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 included co-working spaces. For those with children, more family-friendly fun options. For those concerned about ethical elephant 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, you'll find lots of artsy gift shops and neat charity-linked boutiques. Craft beer and cocktail 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 the Old Town, Greater Chiang Mai and Out of Town Trips. It is also accompanied by a special visitor and expatriate-friendly 88 page downloadable directory to help guide you to all the city offers, including restaurant phone numbers and recommendations. For those moving to Chiang Mai or planning longer stays, an additional 20 page directory for expatriates is available.
