Welcome to Chiang Mai

Thailand is known as the Land of Smiles due to its friendly and welcoming people, and Chiang Mai is one of its most beautiful cities. The inexpensive cost of living, excellent healthcare, and cultural charm make it a wonderful place to retire. Whether you choose the scenic mountains and slow pace of life, or the bustling city center with its diverse offerings, Chiang Mai offers a safe and comfortable lifestyle, with plenty of things to do and people to meet.

If you are considering retiring to Chiang Mai, we are here to help guide you. The move can be exciting - but without local assistance - it can also be stressful and confusing. Our dedicated team will handle all of your relocation needs and provide you with recommendations that take years of living in the city to learn. As Chiang Mai "locals" our experience saves you money, time, misinformation, and the inevitable frustration that can arise during the move. Let us guide you through this process to welcome you home to Thailand with confidence and peace of mind.
