WHO WE ARE
Baan Mai Kradan 'Lifestyle' Hostel is originally an old Thai house built in 1964 or over 50 years old where we completely renovate the old wooden house and resurrect it in October 2017. Today the lifestyle hostel provides its residents with premium co-living accommodation - right at the heart of the city. Baan Mai Kradan Lifestyle Hostel is located in the downtown area of Chiang Rai and is just a few minutes’ walk from Saturday Walking Street.
Famous Temples, so called WAT in Thai, such as Wat Phra Kaew, Wat Ming Muang, Wat Phra Sing, Wat Klang Wiang and city attractions like Free City Tour (main station nearby The King Mengrai the Great Memorial), City Clock Tower (designed by the famous artist Ajarn Chalermchai Kositpipat), Fresh Market are all within walking distance.
DESIGN & IDENTITY
The original Baan Mai Kradan, or 'Board house' in English, itself was built in the 1960s and is a former typical Thai house that owned by local.
When renovating the house we tried to salvage and re-use as much as we could from the old house. Our redesign principles are simply kept the original structure of the old house that made from old wood, as you see in the middle of the new house.
The redesign not only retains the sense of the original Thai House Design & Identity such as Sao Lang Mah or Pillar of the dogs, Fa Lai or 2-Layers Sliding Wooden Windows, but also add Eco & Energy Saving Concept to the renovated house.
