Has anyone tried "PointAsia" it is kind of like Google earth, but better resolution. It is SW you download and can view see an arial view of any town in Thailand & other SE asian countries. I use it to look at some property I am thinking about buying. Great stuff really. Try it. look for the english tab. There is a sequence of installs you need to do. It is worth the effort.

This is by far the best on-line map I've found so far. It goes down to 100m guage, shows all sorts of info, hotels/bars/seven elevens/bars/nosh shops/bars/nightclubs/bars/and if your fav bars not mentioned tell them and they will put it on.

Thanks for that stattointhailand

Best fold up map I've seen so far is the one from Thinknet

MapMagic CD + Large Paper Map

[bilingual Version]

Road Map of Thailand 2005-2006

299 Baht

*

2nd best would be Michelin map # 965

New number is # 751

The road atlas is # 165 with a slightly better scale.

Surin to Khorat: Not long :o

I can recommend the MapMagic package...the bilingual feature really helps, my wife is learning to read maps.

I can't work out why chicks spin the maps around and around as you turn corners or bends in the road? :o:D The constant moving map drives me up the wall :wai: Thank goodness for the Navigator....now if only I could find one that didnt have such an annoying voice, its kinda like listening to that Steven Hawkings bloke....grrrr

*** If you have any good street maps of towns and cities, in this area, please post them here without comments.

There is a new bilingual street map of Ubon Ratchathani just out.

4 one-sided sheets, colour, covers the whole urban area: Ubon and Wairn Chamrup. It claims to have every street, temple, school, goverment office and bus route, and I've found nothing missing so far... it's got everything down to roadside milestones and traffic lights and even the Ubon mosque (who knew there was one?).

It's published by Faculty of Management Science, Ubon Ratchathani Uni, and lists their phone number as 045353804 (maybe they'll post you a copy in return for a money order...)

The Ubon TAT office doesn't sell it for some reason, but they have a list of places in Ubon that do: Wrong Way, N-Joy, Risotto, Sakhon and Fern Hut restaurants, Ratchathani Hotel, Ubon San bookshop...

Best map I've seen in Thailand... sells for 150 baht. Check it out.

I was in despair of finding a street map of KKC until I wandered into a book shop in the Com mart, next to the Khosa Hotel. I took a chance on the ThinkNet/MapMagic package and have been delighted with it.

*Scalable from 1:7.6m to 1:5,000

*Thai/English language switch

*Search (I use it all the time to look up places mentioned in TV, The Post, The Nation etc.)

*Zoom and pan

*Distance measuring

*Layers for hotels, gas, hospitals, places of worship, government offices et soforth

*Add/mark favorites

*Long/Lat link to cursor

*Instant online to the website

It does not have the smaller villages, but usually has the wat in the village. That's how we found ours.

Oddly enough, it has been an aid to learning Thai pronounciation: I pronounce a place name, switch the map to Thai, and my wife corrects me. The switch on occasion also helps her figure out what the devil I am trying to say.

For overall utility, you can't beat it, especially for B300.

Check out your Google Earth. Sangkha, Surin area has been upgraded, much better resolution. Not sure of the image date (where can you find it?) but this time it is a dry season image, the previous image was taken in a high wet season.
