Living in Chiang Mai, Thailand

In 2016 we decided to move to Chiang Mai in Thailand. We love this northern Thai city nestled amongst misty mountains and have often dreamed of living here. Chiang Mai is a digital nomad hub and the perfect place for us to work on our goals of making a sustainable online income so we can continue travelling the world and create our perfect lifestyle.

Our Story: Living in Chiang Mai

Here’s a collection of all our tales about Living in Chiang Mai. Read about how we found an apartment, how much it costs to live in Chiang Mai and how to get a visa to live in Thailand. We blog about everything from where the best markets, festivals, temples and restaurants are in Chiang Mai to what daily life is like here in Thailand. You can also join us on our trips from Chiang Mai to explore more of northern Thailand.

We’re happy to have made this city our Asian home, are you hoping to do the same? Leave us a comment if you have any questions about living in Chiang Mai. You can also subscribe to our YouTube Channel to get weekly vlogs about our little life in Chiang Mai.
