A bit of self-promotion here. A new guidebook for the Phuket and Andaman coast region has recently been released in the UK, and will be available in the US and other regions later this year.
The Andaman Coast Footprint Focus Guide has been extracted from the latest Footprint Thailand travel guide, due to come out this year, too.
I wrote and updated the Phuket and Southern Andaman coast sections.
This is the publisher’s description of the Focus Guides:
Footprint Focus guides are the latest range of guidebooks from Footprint. Starting from £5.99, Focus guides are small, soft cover guidebooks which focus on specific destinations like São Paulo in Brazil, or classic itineraries like Kilimanjaro & Northern Tanzania. Rather than cover an entire country, Footprint Focus guides hone in on key areas, providing all the info you need and none of the stuff you don’t!
Like our Handbooks, these guides are reliable, up-to-date, and provide opportunities to get off the beaten track. Footprint Focus guides are also slim enough to fit in your pocket – making them highly portable and perfect for shorter holidays.
