CYDA GuestHouse

Based around 20-25 minutes from Chiang Mai city center, CYDA's GuestHouse is located in a village located in the Sarapee District. Although away from the tourists and the hustle and bustle of Chiang Mai, the GuestHouse is still within close proximity to all the major tourists attractions that surround the Chiang Mai area.


Experience the life of a Thai villager, which also provides a chance to interact with the extremely friendly locals. The locals and the young people who live at CYDA often come and welcome new guests, which also provides an opportunity for them to practice their English.


Explore the surprisingly unique blend of modern and traditional attractions surrounding the village, either on bike or scooter. This opportunity provides a fascinating insight into the lives of the local community. From trendy cafes to beautiful temples, everyday we discover something new that surrounds the CYDA GuestHouse.


The main GuestHouse is built as a typical traditional stilt Thai home; it has two rooms available for our guests which can hold a maximum of four people in each room. The floors and ceiling are fitted with hand made woven teak and the rooms are decorated with handicrafts made by the local villagers. There is also a balcony with a garden view where our guests can relax with a cold drink.


Downstairs we have a communal area where our guests eat and can purchase drinks. We also have table tennis, darts and other games available for our guests to past the time when they are not doing other activities. Feel free to chill out in this area along with our two dogs and cat, who have also made CYDA their home.


If you want a holiday that involves late night parties and bars there are more suitable places in the Chiang Mai city center. However, if you are looking to experience a mixture of a traditional lifestyle with adventure in a rural setting, and at the same time help a local community, then CYDA is the perfect choice. Come join us at the CYDA GuestHouse and experience this unique and authentic opportunity.
