Where To Stay In Mon Jam, Mae Rim

We stayed at Baan SkyPruek (บ้านสกายพฤกษ์) in Mon Jam, Mae Rim, Chiang Mai. The glamping and homestay in lush green forest facing Mountain View and step flower farming beneath

The place is SUPER chill, we took a little escape trip with our friends to the cloudy and foggy sky in the middle of the mountain, carried our drinks, settle down, ordered BBQ or Mukata that became a thing in Thailand when you took a trip to the mountain

Every homestay had this menu as ritual. Do not miss it!
