Hi,

Highly recommend the Nancy Chandler map which can be bought both here in Australia or in CM itself.

Such a great map with tons of things marked on there and easy to find your way around to visit temples, Wats and a wide variety of interesting things. It is worth buying and you will use it such a lot.

I bought mine from Melbourne Map centre but you can get it at Gecko Books and Backstreet Books in CM.

If you are coming via BKK to CNX you can buy the map there. In the book shop near the departure food hall and Boots Pharmacy.

There are 2 free maps available in the Chiang Mai Airport on my earlier trips I used a combination of all.

The old city isn't that big. I used to pick a point and start walking straight then left right and so on and so on. Ended wherever I ended. Always found the fun was just wandering and exploring. The maps mentioned are fine if you are after a specific place.

Your best bet is to purchase the Nancy Chandler map, masses of information and you won't regret it

Agree fully on Nancy chandlers map

I am also a great fan of just starting to walk down the old streets and getting lost - take a look at my threads from last summer on getting lost in Chiang Mai
