Book Your Hotel in Nimmanhemin Today
Northwest of the city centre, the area around Nimmanhaemin Rd is a popular hangout for younger Thais, perhaps due to its proximity to Chiang Mai University (“maw chaw”). The pubs tend to straddle a fine line between bar, restaurant and nightclub, and feature loud music interspersed with live bands fronted by musicians who are most likely hitting the books in the daytime. Tourists looking for something racier are better off staying in the east side of the city. Little English is spoken in this part of the city. Little doesn’t mean none, however, and the staff of many bars, being students, still can understand what do you want, or even sometimes can speak English reasonably well.
