Magical Chai Lai

Those of us in the Chai Lai team share a dream: to create a place that gives back to the community, provides a safe home and training for at-risk women here in Chiang Mai, and helps elephants. But we are not experts in hospitality, business or marketing - we are regular people muddling through, with the kind help of volunteers who lend a hand when they can.

Thankfully, Chai Lai is so full of magic, our marketing takes care of itself. Our wonderful guests take such fantastic photos and videos, our Instagram is at least 90% reposts. Our guests do the talking for us.

We wanted to share a beautiful video that one of our guests sent us. Thank you so much to the lovely Louise Chuah and her talented husband for this! We love it and we are so happy that you had a great time here.
