CHIANGMAI THE JEWEL OF THE NORTH

HINTS on living in Chiangmai or Thailand
If you want to come to Thailand to live, Chiangmai has a very cool season, no floods or disasters yet has all the amenities without being congested with lovely International airport. You can rent properties for around 5,000- 35,000 plus depending on what your taste is & a small condo unit will cost roughly 2,500 unfurnished to -20,000 baht with separate bathroom and furnished. You need to pay normally 2-3 months deposit plus a phone deposit which can be from 5000 baht to 10,000 baht for a house. We make sure you have a proper lease & everything will be looked after for you. If you have questions please ask us. 


   

 

WHAT TO BRING WITH YOU: 
Well, you can buy most things in ChiangMai as they have 4 large superstores: Carrefoure (French); Macro (Thai), Lotus (British) & Auchan ( Dutch) which all have a large variety of goods & food -bulk products. 3 are on the superhighway & Lotus is on the Hangdong Rd. There's also supermarkets like Rimping off Chang Puak Rd (North), Tops in the Airport Plaza (South) & Central department store (West) (Kaad Suan Kaew)  & what you can't find here you buy at the many markets all over town. Chiangmai has loads of fresh markets selling everything from hot foods to vegetables, fruit, meat, fish etc and is Thailand's 2nd biggest city. Water can be purchased delivered to your home at 15 baht per 20 litre plastic bottle. Just bring your favorite foods but forget the clothing as that is cheap here. Furniture is cheap & most places if not all will deliver to your home. You can buy 2nd hand items as well and we have an excellent monthly news on buy/sell/exchange. Check out the monthly [ Chiangmai Trader News ]

GETTING AROUND: 
ChiangMai is so different and easy to get around unlike cities such as Bangkok. Being the second largest city it is not conjested and the old city has charisma that no other city has. Chiangmai is in the Lanna Kingdom and you will never get lost--Doi Suthep moutain is on your west and once you know that the rest is easy. Motorcycles cost around 100-150 baht to hire per day on a monthly basis about 100 baht & vehicles 900 baht a day; songteaws cost 8 baht per route but ask first the price. Tuktuks cost a min 20 baht but again you must ask the price before you accept the lift. Don't worry there's loads of them around day and night so if one is too dear move on to the next.

BUYING A CAR OR MOTORCYCLE: 
Theres plenty to choose from in Chiangmai. Should you be interested in purchasing a motor vehicle then ask us about the paper work, procuring the right car, changing the papers into your name, insurance cover etc. You must possess an International drivers license and hold a non immigrant visa to purchase in your own name. Tell us the make and model of the vehicle you want & price range & we can inspect and change all the paper work.  Some owners use Thai people to insert in their name but we do not recommend this as you can lose your car & more than not you will. We also do not recommend leaving the vehicle in the other person's name or anything else for that matter!. You must however have a non immigrant visas to have vehicles in your name[ Visas ]

THAI DRIVER'S LICENSE 
A must if you want to stay in Thailand for a long time. Many people just cannot be bothered but we recommend it as your International license is only valid for 6 months here. Please bring your original driver's license with you. This will save you a test. If you want both the car & motorcycle license best do this at the same time as you need a letter from your Embassy for one license but can photocopy if you do both at the same time. If you haven't got a motorcycle license in your own country no problem. You sit a straight forward written test then ride a bike in and out of  5 poles. The registration dept has them for hire at 10 baht a shot but test the brakes first. If you miss the test no problem go back the next day & resit the same test.You must get 15 out of 20 questions correct for a pass. Cost per year for the license 120 baht. 

PAYING YOUR BILLS 
 Where to pay them and assist you with all your forms like: UBC TV, Electricity ( usually can pay at your home); water (again from your home); drinking water ordering, Telephone, Fax, Internet & any other bills you feel that you might incur.

SCHOOLS 
With 3 Universites and 6 International schools to suit your pocket your children have an excellent choice where to be educated. We can offer you free assistance as we work closely with Teachers from Chiangmai University and the Chiangmai International School.Check the new [ Prem Centre International College ]

VEHICLE BREAKDOWNS: 
Again we can direct you with all your repair problems. Unless you use a reputable mechanical shop do not trust an upcountry repair shop as they sometimes swap your parts for old ones--better to bring it home. A touch up or panel job we can direct you to excellent workshops.

ONGOING HELP 
The above services are available to all our clients. If you need something fixed up we will have the repairmen call upon you. We charge a small fee for our services but we offer our services to you all year round and we carry out every task diligently & professionally. We now have a new Thai business who can do all your repairs from plumbing to lawn care to, electrical maintenance. Yes ask us about CONNECT -one call does all!!
