Imagine if someone had done all your online destination research for you and presented it on paper for much faster and deeper review of your options. No zooming in and out, no multiple links to click on. That is what we have done.
We've packaged Chiang Mai for both visitors and expatriates, all the information available in one place, with a directory including unique listings and recommendations.
Personalize your stay in the city by adding a craft workshop or farming experience, attending a lecture, or taking a few Thai boxing classes. Popular cooking and massage courses are also included. If into art films, schedule an evening at one of the regular indie cinema nights. Pub crawls are suggested for those so inclined, cool rooftop bars too, and high end dining and drinking for those eager to splurge on something special. For digital nomads, we've added co-working spaces. For those with children, more family-friendly fun options. For those concerned about ethical animal tourism, we've outlined key things to consider before booking a day trip to an elephant sanctuary. Foodies will love the wide range of options now available in Chiang Mai (searching online for the most popular ones won't give you the same overview of all to choose from). Vegetarian cafes have multiplied too. For shoppers, we've added more artsy gift shops and some real neat charity-linked boutiques. Craft beer lovers won't be bored, new well-stocked bars dotting the map.
The map includes detailed guides to the Night Bazaar and the backstreets of Warorot Market (Chiang Mai's Chinatown) as well as Greater Chiang Mai and the City Center. It is also accompanied by a special visitor and expatriate-friendly 105 page downloadable directory to help guide you to all the city offers, including restaurant phone numbers and recommendations. (The paper directory version is only 80 pages, focused on visitor needs.)
