About Nancy Chandler's Map of Bangkok
Described by guidebooks and travel writers as "the best tourist map of Bangkok", "an indispensable guide" and "the very best resource", Nancy Chandler's colorful Map of Bangkok includes intricately detailed area maps of Central Bangkok, Greater Bangkok, the Central Shopping Area, Chatuchak Weekend Market, Chinatown, the backpacker's haven of Khao San and expatriate haven of Sukhumvit. The map is accompanied by an 96 page pocket-size directory/guide allowing visitors to personalize their stay, with extensive vegetarian listings, special sights and shops for kids, yoga studios, sports bars, cooking classes, rare book shops, and much more often overlooked by other guides. Listings come with contact details and operating hours as appropriate. Short stay visitors are offered recommendations for one-stop shopping and guides to major malls. For expatriates, Nancy Chandler’s map is the essential lifestyle guide for everything that they would need to help them adjust into their new home such as the locations of local fresh food and organic produce markets, costume rental shops, Thai language schools and even where to play ice hockey!

Note: Print on the map is much more legible than in the images on this page, we promise!
