Head east/southeast of Chiang Mai’s Old City and you’ll hit Chang Khlan – home to Chang Klan Road, the city’s business, commercial and financial beating heartcrowned by the iconic Night Bazaar, but also the most ethnically diverse place in town with down-to-earth locals from Northern hilltribes and the Jewish community to the biggest Muslim quarter in Chiang Mai.

So if you’re chewing over settling in this particular neck of the woods, you’re in luck as we recap the main move-in-ready condos throughout Chang Klan.

And then there’s the seriously swanky Grand Lobby plus other no less stellar leisure amenities like the in-house luxury spa and the rooftop infinity pools from where you can catch absolutely phenomenal bird’s-eye views of the city below and surrounding mountain ranges!
In search of a condo fit for a VIP?
Another splurge-worthy high-rise if you wanna shot at experiencing a ‘New Destination of Living’ is The Shine Condo. Choose from a touch over 100 thoroughly sublime units with either of one or two bedrooms from 34 to 220 sq m including what many reckon to be the most exceptional in all Chiang Mai, the just half-dozen uniquely themed and no expense spared duplex Presidential Suites. On-site recreational facilities are just as brilliant with a gorgeous saltwater pool and on the second-to-last of the 15 floors, you can kick back at the greenery-filled Sky Garden while drinking in the sensational scenic vistas. Oh, and the condo’s even got its very own helipad on the top deck!After a condo with fully modernised units going for a bargainIt is not going to win any prizes in the looks department but when it comes to value for money, you’ll be hard-pressed to beat Galare Thong Tower. Plenty of the 250-odd units have been spectacularly overhauled since the condo went up in ’92 with everything from 35 to 45 sq m studios to one, two and three-bed units between 60 and 186 sq m including a fair share of penthouses spread over two floors and some loft-style triplex units. Better yet, score a unit facing west on one of the higher of Galae Thong’s 15 storeys and you’ll be treated to a jaw-dropping panorama of the Doi Suthep-Pui mountains. What the condo lacks in a pool and gym, it makes up for with its 24/7 resident-friendly front office and, super conveniently, a bistro which offers room service!
