Howie’s HomeStay, Chiang Mai, Thailand

Howie is a Rhode-Islander that landed in Chiang Mai, fell in love and never went back. He set about building his dream home with Thailand’s most famous architect, creating something so magical he decided to share it with visiting guests. There are no words to describe what Howie’s Homestay is like. Most people would be put off by the name, but, for those who aren’t, the moment you walk into the compound you feel you’ve landed in a slice of heaven. His sprawling garden, seven Lanna style pavilions, fountains, pool, and not to mention his personality, all make for a fabulous and memorable experience.
