Writers and artists retreat Thailand
I am a retired Australian and it has taken me years to find this place, so I thought I would share the information. If you are looking for a safe and secluded tropical paradise in which to write that book or paint that painting, this is it. Chiang Rai is in northern Thailand. This is a very small resort (4 cottages set in the rainforest) which is in the process of being converted into long-term homestay. It would suit independent, physically fit people. The cost of one of the cabins is about 5,000 BHT a month ($170 AUD) which includes wireless internet and electricity. For long-term homestay, basic furnishings are provided (bed, televsion, table, curtains) but you provide the rest, which is a great opportunity to buy local handicrafts. For guests wishing to stay less than a month, facilities are also available. You can fly here from Australia via Bangkok. Any questions, just ask. I am very happy here. You can look it up on the web (site is in Thai: www.janpha.com. TripAdvisor Chiang Rai Forum is also helpful.
