It also came with a booklet of additional information to help locate places on the map. Nice touch.
Addendum April 23, 2008:
I remembered to add to this review after completing my trip to Chiang Mai and am pleased to do so because this map was a real help in my travels.
I used this map extensively for a five day stay in Chiang Mai and it was extremely useful in helping me navigate the city, including the Night Bazaar, Warorot market, and pretty much everything else, including a couple out of city outings.
Considering that the map is dated 2006, it was still remarkably up to date -- probably because many places marked are sucessful businesses.
Wandering about Chiang Mai there is a lot to be discovered and this map can help you do it. It was much more helpful than the maps included in Lonely Planet Laos, especially with the included booklet I mentioned above -- that let me find places not mentioned in the guidebook and often not individually shown on this map.
This is not a review of the city -- every city has its pluses and minuses, yet I wandered about day and night without negative incident.
