Travel on the Brain Founder and Hub53 Coworking and Coliving Space Resident Reveals Her Favorite Chiang Mai Cafes.


Recently, we had the pleasure of hosting the vivacious Annemarie Stehl at Hub53. Not only is she great at picking out cute coffee shops, but she is also the Founder and Videographer for the Travel on the Brain blog and YouTube channel. 

We sat down with her to get the inside scoop on why she loved Chiang Mai and Hub53!

What's your name and occupation? 

Annemarie Strehl, Freelance Creative Director and Video Producer.


Why did you decide to come to Chiang Mai?

I heard of its digital nomad scene, affordable dining options and beautiful nature.


What are your favorite things about this neighborhood?

The cafe scene! How laid back and easy to reach everything is. Plus, you can easily get to doi suthep from here.


What's been your favorite thing about your stay at Hub53?

Meeting awesome people who share a similar lifestyle - no need to explain yourself too much and introduce yourself to new people every day (I travel a lot).


Why did you pick a coliving/coworking space instead of renting an apartment or getting a hotel?

I wanted to be able to have my own space but also force myself to not retreat too much. That can easily be a problem with being an introvert.


What's one thing that cannot be missed in Chiang Mai?

Exploring doi suthep - whether it is a short or long hike, a temple or village visit. Also, at least one cool hipster cafe needs to be visited (my fave are Baan Por-Dee and Pencil Lucky Cafe)
