The latest GTR Golden Triangle guide map is now out, after a lengthy delay checking all the new attractions & developments.
The 2nd edition has a 66 item guide to the highlights of touring the GT. This list gives you an idea of things & places to look for as you go. Previously some people who bought the map were not sure exactly what to look out for or where to go; but now with the GT highlights listed you have an indication of what the local attractions maybe & what to look out for. The attractions list even includes different ethnic groups that may be prominent in some towns &/or only found in that area, & so are worth noting as you pass by.
