Mad Monkey is continuing its expansion in Southeast Asia with two openings in March 2020. Chiang Mai and Pai in northern Thailand will be the 15th and 16th properties to join the Mad Monkey family. While Chiang Mai is famous for its opulent temples and rich history, Pai is known for its lush, mountainous landscapes and serene vibes. Both northern cities offer unique cultural experiences and a multitude of day excursions.
The hostel in Chiang Mai boasts 207-beds and is conveniently located near the center of Chiang Mai city, within walking distance of Thapae Gate, Sunday Walking Street, and Chiang Mai Night Bazaar. The hostel is ten minutes from the Chiang Mai airport and bus terminals, offering a speedy and convenient connection for Mad Monkey guests to other Thai cities and other Mad Monkey Hostels, including Mad Monkey Bangkok via plane, and Mad Monkey Luang Prabang via the legendary slow boat journey along the Mekong River. Facilities at Mad Monkey Chiang Mai include a large bar, restaurant, swimming pool, onsite gym, and yoga area for guests. 
Mad Monkey Pai is situated near the peaceful banks of the Pai River in Northern Thailand, just 4 hours from Chiang Mai. The bungalow dorms are equipped with balconies overlooking the garden and are surrounded by the abundant foliage and mountainous terrain of Pai. 
With the same welcoming atmosphere and social vibe, Mad Monkey Chiang Mai and Pai will host regular tours, events, and parties to discover the natural beauty of northern Thailand while immersing you in the local culture alongside other travelers from around the world.
