This past week i’ve been out 2 times drinking beer at the local night spots of chiang mai, touring the nightlife and showing some outsiders of the Chiang Mai I know so well. I’m sad so say though, it’s nothing like Bangkok but it’s none the less all we have this far north.
Everyone has their idea of a good night out some like the nightclubs dancing till 5am to trance and techno, some like the beer bars of Chiang Mai with lots of ladies looking for a way home..some like a beer at their local pub with a few mates and people watching some even like the thai clubs playing the latest pop music like that of Warm Up and Monkey club and if you have enough money you’ll love the karaoke places of chiang mai with the most beautiful young thai ladies you’ll find in the country.
I personally havn’t been out for a long time so really me taking a few aussies out to the bars is funny because i’m not really that experienced but i guess you could say i have been around a while you know. So me I would have been all over chiang mai and pretty much know where every shop temple market nightclub karaoke join massage palour place you could think of, i have driven past a million times, so me and my two Australian friends decided to try a few unknown places out.
First stop was a glass windowed building down from the gecko restaurant. unassuming place but had about 10-15 girls in there. Had two beers and just looked around at the talent. You know when you go to these places as a foreigner I think the girls are intimidated for whatever reason and in Chiang Mai your going to have to put more work into it then you think.
Our second stop was my pick, it had no name either but i can tell you it’s across the road from the fire station in chang puak. It’s a small little thai bar with a few ladies in there. I was offered prices of 500 per half hour. We were the only white dudes in there and it catered to thai’s but anyway it was very easy and most of the girls weren’t Thai but Burmese and Chinese.
After seeing the low side of town what you can get for the best bang for you buck, of course you had to see what the biggest bang for your buck was so it was off to see the local soapy bath house where you can get massaged and service all night long. Prices where 1300-1600 only 10 girls there though and only a few lookers but sandwiches where available!
Next stop was a look at the karaoke houses of chiang mai land. a strip of shop houses near the local chiang mai public swimming pool. During the day it’s unassuming but at night there are a few fairy light houses down the strip. A big curtain hotel at the end too called the Amada which you should check out it’s only 180 baht per hour for a room. So we were just looking around but when we came left out onto the road you’ll pass a karaoke place called Violin. Violin Karaoke would have to have the best looking girls in chiang mai working there. The girls I saw some studied at Chiang Mai university and were just fine, must be about 20 girls only 18-22 nothing older. Great to look but if you go inside you’ll come out lighter maybe 3-4000 baht. really crazy stuff. I would recommend do it if you had 3-4 mates and all put in 3000 baht you would have a great 4 hours of fun but no release….
Final stop was the thai boxing ring on loi kroh road. There are a few bars there, it was the perfect end to the night hop because it was about midnight and all the girls were out, a bit of good talent there too, i met a nice girl got a number but something for another day.
Here’s a map of our route if your looking for some out of the way places then try it out and let me know how you go.
