There are a wealth of social, cultural and non-profit organizations in Chiang Mai that enrich and improve the lives of both the expat and local community. Chiang Mai Expats Club (CEC) is proud to be sponsored by several well-known, active community-service organizations. As such, CEC helps these organizations publicize their events and activities to the members of CEC. Sponsors are responsible for the legality of the products, services and activities they provide. CEC assumes no responsibility for any activities of the sponsors, nor are the sponsors acting on behalf of CEC.


Chiang Mai International Rotary Club

Chiang Mai International Rotary Club is the newest Rotary Club in Thailand. Our first introductory meeting was held on 29 August 2013. Since then we have grown to a core group of women and men, from many nationalities, committed to the Rotary guiding principle of “Service Above Self”. Membership is open to all, regardless of gender, religious affiliation, political affiliation, sexual orientation, or nationality.

We are the only Rotary club in Northern Thailand that conducts all of its meetings solely in the English language.

We meet on Tuesday evenings at 7:30 PM at Hong Kong Lucky Restaurant, 5/8 Soi 7, Ratchadamnoen (Soi 7 is opposite the big police station in the Old City).

Members, visiting Rotarians and invited guests are welcome to gather at 6:00 pm for social time and to enjoy a set menu meal of Hong Kong favorites. The cost is 300 Baht per person by prior reservation and 400 Baht per person with no reservation. Coffee and tea are served during the meeting at 7:30 pm and visiting Rotarians and invited guests are asked to contribute 100 Baht to cover this expense.
