Movie-goer seeks more info
Your use of the new movie locator leaves me feeling short on choices.
No matter how many times I have tried to get movie times and locations for
Chiang Mai, I can only get what is going on at Kad Suan Kaew. What about the
more abundant airport mall theaters?

Congratulations on the steadily rising quality of ‘Chiang Mai Mail’, which I
am now able to read in the library of the Economics Faculty, CMU. Just two
queries from your issue of September 8th.
Your front page story about the creation of a new district in Chiang Mai,
currently named Wat Chan, must have left every reader wondering where on
earth it is located. I simply asked the excellent cartographer David
Unkovich of Golden Triangle Maps fame. The prompt answer was “halfway
between Samoeng and Pai.”
Mark Whitman’s column refers to the “lamented” Hillside 4 Rooftop Charity
Party. This infers that it is no more. Has no-one come forwards to organise
it yet? I think we should be told.
Whatever, keep up the good work,
Editor replies: Tambon Wat Chan, formerly known as a Tambon (sub
district) in Mae Chaem district, Chiang Mai. This year, it was royally
announced on July 7, 2009 as the 25th new district, namely Galyani Vadhana
district of Chiang Mai. It is about 135 kilometres, northwest of Chiang Mai
city. It takes about a two hour drive to get to the new district which is
on the highway from Chiang Mai to Mae Hong Son, driving about 13 kilometers
before arriving at Pai district town. Turn left for another 40 kilometres,
you are then in the new Galayani Vaddhana district.
