About my friend Nancy Chandler. If anyone knows what to do in Bangkok, it’s her. A co-worker tipped me off to Nancy’s intricately detailed, hand-drawn maps the last time I visited. Not only does Nancy identify and index every nook, cranny and alley in this city, but she also provides useful, firsthand advice on transportation, shopping, eating and entertainment. Her guide is not just a resource – it’s a companion – and I couldn’t imagine navigating Bangkok without it.
