Nimman and its many alleys from the heart of Chiang Mai’s hippest neighbourhood. Located on the west side of the city, at the foot of Doi Suthep, between the university and Huay Kaew Road, Nimmanheamin Road hides many jewels.
The district gives a new angle to Chiang Mai, far from traditional Thai sensibilities found in other areas of the “Rose Nord”. Nimman has grown over galleries, boutiques, trendy cafes and bars, workspaces and upscale restaurants. The tropical climate, the cost of living cheap and culture have attracted many Digital Nomads to settle there since their arrival in Chiang Mai in 2010. I propose you to discover this district which combines at the same time chic, modernism and romance.
