Hello! My name is Lauren Ellis. I am a web designer from the States who moved to Chiang Rai to work with a local non-profit.
I love to work at coffee shops, but when started running out of places to go, I was getting frustrated. Then when I needed to find a service, like an orthopedic doctor, a motorcycle jacket store, or a pet shop, it would usually take me a few days of running around, asking everyone I knew, or searching on five year old forums.
So I took the matter into my own hands.
and thus, this site was born.
Every entry was lovingly added by me with the sole hope to make Chiang Rai easier and more accessible to foreigners. Every place listed was either visited by me, recommended by others, or got high reviews on Facebook. The goal is to create a list of the best, most friendly, most delicious, most exciting places.
Hopefully this site is helpful to you. If you have any comments, recommendations, or suggestions, please contact me!
