The Story Behind Chiang Mai’s Puripunn Baby Grand Boutique Hotel

April 27, 2015 by Khiri Travel | Filed Under: , ,

Puripunn Baby Grand Boutique Hotel is a small, family-run hotel in a quiet area of Chiang Mai. Created in the style of old world charm and nobility reminiscent of the King Rama V era, the Puripunn is infused with nam jai, Thai for “warm hospitality from the heart.”

The hotel owners, Att and Sineenard (Koy) Viravaidhya, created the hotel to reflect Chiang Mai’s heritage and great culture, mixed it with their own style, and made it become a home for their family, guests and the people who work there. They believe that in making their staff and guests happy as a first priority, good business will follow. Att and Koy created Puripunn with love and passion because it’s not only a place for them to do business, but it’s also their home. Many of the people work with the hotel since its inception nine years ago.
The hotel is named after the local temple, Wat Gate, and located on the banks of the Ping River. Before transportation shifted from river to road nearly a century ago, this community was a culturally diverse trading hub of Chiang Mai. The hotel breathes an atmosphere of the ancient Lanna Kingdom and shows the styles of prosperous Chinese merchants and European colonials.

New Tented Camps in Laos with Shangri Lao

Dr Paul Neis, a well known French Indochina explorer who later became the French consul in Canton, led an expedition to the Laotian highlands in 1883. Dr Neis left Luang Prabang on 11 October in that year in two light boats going up the Nam Khan river.

He travelled up the Huay Sae (“Nam Sae”) and set up camp along the Huay Sae, a mountain stream ending in the Nam Khan River. Visitors today can now travel back in time and relive those exciting days when most of Indochina was unexplored territory for outsiders. The new journey has been made possible by German entrepreneur Markus Peschke. Markus is a long time Lao resident and the founder of Tiger Trail, the Indochina Spirit restaurant and, more recently, the Elephant Village. His new project is called Shangri Lao (www.shangri-lao.com). Shangri Lao will consist of two tented camps, one nearby the current Elephant Village, where Dr. Neis and his entourage set up camp in 1883 along the Tad Sae River and one at the Tad Huay Khot, close to Xieng Ngeung village.
