My $270 Thai Apartment tour (+Swimming pool and Gym) in Chiang Mai, Thailand 2017 [Subtitle]

Hello guys It’s Jin from en.universewithme.com I am cycling around the world I am in Thailand. I rent a flat. I want to have apartment tour with you guys. I will show you from out side of my building. You have to watch to the end Because I will show you nice swimming pool Amazing view from the top of the building. Here is entrance. There is parking entrance. I usually enter that side with my bicycle. There is parking lot. It is 24 hours. There is a guard always. There is camera. I just leave bicycle here. I found there is another Parking lot on the second floor I can leave my bicycle. Here is some massage shop. This is entrance of the building. There are a few shops. which I don’t need. Laundry machine is behind building there. Here are two laundry machines. 50 baht Actually it is two times more expensive than other places. Actually I am going to use other laundry machines Just near my apartment. There is an office. To enter the entrance I need the key. like this So it is very safe. Office will take your parcel. and leave some message like this. So it is very convenient. Okay Let’s go to my room. In Chiang Mai, many building is quite old. But this is very nice. and looks new. So I really like. I just arrived my floor. There is really good thing. The garbage I can throw away here. It is so comfortable. Actually I am very lazy. I am so lucky that I can throw garbage at the same floor. It is garbage bin. It is not smelly at all. very clean usually bin is quite empty. Let’s go to my room. And the light! Are you guys ready? πŸ™‚ Welcome to my room. This is my Thai apartment in Chiang Mai, Thailand. Here I have couch. And there I have a bed. I have small kitchen here. I have some microwave. And table. to eat And I have another shelves. Here I have fridge. It is quite big. Here I can wash some dishes. I have some pots here. Two spoons. Two forks. Two knives I can put things here. I didn’t have a cooker. And I asked to my landlord “Hey can I have some cooker?” He brought me cooker So I can cook if I want. Okay, let’s see. What kind of cooker I got. This is for one pot But I think it is enough. Just next door I have this one for shoes. This is very nice. I can put shoes here. Clean Right? In Thailand, you must take off your shoes at the inside. Here it’s toilet. It’s like this. And the light is here. My landlord was kind. He left something here. When I got the flat. I can put things here. like this Just press. I am really happy that I have glass here. I don’t need to make the floor wet. In Asian culture still They don’t have this kind of separation or curtain around shower. Once you take shower The floor is wet But Thankfully I have this. So I don’t need to make the floor wet This is really nice thing. This is very Thai thing At every hotel or apartment, they have this. Once you turn on hot water Just after two or three seconds, you will have very nice hot shower. I have a big television. But I don’t watch TV. So actually I’ve never used it. It’s not the thing I need. But Good to have television. Feel like I am living in civilized age. And here another space. And here is my bed. It is quite a big bed. And I really love that drawing so much. But I don’t like very dark grey gloomy drawing I love something like colorful beautiful because I love smiling I love to have positive energy. And it gives something positive energy to me. So I am really happy with this drawing. And Here for make up or other things. And it has mirror here And I can sit here. And this is for You know clothes and things like that. And there is one more thing. Beautiful thing in my house You want to see? Okay It’s a beautiful place. Isn’t it? At this moment it’s still very hot. But after one month It would get a little bit cool down. I don’t know how How much it would be cool down. It would be very nice to sit here and drink something. And you know enjoy the beautiful mountain there I have more beautiful things to show you But before showing. I will talk about my room a little bit more. There are a few ways to find a flat in Chiang Mai, Thailand. The first one is walk in. There are so many condos. It can be a small studio. or it can be big studio. or like one bed room. There are so many options. It can be really empty. You have to buy bed sheet and no wifi. or it can be very luxury one. The second way is to use agency. There are a few agencies in Chiang Mai. One of biggest one has so many flats with them. So they connect customers and landlords. If you call the company, they will pick you up and they will show you everywhere flats which you want. And third one, you post on facebook page. The fourth thing is that you find on Airbnb. But I don’t recommend fourth thing. Because Airbnb can be really expensive in Chiang Mai. two times more expensive. To use airbnb is not that smart in Chiang Mai. I found my flat on Facebook. I pay 9,000 baht for one month. Deposit is 9,000 baht. I travel over six years and I’ve never been back home seven years. Sometimes I really want to have such home. I don’t miss South Korea anymore. I am just so used to stay on the road. But sometimes I really want to have home. You know like this kind of flat. So I decided to spend more money. It’s only $270. And I have swimming pool gym and big studio beautiful balcony So it’s good deal. I will show you swimming pool and the rooftop. It’s very beautiful. Are you guys ready? Okay, let’s go out again. Swimming pool is on fifth floor. So I have to go down. Here is people living. And here is gym and swimming pool. Here is a toilet. You have locker and key is here. and shower toilet It’s very clean and nice one. And here is gym. Here are a few things. There is A.C which you can turn on. nice view very nice view And here is swimming pool. Swimming pool on fifth floor. What do you expect? swimming pool on fifth floor very nice one It’s deeper than my height on the other side. But I am learning swimming so it would be not bad. There are some seat you can enjoy. There is a big shopping mall. Here is jacuzzi. But I don’t know when they turn on. Even they have sauna here. It’s already too hot outside. Why do you need sauna? Let’s go to rooftop. I need sunglasses. It’s too bright. The way to the view. It’s a bit scary. They don’t maintain here. But Just after one second It has a nice view. This is amazing. Big shopping mall. And highway. Mountain Sometimes It can be covered by the cloud. Then it’s so beautiful. You can walk around Check out All Chiang Mai view Thank you for watching my Thai apartment tour. I hope you enjoy. Please leave comment Thump up Like Follow my Instagram Youtube And Facebook I just got the idea Maybe I will take the video. of 30 different kind of apartment in Chiang Mai to show you You can guess what kind of apartment you can get here. I will show you a big one small one Expensive one cheap one So you can get the idea of Chiang Mai flat here Again Thank you for watching And Have a good day Ciao Ciao See ya! Okay Today film done It’s so hot. I am sweating like pig What I need is to swim

I must warn you that you must be careful when you rent a flat in Chiang Mai.
My landlord didn't want to give my deposit back on the day I leave. He said it was written on the contract that he will give my deposit back the day after I leave. But it was not true that it was not written like that. My landlord kept saying that just leave the key and I will give you money via paypal tomorrow after inspection. We had some argument that I said I would not leave the house until you come. Then he suddenly came to the room, shouted "Give me the key", acted as so rude guy ever, and changed door lock with tools violently. Then he charged me extra money for changing lock. It was crazy experience at the end. When he showed very violent act like kicking my bag, I asked help from the office. But none of them helped to call the police. All of them were at his side!!!

While I stayed at the flat, he came to my room always without notification. One time I was talking about the payment on messenger with him. Then suddenly he came and knocked my door at 11:30 pm when I was on the bed after turning off the light! Crazy! Australian Landlord, 59 years living with Thai girl stayed on the same building and he came to my flat without notification always. No respect at all.

When I rented other flat through the office at other condo, it was no problem at all. But this time it was big pain. So be careful to rent a flat in Chiang Mai through people.

When I had the contract with the office directly, it was so easy. But when I rented from foreigner landlord, it was crazy bad experience.

Watch out! Don't lose your deposit! It is quite common problem in Thailand that landlord knows once you leave, you cannot come back. So, they can act like whatever they want at the end. My land lord was doing Speaker Coach and doing some M.C in Chiang Mai. But not trustful person at all. You never know until you have the problem. So good luck if you look for a flat in Chiang Mai.

270$ is kind of expensive . But if you factor in the swiming pool , the gym (which is not THAT equiped) ,the security , maybe the area of town the building is in and the view from the balcony , 270$ is ok . Not the best deal ever but it's ok , expensive but kind of worth it .

I like your video very much. Well edited. Good personality. Looks like everything was very good until you wrote the details about the Landlord below. I would not want to deal with someone like that. He's a total jerk. It should be against the law for a Landlord to bother you after 9pm. He was violent and yelling. That would make me not rent there. I got ripped off by an Auzzie who ran a phony language school named Mathew Kay. The American Consulate contacted the Thai police and we are going after him. Must be a problem with bad Australians in Chiang Mai. I want to only rent from Thai landlords. How do you finance your travel lifestyle? Are you a Digital Nomad? Thanks for an interesting and valuable video. Love your place, the views and everything but the Landlord situation. I don't need a pool. Maybe I can find a place without a pool for the same money.

All luxuries are for the fucking westeners. I dont know how stupid the poor of the 3d world should be to be continuously licking american ass and dreaming of selling their daughters to the fat old pieces of shit having a lot of toilet paper called dollars. Really the problem of the poor is not that they are poor, but in the absence of brain.

Here's my strategy for not getting ripped off on the deposit. From the beginning negotiate for a minimal deposit. The landlord will go for it if there are many units unoccupied and he needs desperately to fill them with tenants. If he says no, move on to next place. Secondly just assume you won't get it back when you leave but you don't really care because it was just a small amount anyway. That's my strategy that I have used.

For a non-native speaker, your English is quite good! Nice studio apartment. Plenty big. Use some room dividers to section the space to make it feel cozy. The landlord gave you an induction cooktop. They are EXCELLENT for cooking, because the temperature can be controlled instantly just like cooking with gas. Good job with the video! Thanks for sharing!
