Described by top 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 is jam packed with information. It includes detailed area maps of not just Central Bangkok but also Greater Bangkok, the Central Shopping Area, Chatuchak Weekend Market, Chinatown, the backpacker's haven of Khao San and the more upmarket expatriate haven of Sukhumvit area. The map is accompanied by an 96 page pocketbook-size directory/guide including secrets rarely shared with visitors. From quality charity outlets to where to buy XL clothing, from chocolate cafes to vegetarian outlets, from comedy nights to art films and wine bars, from yoga to ice hockey, there's something for everyone within. For the short stay visitor, we've highlighted recommended sights, restaurants, bars, and one-stop shopping venues. For those staying longer, we've added more detail for the expatriate suburbs of Bang Na and Nonthaburi not usually covered by others. Free updates are available online as well, and event updates on Facebook.Biographie de l'auteur :
American artist Nancy Chandler has been creating unique maps, cards and gifts celebrating life in Thailand since she moved there in the late 1960s with her young family. A native of San Francisco, her unique style is characterized by the use of bright colors, humourous comments and witty insights, and the ability to make sense out of chaos when creating detailed market maps. She now spends much of each year in the US with her youngest daughter, Kim, a high functioning Down Syndrome young lady (and an artist as well). Nancy does however return to Thailand annually on research trips and to visit friends and family, including her two other daughters, Nima (now her business partner and responsible for updating Nancy's maps) and Siri, a mindfulness teacher for children.
