Chiang Mai is a great place for Digital Nomad makers. There is one issue; If you are asking yourself “where can I buy electronic parts in Chiang Mai?”, this post might help you. Thailand is nothing like Shenzhen in China. So, where to find parts, raw components for makers and repairs?

SMT and Anything else
Non usual or SMT components: I’ve been cycling around a lot and there’s no miracle. You have to order online. There are sellers in Bangkok and it’ll take a few days but their websites are in Thai. Or buy on any usual online store. That’s what local professional do, they order on Aliexpress! And it’s cheaper too.
