I live here: My second apartment and awesome life in Chiang Mai

For the entire month of February I lived in this luxurious, modern, brad-spanking new condominium in the Nimman area of Chiang Mai. It was a splurge for my budget, and for Chiang Mai. We could have easily found a place at half the price, but it would have been an awesome.  For the last month of travel, we wanted a conformable space where we could spend all day, and that is exactly what we got.
When the cafes were busy, we worked from home.  From the living room, from the balcony, from the roof top, or from the poolside.
We had our own washing machine and hung the laundry to dry on the balcony.
We didn’t cook in the kitchen, but we ate our street food  and takeout there. We marathon watched movies and spent long hours talking on the couch.
We filled up water jugs on the street for 3 baht.
 We worked out every single day in the condo gym.
It was the best month of all.
