getting around
For local travel in the city we walk to the major markets and the Night Market which are the other side of the river. For longer trips we take a red taxi ( a pick-up vehicle with benches in the back and inexpensive (30 baht each) but subject to negotiation for rides beyond 4kms. Tuk tuks for local travel (a motorised two-seater) are also numerous.
For trips outside Chiang Mai we use the local buses. This means a ride to the bus station and then take a bus of your choice. Very cheap, very interesting, and very local.............. not touristy.
Car not needed
How to get there
Airport: Chaing Mai International: 8.1 km

On arrival Security Staff will escort you to your apartment and you will find that the apartment has been set up in anticipation of your arrival.
