Named after the massive 50-year-old yaang tree that provides shade for the reception area, the Yaang Come is an unusually quiet hotel for bustling Chiang Mai. The resort aims to re-create the feel of a traditional Thai Lue village (the Thai Lue migrated from Yunnan Province to northern Thailand a couple of centuries ago), so the lavishly decorated open-air reception leads to an inner courtyard (dominated by a swimming pool). Flanking the pool area are the guest rooms, housed in brick buildings with Lanna-style roofs, red-tile floors, balconies, glossy tile bathrooms, four poster beds, and unique wall murals painted by local artisans. The hotel is tucked away from the bustle of the Night Bazaar, yet still within striking distance.
