Next, I’ll be introducing you to Wildbeat Chiang Mai. As most Thai locals would say, no visit to Chiang Mai is truly complete without a visit to Doi Inthanon National Park – which is a few hours drive up from Chiang Mai’s city centre.

As this campsite is located right in the heart of Doi Inthanon, you could make this your rest stop for the day once you’re done with a day’s worth of exploration.

The campsite comes with a giant hut that makes for great photos that’ll be a wonderful addition to your IG feed. If you’re committed to snapping the perfect shot, you could even bring your drones out for a ride and capture beautiful pictures that take you to a whole new world.

For ฿2,500 (~USD73.07), you could spend a night in one of their container rooms – also known as mountain view villas. If you’d prefer something more rustic, you could also opt for a stay in one of their XL glamping tents on site.

With air-conditioning, a flat-screen TV and a refrigerator, their container villas come with everything you could possibly need for a comfy stay.

For ฿3,500 (~USD102.29), you can spend a night in one of these clear bubble domes. The whimsical fairytale fan within me looks at this from afar and thinks it looks like a home for a water fairy straight out of Neverland. Tinkerbell vibes strong, hah.

Since every bubble dome comes with its own private area, you could even opt to have a warm steamboat or mookata session right at your own balcony. Since you’d probably head down to the camp during the cooler months towards the end of the year, a steaming hotpot session could be just what you need to warm you up for the day.

6. Reverie Camp — Bubble dome, caravan & cabin-style glamping

Image credit: @reverie_camp via Instagram

Up next on the list, we have one of my personal favourites: Reverie Camp. For this campsite, it re-imagines bubble domes to have a more geometric aesthetic, adding a whole lotta dimension to your pictures taken inside. However, it also comes with a whole experience of caravan living.

The bubble domes are decked out in cosy blankets and even come with a Marshall speaker for a surround-sound experience when you decide to put on your favourite music for the night.

Image credit: @reverie_camp via Instagram

From ฿6,900 (~USD201.66)/nightyou get to spend a night in one of the fleet vans on a weeknight. This is honestly a dream come true for me since I was watching Hannah Montana on Disney and wondering how it’d feel like to live in a caravan while going on a world tour. With a bubble dome, private area and caravan living – it’s definitely the best of both worlds. 

Image credit: @reverie_camp via Instagram

Each caravan comes with everything you’d possibly need within an arm’s reach. From the vans being lined with gorgeous fairy lights, to having a clear roof for some late-night star-gazing, who knew life in a caravan would look this good?

Image credit: @reverie_camp via Instagram

During the day, you could also head out for some afternoon tea on your own private balcony. Plus points for the fact that you’ll get to do that while taking in the fresh morning air and views of Chiang Mai.

Since the north is well-known for its forests too, it should come as no surprise that this next pick on our list is a forest-style staycation called My Cottage Chiang Mai. While the name implies a humble cottage in the woods, this staycation serves guests a grand bungalow right by a running stream.

Cleverly designed with bamboo and thatched roofs to fit its rustic theme on the outside, the interior of the bungalow gives us something completely different.

Decked out with white marble tables, carpet and furniture, the bungalow is designed with a clean and minimalist aesthetic in mind — a beautiful contrast to its warm, rustic and homely design on the outside.
