The world’s most acclaimed map of Bangkok is now available in the UK!!
August 14, 2007 (PRLEAP.COM) Travel NewsVarden Limited and tripneeds.com are pleased to announce the launch of Asia’s best selling travel map into the UK Market. Nancy Chandler’s Map of Bangkok “alias the Market Map” is widely seen as the best tourist map available for one of Asia’s most vibrant and progressive cities – Bangkok. For the first time this map is available in the UK for purchase before visitors travel to Thailand.
Varden Limited has been appointed by Bangkok based publishing house, Nancy Chandler Graphics, as the sole UK based distributor of their range of informative and quirky tourist maps.
Their famous map of Bangkok is now on its 23rd edition and is still widely acclaimed as the best tourist map of Bangkok, and is even recommended by rival publications such as the Lonely Planet’s guide to Bangkok.
About Nancy Chandler’s Maps
Nancy Chandler’s Maps are unique, colourful hand lettered maps. The Bangkok map 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 Road and the more upmarket expatriate haven of Sukhumvit area, with clear indications of where each BTS skytrain station and MRT subway station is.
The map is accompanied by a 72 page pocketbook size index including secrets rarely shared with visitors (for example, shops and sales supporting good causes, and dining tips "For the Sweet Tooth"). Bars are categorized by their crowds for those who want to befriend fun Thais, hang out with other travellers, meet expatriates, listen to live music, test the local brew pubs, support their football team at a sports bar, go pub crawling, or just enjoy a sunset drink atop a quiet riverside guesthouse. Restaurant listings include Nancy's favourites and contact details. Other listings include cooking classes, cinemas, hobbies, spas, sports, supermarkets, etc.
The maps really are a guide on their own leaving those heavy guide books such as the Lonely Planet quite redundant.
