So we've decided to stay in Chiang Mai for a month because it is such a wonderful place to visit and explore. After a day of shopping around, we have found the Smith Residence (which also makes it to the wall of Brand New Fakes due to its remarkable likeness to Paul Smith branding!).

Rather than a hotel or guesthouse, this is a serviced apartment which houses several expats who live and work out here. With a nice sized room, balcony, fridge, bath(!), and microwave - and with a beautiful pool and gym on the roof of this high building offering stunning views, especially at sunset - "the Smith", as it is affectionately known locally, is our home away from home for the foreseeable future. 

Now, off to the pool!
