Our top pick for budget accommodation and all around best value is Chan and Cees' Bungalows...

Chan and Cees' Bungalows in Chiang Dao

As you drive into town from Chiang Mai, turn left just before the PT Gasoline station.  You will see there sign on the left about 200 meters up the road. 

They charge a modest 300 Baht for a fan room and 400 Baht per night, for air conditoned bungalows.  All rooms come with hot showers, TV and 50 Mbps high speed internet.  The rooms are clean and fair size...

Nature Home Guesthouse:  A very nice and friendly older couple runs this place.  Three nice freestanding, big cabins with hot showers and private bathroom for 450 baht double plus 100 Baht for extra person or one big cabin with three double beds for 600 Baht per night.  It also has private bathroom with hot shower.  Nice homey athmosphere.  Owners don't speak English, but will call their daughter on the phone to translate.  Phone (English language speaking):  089-955-9074, Thai language:  087-173-8406 or 053-455-771.  Adress:  233 Moo 12 Chiang Dao District, Chiang Mai Province

 Mon Kiangdao Resort (also has budget rooms like a room that fits five people for $500 Baht total): 01-784-7795

Chiang Dao Nest 1 and 2, near the mountain temple.  Bamboo cabins with bathroom and hot showers start at 695 Baht per night (quiet athmosphere)

Malee has nice cabins next door to the Nest, starting at 250 Baht per night (shared bathroom outside) and up with Private Bathroom

Then you have Yangtone Farmstay, which is often full, but has nice bamboo bungalows from about 500 - 700 Baht per night depending on the season and a nice environment with a creek and nice vegetation

All the above people I highly recommend.

Mon and I have nothing to gain by recommending them. We don't take money or kickbacks.

So that's the scoop on Chiang Dao for this season. Hope it helps some of you.
