Since we loved Chiang Mai so much, we’ve started thinking about what it might look like to live there longer term. We’ve done some research about international schools in Chiang Mai.
Much of this list is based on the list of schools Nic’s Restaurant and Playground kindly sent to us. Please check out the map of the international schools in Chiang Mai we created.
