We stayed here for 2 nights after a jungle/elephant trekking overnight trip. It was such a relief to arrive at Tonnam and have Yul as a resource to ask questions and arrange things for us. Someone was available to pick us up and bring us to the resort and take us into town whenever we wanted for a reasonable price.... More

Tonnam Homestay is the way to go if you plan on visiting Chiang Mai. In Thailand, you definitely want the scoop from a local--Yul (our host) will give you insight on what Chiang Mai is all about! From activities such as elephant riding, kayaking, transportation, markets, etc. Tonnam Homestay is set up like a hotel--laundry service, housekeepers, breakfast/lunch/dinner, pool, etc.... More
