Over the past fifteen years (180 plus issues), a number of writers have contributed to Citylife (formerly Chiang Mai Newsletter). Throughout 2006, to celebrate the publication’s 15 year anniversary, we will bring you a pick of the past every month.

With space, we will have more stalls, more food, more drinks, more performances and activities and raise MORE for charity. ***Booth Booking Now Closed*** ***Please contact [email protected] for more information*** Book your stall now! Suggest a charity for our donations (last year we raised over 400,000 for three charities). And donate deep! We are asking you to donate anything we can use in our auction or tombola, all proceeds will go to charity. This will be a fun and fantastic day out and we can’t wait to see you all again.
